    Heart is broken πŸ’”

    On Monday I lost my beautiful mare to laminitis. Onset was sudden - she was galloping and playing with field mates the evening before she came out of her stable presenting as laminitic on the morning of 1st December. Initially she responded to anti inflammatory injections and meloxicam and...

    Dunne v Frost

    So the reason you come up with is that he fancied her & she didn't fancy him & was joking with other jocks hence he was jealous - misogynistic much?

    Dunne v Frost

    I don't know where to start with this tbh. Really? His "bruised ego" had to be because she rejected his advances and cracked a joke with "some other jock" (male obviously) not because she's a sucessful jockey with better results and rides. Jesus wept as we might say here in Clare 😑

    Dunne v Frost

    My (male) friends who worked in the UK racing game 30 and 40 years ago are appalled that this behaviour is still being tolerated and are speaking out on social media. If those still working in the industry are not it can only mean that: a) they aren't bothered by it. or b) they feel...

    Who remembers WHS win a pony competition!

    I was convinced I'd win every year but no πŸ˜† Had to wait til I was 32 for my first horse - he was an angel of an ex racer and definitely with the wait πŸ’–

    Irish sports horse growth?

    I bought my ISH - Connie/ID/TB mare as a very scrawny 3 year old standing at 14.3. She's 11 now and a well built 15.3. Think she's finished growing πŸ€”πŸ™ƒπŸ˜…

    What is the most comfortable riding hat?

    Harry Hall seemed to be the only hats around when I started as a young 'un in the late 60s. We solved the any fitting issues (and at the same time emulated our Showjumping heroes - David Broome & Eddie Macken in my case πŸ’–πŸ’–) by cutting off the under chin elastic 😱

    What is the most comfortable riding hat?

    Are French Links Kind?

    Exactly My ISH has a small mouth with large tongue - I've tried literally every type of snaffle inc French Link and Peanut - she will tolerate a JP Korsteel curved single joint for lunging but I use ported bits for riding - Kimblewick for exciting stuff or Pelham with 2 reins for roadwork and...

    Body Protectors - Racesafe or Champion

    I have a Racesafe Provent - it's lighter more comfy and much cooler than the previous Racesafes I've owned (which were great in their own right tbf). I genuinely do forget I'm wearing it πŸ™‚ The only other type of BP I've had though was a big blocky monstrosity - think it was a Just Togs one...

    What’s the obsession with the duns and buckskin

    I'm always threatening to dye my palomino's mane & tail black to make her into a dun/bucksin - would make life so much easier πŸ™ˆ She does have a beautiful eye though 😍

    What’s the obsession with the duns and buckskin

    A fellow livery has a 15.1 dun mare by Templebready Fear Bui - she's x TB and very fiesty πŸ˜… In her day she was an amazing jumper - evented hunter trialled & had a fair few show jumping points. She's still a lively lady (now in her early twenties) and is ridden occasionally. I really can see...
