    Help with a fat dog!

    Our average sized beagle that we got from rescue, after a year of having him and large amounts of walking and running. He will not lose the weight! He's on two small meals of chappie a day which he was on before we got him. He does an hour walk once a day during the week, comes for a 8 mile run...

    Suggetions/Exercises for a rider with uneven seat.

    Ahh that's very interesting! My horse has monthly physio and it's funny how we look after our horses more than ourselves!

    Suggetions/Exercises for a rider with uneven seat.

    Ahh didn't think of that! I do struggle with some range of movement but didn't think this would be a factor. Will look into it!

    Suggetions/Exercises for a rider with uneven seat.

    I tend to sit to the left in my saddle, which results in my horse being heavier in the right hand. Tried no stirrups and being on the lunge without stirrups etc. Saddle was checked in January and refitted so that's fine. Any exercise to help with this as I presume it's a core strength issue...

    Hunts in South Beds/Herts/Bucks area?

    New to hunting but wanting to take my mare, she's finally fit enough after all the bad weather but was wondering if there were any in beds/herts/bucks area that haven't finished their season just yet?

    To keep trying or to depart from my best friend

    This is exactly her! Been through every possible avenue with her if it could be something physical even a full vetting with bloods but nothing has come up, and she works completely fine at home! I feel the same about my mare, we've had a great time so I just feel I'm being greedy for asking her...

    To keep trying or to depart from my best friend

    I previously said she'd had the same feed for several years, made no change and a full vetting and perfectly sound no issues.

    To keep trying or to depart from my best friend

    This is exactly what I was thinking, also she's been prodded around enough and it's unfair to keep digging for more and more if that's all she's saying is that she's just had enough.

    I asked my vet about this and he said he wouldn't suspect them but said if I wish to investigate further to get in contact so may be something that I'll do next, thank you.

    To keep trying or to depart from my best friend

    Hmm not thought about changing the saddle as she was fine with it before and having it regularly checked altered, my saddler is very thorough and talks me through what she is doing like you've just explained, she's had all the other possible issues you've mentioned already checked. Her back...

    To keep trying or to depart from my best friend

    Awhh! She is fantastic, taught my boyfriend to ride and he enjoys an hour hack (only if he's allowed the expensive dressage saddle, as she's only allowed the best!) I don't think I can sell her on until I'm 100% sure there's no physical issue going on even though I am 99% sure.

    To keep trying or to depart from my best friend

    Yep, this is why I'm at a loss of what to do but she needs to be happy and I'm not going to force her to do something she doesn't want to do. What would cutting out her hard feed do? She's only on cool&collected with happy hoof.

    To keep trying or to depart from my best friend

    No pain as back, physio and teeth seen to numerous times in the last year and bloods taken by vet and passed a vetting. No behavioural changes elsewhere apart from the ring. Shes not a excitable horse, she seems to just enjoy the laid back atmosphere of group lessons with more horses. My...

    To keep trying or to depart from my best friend

    Oh wow, felt very well in herself then! :) I'm very lucky to have my pony out to an amazing hacking home but I fear I won't get the same luck twice, I don't think loan may be an option as she would need the fund the purchase of another horse is it came to that.

    To keep trying or to depart from my best friend

    I had considered your questions of the horse or competition, but I merely love it so much as she gave me that enjoyment! Just a shame she's changed her mind! Yes, very sympathic instructor and my friend a 2* event rider who both say she's just lacking the willing to please and oomph she used...

    To keep trying or to depart from my best friend

    I enjoy competing, especially as my mare made it so fun and enjoyable but I hoped we'd affiliate and do well and it's something I've always wanted to do when the time came. She loves sponsored rides/big group hacks and cantering around with others but isn't upset or startled when another horse...

    You wouldn't believe some of the ridiculous answers my friend got for her vet course in a questionnaire! So unhelpful!

    To keep trying or to depart from my best friend

    I've had my wonderful mare for the past 7 years, my first horse that I've brought on from scratch since a 6yo and who is my best friend. We've been and done a bit of everything to which she was always very keen and enjoying herself with good results (well for an amateur that we got above 60% or...

    Schooling help/advice - canter work!

    Oh what a shame, vet is adament she is perfectly healthy and sound as she shows no signs of anything such as kissing spine as I thought something like that. Her canter is still very uphill and forward but she's just not as relaxed as she is in the trot and I wondered if it was more a schooling...

    Schooling help/advice - canter work!

    Hi all, not posted for a while! Just having an odd problem with my horse, owned for 7 years broken by myself! She works well in a nice light outline in walk and trot but over the last few months she's being very stiff in her neck in canter and along her back, but floats along in trot and it is...

    Unaff Dressage, C&T Champs!

    Ahh thank you! I did a lot as a junior but not sure what has changed! Oh nothing to be embarrassed about! my mare was spinning all over the place due to the drilling on the new stables in our first class so that was a state lol!

    Strange advert...

    The first pic looks a bit odd definitely! the other 2 look like he's just resting a black leg. He is only 3 however so maybe balance issue?

    Most interesting comment from a dressage judge?

    I have a pony who's been there done that, who's sadly retired at 21, but she knew the photographer!! At the Chiltern and Thames Winter Championships we had a beautiful warm up and I was feeling great, took our turn up the centre line and the photographer was positioned at B, pony caught on 2...

    Do some people take hi vis/road safety too far...?

    This sounds like a little too much! In summer I usually just stick with a fluorescent jacket and some reflective leg bands on my horses boots. But in winter a fluorescent jacket and a reflective exercise sheet. Think the CCTV is a bit much!! Though initially a good idea if you're in an...

    People who showjump at 100mph !

    Probably the reason I don't spectate anymore! Scares me so much. This is why I prefer dressage as I like to watch a partnership and harmony between a horse and rider, not a big fight and out of control horses/ponies!

    Happy Hacker market?

    I wouldn't be put off, if I was looking for a hacker for my mum I'd want something that was older and had kind of 'been there, done that and now wants a quieter life' Horses are still being ridden well into their 20s so I don't think she's too old at all. Even had a friend who has her horse...
