    Competing at university

    I went to Glasgow Caledonian and managed to get on to the team in first year as it was the first time the uni was in BUCS. The other 3 girls ran the club and I was the only other person who wanted to compete! I then captained the team in my 3rd and 4th year. We normally came last but...

    Competing at university

    Glasgow Uni is fairly competitive. This is going back a few years but my sister had competed at 2* and only made the C team! However, the riding club is more than just competitions. There are weekly lessons and a good social side so i would definitely still join the club no matter what level you...

    Where have all the sharers gone?

    I've been keeping my eye out for a horse to ride but sadly I'm too heavy for your one. Where have you been advertising as I can't see anything available?

    badminton 2015 coverage

    I thought Harry Meade was brilliant in the commentary box. He was giving really insightful information about the riders, horses and the course. I was so annoyed with the show jumping coverage. I can't believe they only showed 6 horses.

    Horsey contacts in Kirkmichael/Pitlochry area

    There really isn't much going on in the horse world up there. It is worth contacting the Atholl Estates to see if they have any jobs going or any cottages to rent. The trekking centre sometimes do grass livery but nothing more as they don't have stables. But very handy as Blair are hosting the...

    Nice places to live commutable to Edinburgh and Glasgow

    One thing you will notice about moving to the west coast is the rain, especially coming from Aberdeenshire. I've lived in the west, east and north east. It would take a lot for me to move back to the west because of the weather.

    Fitness levels for hilly v. flat courses?

    With my local 'big' events being burgie and Blair I know that you have to have a get your horse much fitter for a hilly course. I've seen far too many people at all levels not getting their horses fit enough and it really annoys me. I was once jump judging at burgie and had to stop a rider due...

    WEG Cross Country Thread

    I think we've done really well to get 5 in the top 25. I hope all horses recover and trot up well. I'm working tomorrow so will be missing it as well.

    Which jacket/jodhpur combo?

    Tweed is personally preference. Blue tweed does look good with greys but green or brown will go with all. If you have a black jacket go with black gloves, brown gloves for everything else. I normally just use those really cheap gloves as I always loose them.

    Which jacket/jodhpur combo?

    I agree with Maia. What you have sounds fine for local shows, but if you want a new jacket buy a tweed jacket. One thing I do have to say is that I would never wear a stock shirt without a stock. I think white does look better with black, but if you get a navy jacket then get a cream one. For...

    Buying a first pony for my 10yr old daughter

    I grew up riding ancient loan ponies, it was great getting a new one each year which matched by height and ability. A 16 year old seemed like a youngster and good ponies get passed round the Pony Club like nobodies business. When I was 10 I was still on my 12.2hh (unknown age!) but my sister had...
