    can anyone recommend an effective calmer?

    Can anyone recommend a calmer for occasional use for my horse who is generally fine at home but gets really excited and wound up at shows? I'm reluctant to add a supplement to his feed as he's fine at home so was thinking one of the single syringes, or would i be better adding it to his feed...

    Changing farrier after 10yrs :(

    have been in the same situation as you. Tried to speak to farrier several times but things didn't improve. He had been coming to us for 20 odd years and I felt terrible about getting another farrier. Having got another one who does a brilliant job i wish I had changed when I noticed that there...

    do dealers budge on prices or are they set?

    IMO there's no harm in asking. I have bought from 2 different dealers and got £300 knocked off one horse but only £50 off the other. He did deliver him for free though.

    Made to measure bridle/ half cob half full with a budget . Help please

    My Sabre bridles have cob and full parts to them, my saddler sold them separately, as does the website. I've had one of them for over 10 years and it still looks great. Bought the other a few weeks ago. It was around the £75 mark without reins. Would highly recommend them- great quality.

    Can I pick your brains on insurers please?

    KBIS all the way! They have been great with me, have had two pretty big pay outs with no problems at all and they certainly weren't the most expensive.

    Just had vet out....pony was having acute asthma

    My horse was diagnosed with asthma about 18 months ago. It is controlled effectively with an inhaler. The inhaler that we use covers the entire muzzle then the spacer is attached to the front. My horse adapted very well to this (with the help of a treat as the inhaler goes on!) and as said...

    A few questions for those who muck out before work

    I muck out before work. I find that tucking my (long) hair into a hat stops it from smelling horsey.

    Trailer, single or double?

    This^^^ I love that my single trailer is not wider that the car. I have the Ifor single (40 something- can never remember!) and bought it new in 2010. More room inside them is also handy as you can move around the horse more easily. Highly recommended! :)

    Private paddock and stables - how much would you pay?

    Up until recently my friend paid 100 per month on a similar place in Cheshire. It included stable, water, grazing but no electricity. There was another livery on there too so it wasn't just 'hers'.

    LOAN? SELL? Overwhelmed money, time, family please advise

    I'm a teacher too and find the job demanding, though I don't have children to consider so have more time for the horse. I do think it'd be a shame to sell him, and as you said before that you couldn't cope with not having him, to me selling isn't an option. I know it's difficult finding...

    Morbid Q - What do you do with The Body?

    I had my old girl pts after she broke her leg in the field. I had her cremated individually and got her ashes back in a lovely box which is now on the shelf in the living room! It cost about £350 I think but I'm stupidly sentimental and the 'service' provided was excellent. They collected the...
