Used to love these rugs and gutted that I sold my old one!
Can anyone reccomend something similar? Looking for a rug for winter travelling and post exercise or bathing so must have good wicking properties. Ive found the giraffe version on eBay but looks like it might be a lot thinner?
Judges really don't care if tack is brown or black as long as the rest of it is correct!
Adults should be shown in doubles or Pelhams with two reins inhand but for a local show a smart plain caves son bridle with a set of reins will be fine.
You have a year from when the problem was first noted on the record in order to get any tests or treatment claimed through the insurance.
If you're covered I would bone scan her now. You may still end up turnning her away but you won't have the option of insurance cover if you turn her away...
If it's a newly acquired thing I would be concerns about mycoplasma arthritis that is now causing tendon slip (mixed practice vet here). If that is the case antibiotics needed asap but potentially untreatable.
I've recently purchased a 3.5T Nissan conversion.
It was converted 6m ago but only in a basic way so plenty of scope to individualise as I want it. I always travel my boy with a haynet but the horse area opens into the grooms area at the back, with the saddle racks on the back doors as per...
We were discussing that the other day cundle green, that the marks seem to be lower. Maybe its just the standard of horses coming forward, but also the mark sheets have changed alot this year, with much fewer categories of marks. I do think the vetting has been much more thorough this year which...
If county shows up and down the country can release judges names months in advance (as entries for some do close ridiculously early!) surely the BEF can? We all know that illness/accidents do happen so last minute judges changes can occur, but surely what harm is there in releasing the names?
For sports horse class an inhand bridle is prob best. You may find you prefer to use a simple snaffle as opposed to an inhand bit seeing as she's an older baby just in case you do need the extra control.
You're outfit sounds fine... is the class under Sport Horse (GB) rules? in which case you...
That last bit made me giggle cruiseline!
It is not a rule to show 3yo hunters in double reins (Pelham/double) its just done. Like its not a rule to use quartermarks.. its just done as it enhances the over picture.
Our 3yo's have always been introduced slowly to the pelham at home before...
We use simple pelhams on our 3yo hunters as opposed to full double bridles.
Under sports horse GB rules no sports horse in any sports horse class should be in any bit other than a snaffle. Horses have been sent out the ring at the National show in the past because of it.
Our first one was born this week.
Lovely little colt by Lauriston (Latus I x Granit) out of a Bandmaster mare.
(pics are huge so i'l link!) Called Roly!
Don't completly rule out bitting him though, ours all wear the little black nylon bits from yearlings upwards. Once they're in a show environment you might find you need a bit more control, especially the slightly bigger ones!
From the sound of her i don't think you'd go far wrong putting her in the jumping section. As far as i know the evaluators can change the section (With your approval) if they feel she is best suited elsewhere.
We'll see you at Plumpton if you're going this year!
With regards to advice, post...
