    Does this sound hormonal behaviour?

    Another one here whose mare needs regumate through the summer. Sudden onset of symptoms including putting her back up when ridden, striking out, generally angry and uncomfortable to be groomed,etc etc. Regumate=happy Lula. :)

    Rider nerves- any tips?

    Thank you all for your words of encouragement. I end up hating myself and thinking that I don't deserve to be riding my horse- she's five and shows great promise when I ride her properly. Spoke to a friend last night who admitted to taking a glut of port before a test so may give that a go!:D

    Rider nerves- any tips?

    As title, really. In lessons and at home I ride well and my horse goes brilliantly. On Saturday I rode the test and actually rode it, so she was great (and I'm only talking Prelim). On Sunday in the warm up she was great so clearly I rode ok. As soon as I got into the ring I was obsessed with...

    So who has had a fear of jumping?

    A gap of twenty years and then riding my newly backed youngster= brown trousers style fear about jumping!! Got myself a great instructor who really understands me and the baby horse. Initially it was tiny jumps, her words- "It's not jumping, Rachel, it's flat work with bumps!" and "Will you get...

    Horse buying... how / when did you know you were bringing that one home?

    Was riding past local stud and saw the most beautiful coloured newby filly foal- never been a big fan of coloureds but went home and told hubby I'd just seen my future horse! Five years on and we've been on the most amazing (and expensive and frustrating) journey together. She's the best and I'm...

    What should I do?!

    Do you have a friend who could do what the professional did? If I had been the only one involved in loading training there's no way Lula would load now. I needed someone to tell me to ****** off and stop fussing when she danced around. SSSOOOO hard!!! However, now I have a horse I can load alone...

Made absolutely the right decision and...

    You just know when you've been hacking for too long by yourself......

    Lula knows all the words to Take That songs because that's what I sing when hacking alone. I alarmed a local farmer a while back, he actually popped out of the gateway to get a good luck at the care in the community case!!

    Does anybody feel physically sick before they compete...

    Went xc schooling today for the first time in twenty years (me) and first time ever (Lula)!! Felt sick as a pig, she was unwilling even to canter near the fences to start with... Cue more nerves. Soon got going though and both loved it! As the instructor said, she can jump and I can ride so...

    Broken collar bone?

    I went to see a McTimony chiropractor after falling down the stairs and dislocating the collar bone/ sternum joint. This was a year after a ditching where shoulder was dislocated so really inflamed the whole area again. Amazing results! Been twice and so much better.

    BS, ALW and Eland reports!

    Blimey, I hope we are doing as well this time next year! Well done! In the video it seems as though she is fighting you going in to fences but managing to jump brilliantly despite. She is gorgeous- mine's a coloured mare, too. How is she bred?:D
