    Show jumping rules

    I remember at the last Olympics that only 3 or 4 memebers of the nation's competitors can go through to the individual final. Is this still correct?

    I have just moved my horse from my parents to where I am working. 3 hours in the lorry. He is on grass livery and there is no where else to put him apart from the field he is in. I took him down on Sunday and he seemed to be ok but there was one pony who was being quite balshy and was chasing...

    My (non riding) Burgie Report

    As everyone is writing up their reports I thought I would do one too. My Burgie started on Wednesday evening with the briefing and supper for all the helpers. I have never seen it rain so much as it did on Wednesday but to be honest the ground really needed it, as before that we have had about...

    Katie Jarram's Comment re hats

    I wonder if anyone will take any notice of it. (personally I don't think they will) I really don't see why wearing a hat is such a big deal to some people. I know a couple of people who would not be here today had they not a proper hat on. I was watching some showing class today and to be...

    U18 Eventing Champs

    Why do they not have their own section? I can't tell who is a junior and who isn't. Also is it just me or is the JRN champs more competitive than the U18?

    Sending a horse to the Vet School

    My horse is going to the Dick Vet in Edinburgh tomorrow and just wondering what to send him off with. As we don't know whats wrong with him we don't know how long he will be there for. We have been told they are given basic rations which is fine as he only gets a scoop of pony nuts anyway. He...

    My horse has to go the hospital

    Problems wth canter

    My horse is struggling with canter left. The back lady came last week and said his hip had dropped, put it back in place and said it should be fine. Although slightly better we are still struggling. He can do walk to canter and halt to canter fine but just cant do trot to canter. He seems sound...

    I cannot believe what I heard today.

    I really hope its not true. A couple of years ago the male owner of a riding school was jailed for having sex with a 12 year old girl. The story is horrific. Anyway I just heard that the person who bought the riding school is going to let him work there! I would not be allowing any child to go...

    Lazy horse+ sensitive skin

    I think my horse (which I share with my dad) is the laziest horse in the world. My dad manages ok, but then he is a foot taller than me with much stronger legs! I have to wear spurs for everything, I can get away with not wearing them for hacking, but after yesterday I was thinking I might need...

    K2 and flatwork

    The other day someone posted about doing flatwork in the Albion K2 Jumping saddle. On that post I said I managed ok with it. I would like to change that statement to I cannot do flatwork in that saddle. For ages people have been telling me I have been riding too short so I lengthen my stirrups...

    SJ Report

    Took Tufty to do some Unaff showjumping today. For one reason or another we haven't been out since July! So I went with the aim to just pop round the 70cm and 80cm to see if he could remember what it was all about. Luckily it wasn't an early start as they do 90cm, 1m and 1.10 first and then...

    Maybe I should get the neighbours dog to runaway more often

    Tufty is the laziest thing on four legs. A common comment on the bottom of our dressage sheets is 'it appears that you are working harder than the horse!.' I decided to take him for a school in the field tonight and he was working fine when all of a sudden he spotted my neighbours black lab in...

    Getting a Hacking Jacket made?

    This is a really random question which I don't think anyone will be able to answer! I work in a woolen mill and could get my hands on some lovely tweed at a reasonable price. Would it then be possible to get it made into a hacking jacket? Would this be any cheaper than getting a nice - off the...
