    Rosette making business- advice please!

    My mum used to be a riding instructor, and had a few horses who she used to teach on from home. Every year, for the handful of people she used to teach, we held a 'Halloween' show for. This involved dressing up the fences with pumpkins etc. We struggles for ages and ages to find Halloween...

    Woukd you tow in this?

    How far are you going? If it's not too far and you can stick to a slow speed i would go... However you also have to think about the winds whilst your riding, will your horse be ok to compete if it's really windy and the school rattles a lot? As others have said, wait and see nearer the...

    Shwmae horse products

    The pic of the grey horse in red good is my friend; I thought it looked far too close to his eyes... She ordered that in the discount sale in December and it arrived beginning of jan, so very quick turn around! Bexcy-bee x

    Can I take my food and leave?

    If it's cheaper to move with food, why not buy some bags and then you can move straight away? That won't be much over £20 for food, and a couple of hay bales you could get for £10 to get you going, which would stop hassle from current YO and stop new yard charging too much? Bexcy-bee x

    zipless long boots?

    I LOVE my ariat bromonts, zip up the back that broke from my fat calves, wrote an email complaining and hey presto, brand new boots back with super super strong zips included. Fantastic customer services, and my boots were 2 years old and used daily! It happened to 2 pairs of them, and they...

    Opinions on a horse??

    I like her, a lot! If I was on the look out to buy one, she would probably be in my yard. If I'm right in thinking, correct shoeing can help with dishing, and as others have said, more developed muscle and I don't think it would be that obvious. If you have the time and money to put in to...

    How many horses have you owned?

    I've (between me my mum and my sister) owned about 12, and loaned 5. My mums first horse was a gorgeous coloured 7/8 Arab, very well bred, but was back in the day when coloureds weren't allowed to be Arabs, but he was gorgeous! Real rich chestnut colour and white Then there was Cass 12.2hh...

    Stiffness when schooling

    No one else rides her but me, excluding the odd hack once every 6 weeks or so, so it's definitely not that! Lol Thanks for this, I will continue with what I'm doing. Her lateral work leaves a lot to be desired, so don't think that would help too much at the moment, though I will give it a...

    Stiffness when schooling

    The mare I share is really stiff on her left rein. I haven't schooled her for a little while and she's definitely deteriorated since I last did. Before I try to go down the route of saddle checks and/or physio/backman, is there any schooling exercising that would be able to help? I've been...

    Tail swishing in the transitions - would it put you off?

    I had a horse that used to swish it's tail, bad enough to look like a propellor, got him fully vetted etc and it turned out he needed a bit of physio, and a new saddle. He came right with one physio session and never had any problems again, he was 8 when we bought him, and 10 years on he's still...

    Weird and Wacky Passport Names?

    White smoke is much more acceptable now he's greying out! When I first got him, he was sooo dark, and I had a few (horsey and non horsey) people comment on the 'white' bit lol, but it does suit him and is pretty :) I bought a youngster called Domino in his passport, and wanted a 'posh' name...

    Signalling left...

    The way to do it when driving is to hold your arm out like your signalling right, but then move it in a circular motion from your shoulder if that makes sense, so I would imagine it's the same for leading Bexcy-bee x

    Horse tunout at Olympia - no one likes an armchair critic.....

    I was commenting on this tonight with my mum; most of the GBR riders are unplaited, whilst most non GBR are plaited! But agree about the tails, don't understand it personally! I understand that the grooms work tirelessly, it's not easy and paid peanuts, but even so, if anyone knows which...

    Derby House complaints

    Personally, I've never had a problem with anything ordered from Derby House. One item arrived broken (the lid of a cream) and DH refunded delivery and sent out a new item straight away. However, I'm feeling a bit, shall we say suspicious, about this post, shwmae comes to mind, especially as...

    Passport proof of ownership

    Please can someone point me in the direction of where to find an official site saying that passports aren't proof of ownership please. Friend has a horse on loan and the owner won't give it to them as they want to keep it as proof of ownership Thanks Bexcy-bee x

    They have the time to respond on a FB comment about being in a meeting all day, so maybe they are waiting to come out of that, and will respond to this thread then. Hmmm, flying pigs was that? ;) Bexcy-bee x
