Hi first time I've ventured in here.
Um probably not quite the question your thinking of reading the title.
But can dogs tye up like horse do (azoturia).
My little Patterdale (4yr old)has start having what look like seizures (under vet) and they originally thought epilepsy but he's not...
As title, is this possible? Horse is good at travelling but for one reason or another all partitions are out and need to be so daily.
I want to take my horse xc schooling one afternoon can I just pop him in with no partitions?
Slightly odd thread but just wondering what people's thoughts are on whether or not hunts will go this season.
I am thinking in regards to covid 19 and no large public gatherings.
I guess small hunts would be OK, but what about the big large hunts that attract upwards of 150plus people...
As the title suggests looking into online dressage, this is completely new to me is there more than 1 place that does it? Which do people find best?
Mainly looking for walk and trot and eas6 prelims.
Thank you for any help
I have watched/followed the threads going up each week with different exercises to work on.
I have been trying to use as much of the exercises as possible while Hacking out.
I managed to get a video this evening having a little play/school on my boy what do people think?
With all that is happening atm and the amount of sporting events and large public gatherings( what sort of numbers does this cover) being cancelled or postponed do you think badminton will go ahead, or should it go ahead?
WWhat are peoples thoughts?
I currently have an un-fenced garden and am not able to fence it (rented from an estate) it backs on to fields or a lane.
I cant let my dog out unsupervised because of this, I don't think the estate would fence it and i don't have the money to dog so in a fashion that they would deem...
I know I posted about stringhalt before but I have a different question this time.
Has anyone noticed horses being more sensitive to having legs hosed if they have string halt?
I've a horse atm with string halt in both hinds but the left far more so and he's far more sensitive with...
I'm just wondering if you could offer me a bit of advice,
I'm currently working abroad on a yard and have a limited supply of bits.
Im riding a young horse who is a bit strong and un responsive in a snaffle, other than snaffles we have running gags or American gags and a tom thumb...
If a horse was in low grade pain most of the time could this be a reason for them not to hold condition well?
Not exactly poor but on the slimmer side and not really gaining any weight even though being fed well. Teeth are OK.
Just wondering if anybody has successfully treated stringhalt through supplementation please.
Ps I'm not sure you can but happy to be proved wrong.
It's a debate between few people atm.
Just a quick question, we've got a lame horse where I'm working, was initially a foot abcess, to the point where he was on 3 legs! (I've never seen a horse so lame in 20yrs+ of being around them)
He's gradually got better (about 10 weeks since first lame)
But is still clearly lame in...
I have always been keen to give point to point a go but just never had the opportunity.
I'm wondering now if I'm a bit to old to be trying it for the first time, I'm 31.
Any thoughts or opinions?
Has anybody used the above site before?
I am off traveling in 6 weeks and need to sort something out for my gelding but don't want to sell him, problem being he is currently turned away due to work commitments so probably not going to be the easiest to loan out.
I put an add on the above site...
This has been done to death i think.
But any recommendations?
Ideally like something that cover bum but not much longer than that.
And also has a draw cord waist.
Must be waterproof I work on a yard so need to stay dry.
Just wondering how much ground work people do, mainly before the backing process, but all opinions greatly received.
I appreciate there is no hard and fast rule and everyone has their own ways/ideas but just interested to hear theses.
I know this has probably been done to death but I've been looking back through old posts and you can no longer see a lot of the photos.
Just wondering if people could post before and after pictures of there horses.
Be that from youngster to adult or before and after backing and...
