    Lee Pearson

    Right, let me think. Lee has won 9 Gold Paralympic medals, has won six world championships and 3 European titles. He has to be able to comunicate to his horses through the slighests movements and feel. I have a sneaky feeling he might be able to offer us all a little help. :D I've never...

    Lungeing advice - Trot to Walk

    I've changed to lunging with 2 reins and it has made a huge difference. I can do a whole mix of in hand, lunging and long reining with 2 reins, that I just can't do with 1 rein. I find my 2 are far more relaxed, listen more and work so much better with 2 reins.

    Eeeeek, a 'HOW MUCH'!

    Thank you FarrierLover, I think you are right; I am negative about both of our abilities. We both could do a lot better! lol I have some small jumps at home, so I can build up her fitness and lunge her over those. I'm sure there are a couple of my friends that could jump her too. Injury...

    Eeeeek, a 'HOW MUCH'!

    Ha, ha I wouldn't say 'talent' for low level dressage / sj'ing. She hasn't done any jumping with me for 3 yrs, so I'd never think of her as a jumper. I couldn't guarentee to someone that she could do it either. I certainly know she is big enough to step over most small jumps lol (don't think...

    best way to wash waterproof jacket?

    I chuck mine in the washing machine on a normal wash, with washing powder/liquid. I then give them an extra rinse and then wash them with the with the horses 'Rug Proof' stuff. Never had a problem with it and have even used it on non waterproof jackets to give them some protection.

    Eeeeek, a 'HOW MUCH'!

    She is sound and at the moment there is nothing to suggest she won't stay that way. The farrier is due tomorrow and then it will be back to us both bringing our fitness levels and work load up (I'm sure she will fitten up a lot quicker than I will. A year of no riding has taken it's toll on me...

    Eeeeek, a 'HOW MUCH'!

    Her accident was this time last year, after her initial treatment from the vets to ward off any possible infection and to treat the cellulitis in her hind, she has been given time to rest and heal. She has been sound for a good 8-10 months. I have only had one problem recently and that has been...

    Eeeeek, a 'HOW MUCH'!

    Thank you, again I wasn't thinking of anywhere near that amount (over £1k less), not because of her age, but because of her injury and the fact that she needs to do more work to prove that she will remain sound.

    Eeeeek, a 'HOW MUCH'!

    I guess it all depends what you are looking to buy and what for. If for example you were looking for something to bring on and compete, then yes; at 12 she is not the right sort of horse. You would want massive amounts of reports and winnings. But, I would never look at '12' and think...

    Eeeeek, a 'HOW MUCH'!

    Forgot the foal bit. She was with her breeder until she was 4. Broken at 3.5yrs and sold to her previous owner at 4. They never bred a foal from her, but I honestly don't know if she had one while with the breeder (I think she would have been too young). I certainly think she was kept...

    Eeeeek, a 'HOW MUCH'!

    Thank you. I'll have a look at the ID website (I hadn't thought of that one). I've been looking at all the normal sales sites, but couldn't determin what was an average price, hence coming on here. She isn't a bog standard 14.2 - 15.5hh sort of horse. Anyone could get on and ride her. I...

    Eeeeek, a 'HOW MUCH'!

    Blimey, she is on the expensive side then. I am going to do her saddle by seperate negotiation, as it is a Sue Carson one and maybe not everyone would want a Flair dressage saddle. I have a collection of turnout rugs that can go too.

    Eeeeek, a 'HOW MUCH'!

    Thank you, I wasn't thinking anywhere near that sort of money. But, yes it all helps. Does she have her advertised with tack and rugs too?

    Eeeeek, a 'HOW MUCH'!

    Thank you! I will take that as a huge compliment with all your knowledge and stunning boy! :) Sadly, she isn't worth that sort of money, but never the less, she is more than capable of Riding Club stuff, hacking or a broodmare. She has never hunted or jumped solid fences as far as I...

    Anyone who employs a cleaner???

    I am a cleaner and have my own little cleaning and ironing business. (not the field I am trained in, but I do it to pay the bills and support my kids) I charge £10/hr for cleaning and ironing and have a waiting list for myself and the girls that work for me. I live in rural Staffordshire...

    Eeeeek, a 'HOW MUCH'!

    All the riding I have done with her has been at Riding Club level and there is no reason why she can't continue with it now. Anyone could get on her and plod around. She never feels her size and doesn't use it against you. She can be lazy and likes to lean on your hands when schooing, but...

    I'm in a bit of a muddle really and came on here for some help. I spotted the 'sticky' at the top about 'how much' posts and had a little panic. Having read it, I think I am ok to ask you all for some help. I have received the devestating news that I am to loose the land I rent. :mad...

    Tailbags

    I have just been on TailGator's website to order my tail bags and mane bags, as a friend had recommended them for our cob. I am gutted that they are not doing the mane bags anymore!!!! I wish I had ordered them when my friend first told me to use them. Anyone know of anyone else that does...

    Large Wheelbarrow - who sells the cheapest?

    Peniless - I think you are talking about JFC barrows. I used the one on the Estate here yesterday and I think it is a huge 500lts. They do smaller 255lts ones too. Neither of which are cheap.

    KBIS horse insurance

    I've just insured my 2yr old with them. I read through their quote and noticed that if he was a colt and then gelded, his policy would be cancelled. As I bought him as a colt and knew I was going to geld him I was worried that he then wouldn't be insured. So, I called them and they were fab...

    thinking of friend tonight, hard day tomorrow

    Fatpiggy, you have hit the nail on the head totally! Despite the body slowly starting to slip, the mind and sole was still very much 'Jerry'. Today has been a beautiful sunny day, but I was aware that these days wouldn't last wrong until the mud, rain, winds and ice appear. Thank you all for...
