    Haslemere/Midhurst area Livery wanted

    I seem to be looking for the impossible. Ideally I'm looking for DIY/assisted/part livery with AYTO, a well surfaced arena, access to decent hacking and parking for a small lorry. Anyone know of any hidden gems within 15-30 minutes of Fernhurst?

    any Solicitors on here

    Wouldn't it just be easier to have new liveries to pay a months rent as deposit in advance? Any livery yard I've been on I've had to pay 2 months up front then when you give notice you have a month paid in hand so if you choose to go early you just lose your deposit

    Searching for livery yards surrey/london

    Don't know if it's too far but Thundry Farm is just off A3 at Elstead. Has indoor school so doesn't freeze, is run by a BS coach and 8ncludes lessons in livery. Fabulous hacking in area but possibly not huge amounts of turn out

    Before I go ahead, am I being fair enough?

    I'd say if you haven't signed an agreement then you probably wouldn't have to pat anything. However I think morally and to keep future options open then one months livery/rent is an acceptable and fair payment

    Been left with a saddle I haven't paid for- advice please!

    It's possible that she's just been busy at the time of the messages/otherwise occupied and forgets to get back to you later. have you actually tried phoning her to see if you get an answer?

    Towing - Kia Sorrento

    The weight a sorrento can tow will vary depending on year and whether diesel or petrol, manual or auto. It's actively the older manual diesels that had the best towing weight (2800kg from memory) newer ones are 2500kg I think so still ok for a trailer with 2 reasonable sized horses. I had both...

    Showing/competiting alone, tips?

    I always compete on my own but I'm lucky enough to have a saint of a horse who I can leave on lorry/trailer while I collect numbet/go to loo/eat etc. However I do always put a note on entry form that I'm alone with emergency contact. also plan to put laminated contact sheet on lorry...

    Would you take the money?

    It would a little bit depend whether she was in your room or you were in hers or if it was neutral ground (although this might not be logical to others!) If she's offered a number of times I might be tempted to take a small contribution as it might make her feel better even though you knew he...

    Kia Sorento 2.2

    I had an old one (04 reg) which was fabulous for towing) I upgraded to a newer one (2011) model which doesn't have quite as much umph but still happily pulled my trailer with 2 horses on board so about the weight you're looking at. It's got much more spec than old one so I actually enjoy driving...

    Premier Equine - Is It Worth Complaining?

    My friend always raves about PE rugs but I find them incredibly heavy and nothing special. I bought my horse a Masts this winter that has interchangeable liners and it's been great.

    Schooling livery - something just doesn't feel right...

    Even the excuse for you not to go on saturday seems suspicious to me (I'm very cynical! ) surely even if she was out competing there would be someone on a professional yard doing the other horses that could allow you access to your own horse. Personally I wouldn't make excuses I'd just...

    horsebox sharing agreement

    Does anyone have a sample agreement/contract for a horsebox share? We have discussed all the pros and cons and have the advantage of being sensible ladies of a certain age with similar values so pretty sure we can make it work, but would like a written agreement to save any possible disputes...

    Irrational fear of oxers

    Firstly - you are not alone, a back rail on anything brings me out in a cold sweat!! If you're having a lesson make sure you tell your instructor as that is the point of them. Don't think you'll feel stupid, they need to know what you worry about and so how to approach it. Then I just try to...

    Anyone tow with a Kia Sorento?

    I had an 04 manual. Brilliant car for towing. Loved it. Now got a newer model which has more mod cons for everyday driving but has got the same guts for towing.

    TREC and how to get into it

    The winter series should be ok to watch...from my experience most people only too happy to talk you through what's going on (there's an explanation of the requirements for all of the possible obstacles in the rule book) obviously the orienteering bit of summer comps ia not spectator friendly as...

    TREC and how to get into it

    Also tack wise it's quite unrestrictive...a variety of conventional, western, treeless.. more or less anything goes as long as it's safe. All sorts of people and horses. I do it on my TB who now can't event any more and you see cobs, heavies, Icelandic ponies, Arabs and everything in between ☺

    TREC and how to get into it

    They have all the dates for competitions and training and the rulebook available on the Trecgb website. Basically over winter they have indoor competitions involving an obstacle course and control of paces (fast walk slow canter). In the summer the 'full' competitions involve the above 2 phases...

    Living out 24/7

    My TB now lives out 24/7. I was really worried his first winter out but he was absolutely happy as Larry. One field where he's stabled has a shelter, the other only has natural hedge/tree fence line. I've only ever seen him in the made shelter in the summer avoiding the flies. In the wet windy...

    Not clicking with new horse

    It'll happen. I was quite indifferent to my current horse when I first got him. He did the job but I didn't feel he had a personality like my previous one. Now I wouldn't part with him for all the tea in China.
