    What to do when you know you and your horse are just not suited

    I don't have an instructor as such but my YM who is very experienced and has helped me out in the past has (after being told to be brutally honest) told me that in her honest opinion that we are just not suited.

    Hi, Haven't posted for ages but I come seeking advice....... I bought my horse 3 years ago as a 4 year old. Long story short. He came from a dealer as an exchange. I never would have chosen a youngster and had originally got an older horse but after that not working out and HuuuuuuGGGGEEEE...

    More energy needed by LGL??? change/add to feed?

    I was in the same boat as you, wanting energy but not calories. I use NAF EnerG and it seems to give something extra but without causing sillyness. I take it there is nothing physically wrong. We ran bloods first just to check there wasn't a reason he was so lethargic. Good luck

    I have had an osteopath out today who has found a problem with a ligament in my boys back. She has suggested giving him Manganese but I can't seem to find it on the net and wondered if anyone gives this, how much you give and where to you buy it from. Many thanks

    Feeding Hay and Straw

    Our little Section A used to have hay and straw mixed as he just looks at food and gets fat! He had approx 2/3rds straw 1/3 hay. Steaming hay doesn't reduce the goodness in it thats why its been designed to get rid of the dust without the good bits :) You could always soak your hay for 24...

    BHS Stage 2

    You have to have completed all off Stage 1 to do all of Stage 2. I believe you can take just the care section of the next stage up, but only after you complete the whole previous stage. Clear as mud? :) So in answer you need to do Stage 1 first
