    Premier Equine Rugs and Neck Covers

    I've been a customer of Premier Equine for 15 odd years now. One of the reasons I liked their rugs is that they would let me swap the standard size neck cover that comes with all the 6"6/6"3 rugs for a large one when I ordered. No matter what size of horse I had, the standard neck was too...

    Equestrian.com have they gone out of business?

    I have used them for years with no problems..... Earlier this month I bought a pair of Ariat boots in the sale that arrived in good time, they didn't fit so sent them back. I was waiting to see if they had a return in my size but that wasn't to be. I phoned them a few weeks ago and asked for a...

    Clip on skull cap hat cam?

    I remember reading about a hat cam that clipped on to a jockey skull cap. It was kind of like a plastic alice band that had a camera on it. It clipped to the front of the skull cap just beneath the hat cover. It was unobtrusive and I think it would not cause a problem in the event of a rider...

    Renting stables in exchange for maintenance rather than money

    I am responsible for a small yard (8 acres, 3 stables and a small woodchip outdoor school) not far from Hartpury, the ownership situation is complex and it isn't located in the most ideal area.

    Repairing the end of a schooling whip

    There must be about 400 dressage schooling whips at my yard, unloved, unused in a corner but no-one can quite bear to throw them out - without the end flicky bit, nobody uses these..... So some kind person tootles off and buys a new whip then everyone uses it until the flicky bit drops off, it...

    I didn't get tickets for the XC test event but managed to watch a large part of the course from outside the perimeter fences looking in. Some friends didn't manage to get XC tickets but are there for the dressage, I was asked if they would be able to see any fences on XC day. The...
