    Orange/Yellow Pussy scabs

    Yes it sounds exactly like photosensitivity. You will need some pain relief and anti-inflamatories. Our vet gave us the name of a cream to be bought over the counter for humans, but each horse is different so I would take the vets lead on which cream. This condition will not go away unless...

    Summer Eye conditions

    It sounds a little like photosensitivity, which is a reaction to the sunrays. The vet will give you some cream to treat it and it will be imperative that he is kept out of the sun or wears a full face mask - including covering the nose. I have one who had this on her legs (quite unusal as it...

    Bellissimo M

    Bit late with this reply but we have one of Belissimo M's offspring, he is 4yro, jumps like a stag, has a GREAT walk, BIG canter and lovely active trot, fantastic nature and a pleasure to have around. He is bay and is out of a show jumping mare so the mix of dressage / sj will mean he will do...

    Dressage riders

    Hi Snowdrop If you are needing to wrap your legs around your horse, s/he isn't off your leg enough, s/he needs to know that s/he must stay in the pace until you say otherwise, with a lazy horse you much teach it to go with no leg on and a sensitive horse to go with the leg on (so it is not a...

    Heaven help me i just lost the plot.....

    Oh I don't think many argue on there, and if it wasn't for Z we may never have got Carl, Peter or Nicola on there. Weezy, you'll just have to come over to the dark side and join, go on you know you want to!

    Advice ref my livery bill pls

    When I've been on part livery I have always paid the same all year round even though my chap lives out in the summer. Normally yards balance out the winter costs and the summer costs (always lower in the summer, less labour, hay & feed because of the grass etc) and come up with an average...

    Are your horses Vaccinated? & Do you always booster?

    Having lost a horse to tetanus, and it is a horrible way to die I can assure you, it must have been 30 years ago and I can still see the look in the mares eyes, I would never risk not having it done, ever...

    I'm the same, when I did my entries recently I worked out the most comps I could do with one tank of fuel, so staying close to home but that way I keep getting the same judge all the time which I hate. When will it stop??

    Barry Swain saddles - how much?

    I can't rate Barry enough, he has always been polite and honest with me, I have two saddles, one Dr & one gp, if I couldn't have him to fit/make my saddles then Kay would be my next option. I have done a saddle fitting day with Kay and she is amazing.

    Statement from the BHS re Amersham Horses

    I have to agree with you ALL, Tia has a valid point in that she isn't being dismissive about these particular horses but is raising the point that the really issue is with the low standards that are found in the auction houses. My mother was dealer and I spent many of my childhood years in the...

    Having bought a new Elevator Bridle horses way of going is not good!

    Was the martingale coming off and the Elevator going on at the same time? I would be quite surprised if he is objecting to the bridle itself, have you changed the bit at all? Do you try working him in an outline out hacking as you do in the school? Maybe he just has a high head carriage when...

    Has anyone got the perfect horse??!!!

    [ QUOTE ] how we can hack out with no spooks, alone, load them, catch them, groom them and handle them with out any 'issues'. Ride them and they always perform fantastically, get to a show or event and they do a great round or behave impeccably! A horse that doesn't need supplements, or...

    Tying up outside others boxes

    It wouldn't worry me in the least, we have an american barn and we all tie up all over the place and we've never had any injuries or upset over it, if some one did object I would respect their space but would quietly think 'drama queen' (not suggesting any of the above are drama queens as...
