    Tell Me About Stonar School

    I worked there (working pupil/gap student) in 2007/2008 and loved it. The girls all seemed very happy there and the horses were very well cared for. There certainly wasn't strangles when I was there but I don't know if there has been since. To be honest if a yard where horses are regularly...

    Monarch saddles

    I tend to agree with this. I dont know how much stock my saddle fitter has in second hand so am looking into what she stocks new. Bates, im not a fan of cair. Wintec, is a no go. And equipe are mega money. So monarch is possibly an option.

    Ive done this too! Althought much to my amazement I have never dismounted clipped up yet.... £18 is 2 bags of fast fibre!!!!! Im one of those naughty ones that dismounts by putting one leg over the front of the saddle, you soon unclip when your leg wont go any further.
