    Rider nerves- any tips?

    As title, really. In lessons and at home I ride well and my horse goes brilliantly. On Saturday I rode the test and actually rode it, so she was great (and I'm only talking Prelim). On Sunday in the warm up she was great so clearly I rode ok. As soon as I got into the ring I was obsessed with...

    Legs-rubbed or clonked?

    My white-legged, thin skinned TB is prone to hooning about doing star jumps in the field. If she's not wearing brushing boots she clonks herself and causes cuts and swellings. If she wears boots they rub. Any ideas would be gratefully received! Thanks:)

    Who'd like Horse Benefit?!

    ;);) Talking to some friends earlier... I don't have children but I do have a much loved horse. How about a campaign for horse benefit?! I can afford one but maybe if the government paid me I could have two??!! Only light hearted but a thought....;)

    Scary moment

    So we were hacking alone yesterday around the lanes, it was windy and the first time we'd been out alone for a couple of weeks. Lula stopped dead and I could feel her 'think' about whipping around. Next moment a car screeched around the corner and managed to stop about five feet from us. She was...

    First dressage test tonight- very nervous now!

    Blemish cover makeup for white legs??

    Hi, just wondered if anyone knows of a makeup I can use to cover blemishes on white legs ready for showing the week after next? I've got the powder you mix up but wanted a pen/ little brush thing to put directly over scar. Does such a thing even exist? Thanks.

    Formula 4Feet vs Pure Feeds

    Hi, I spoke to Anna at Pure Feeds yesterday, who was very helpful indeed. She did say, though, that the feeds would mean I no longer need to feed F4F. When I've stopped it before it's had a bad impact on the state of my girl's feet. Any thoughts or experience with this one, please? Thanks :)

    Formula4Feet- maintenance/ loading dose advice needed!

    I feed my TB Formula4Feet which works well. My farrier said this morning that he thinks there is a lower, maintenance level of feeding but all I can find on the website is a flat feeding rate depending on the horse's weight. Does anyone know any info on this? Thanks.

I've now put the partitions in and she will load fine but as soon as I leave her on her own she starts going up and leaping around. I am terrified that she will really hurt herself but I think my...

    KS- mesotherapy vs surgery for 3 year old?

    My almost 3 yr old has changes to one of her spiny processes - worsened over 3 months and while I haven't yet had a call from Svend I suspect, as does my vet, that he will say it needs to come out. My filly has never worked and has had intermittent bouts of lameness behind but is currently sound...
