    Heart is broken 💔

    On Monday I lost my beautiful mare to laminitis. Onset was sudden - she was galloping and playing with field mates the evening before she came out of her stable presenting as laminitic on the morning of 1st December. Initially she responded to anti inflammatory injections and meloxicam and...

    Covid redundancy

    Hi - anyone else made redundant due to Covid 19? I lost my lovely job in an Early Years Setting due to new staff to child ratios and a future policy of not taking in children under 2. This will result in a significant cut in numbers when the service reopens. Staff were cut from 13 down to 5...

    Just started to watch the box set I bought on Ebay. The theme tune alone took me right back to my 16 year old days in 1979 when I eagerly awaited each episode 😆 I'm sure it's horribly dated but will while away a few hours 😅

    Threads with no vipers

    Are there any? I'm getting so pi$$ed off with the endless needless petty squabbling and point scoring on here by some posters - so many threads seem to be turning unecessarily nasty these days. If anyone can point me in the direction of a thread with none I'd be very grateful. Stay safe and...

    Long reining established horse

    Since I've decided to stop riding for the duration I'm looking to vary the way I'm exercising my mare. Even though I'm mixing up the lunging ( no gadgets) pole work - low jumps - changing rein - lunging down long sides of large arena etc. I can see this getting repetitive after a while so I was...

    When was your last lesson?

    For me - 3 years if I remember rightly 🤔 I'm super critical of my riding and am always reading/researching & my horse seems to be coming on nicely - we don't compete but she's working well over her back & into a genuine contact. We school and lunge once or twice a week - hack out on the...

    Standing martingale 😯

    So - madam has been a right madam lately during fast work - flinging head all over the place (not tack or teeth related) just fit giddy & loving life. Running martingale not making enough of a difference & winding her up more I think - I was in danger of getting socked in the teeth so I put it...

    Fly rugs - apologies for a rug thread 😆

    This nice weather has me thinking ahead 😎 Looking for recommendations please for fly rugs that definitely won't rub sensitive horse's shoulders - have tried Gallop Masta & Amigo with no luck even though the rugs were lined 🙄 I don't mind shelling out for an expensive one if I know it's...
