    Anyone stabled overnight at Munstead BE?

    Hi, just wondering if anyone has done this as we are due to do it in a fortnight and I'm wondering what the facilities are like? We've done Munstead before but not as an overnighter. Things like if we camp there can we be relatively close to the yard? Are there loos etc? Is it walking distance...

    How long until he calms down?

    Ok, couldn't think of how to word the title... I have never had a horse before whose behavior changed when he was fed up/down / put onto something new, and my feed regime for the yard is fibre fibre fibre, low sugar low starch etc. My new horse, who has been with us about 3 weeks, has turned...

    Please help me identify a piece of kit I've seen...

    I've seen a photo several times but now can't find it - it's of a horse wearing some sort of headcollar with a hard plastic half circle shaped flap/guard attached under the chin, presumably to stop chewing or something? I've done the google image search for 'anti chew, anti crib, grazing...

    If you have a horse on full livery which includes feed (basic chaff and nuts) but you want your horse on a different, more expensive regime (ie Topspec) and have to provide it yourself (fair enough), do you get a discount on the livery price for not using their feed? I ask as I have two...

    Is this rug indoor or outdoor? Help please!

    I've been given a rug - a Rambo which I haven't had before - and I don't know if it is a turnout or stable rug? No tell-tale mud on it and it's been cleaned within an inch of its life.

    As title, just wondered if anyone has tried Sumo MB? Its meant to add serious condition in a short time.
