    Best stirrups for foot injuries

    I'm hoping to have the all clear to ride again this week 🤞 after fracturing my midfoot with a lisfranc ligament tear. My current stirrups are 10 years old which I picked up second hand, just normal bog standard ones. I'm thinking I'm probably going to need some more supportive ones, especially...

Vet came out to scan her and typically she came...

    I measured my 2 and half year old filly today and she's 14.2hh at the bum and 14hh at the wither, did the string test and that says she's expected to reach 15.1hh!! Which has left me very confused since mother is only 12.3hh and father is only 14.2hh with a push! My farrier and vet told me...
