    Whip/crop/stick - Outdated or legitimate aid?

    Yes it is tricky isn't it. I can see the place for it in saving a situation sometimes, as said above - shying into traffic eg or stopping backing into something dangerous. But out hacking on ponies I knew, my loan pony or my own, I never carried one. I really don't think it would have helped...

    Looking for the impossible

    Juliet Clarke a dealer near Pershore has a forward going hacking cob. I don't know her personally, but I follow her on facebook because I enjoy her videos. She seems to have a lot of satisfied customers

    Horse frightened of tractors

    Oh yes Julia my pony who was very good in traffic of any sort (slightly less so with rubbish in the hedge but not too bad) was absolutely terrified when we once met a horse being driven.

    I’m not sure what to think….

    I’m not sure what to think….

    That clip seems so at odds with how he came across. He seemed so laid back and relaxed. He looks a bit demented in that clip - in the sense that he has lost it.

    Rocking Horses

    We had to sell a Haddon rocking horse lately at auction - not an antique - probably made and bought in 1980s. Sold for about £270 I think, was in pretty good condition and could be ridden by a small adult.

    Janet George RIP

    I was very sad to hear this. She was very generous with her time and knowledge and I loved her comments about the horses she had bred.

    HOYS - Showing the world that a lame and obese pony can be a champion

    They obviously have a pretty good partnership. If he can win at working hunter with a larger rider good on him and her.

    Should I hit the panic button?

    I think you need to take some time out to grieve for Gypsum. You couldn't because you had to handle the immediate crisis. Could you now?

    Pushy parents

    You are far from Cruella, Gingerwitch. I have been annoyed on your behalf by the presumption of these parents, who seem to have taken your kindness in taking their child out as a right.

    Do I have grounds for a refund?

    There is a lot to look at here and you need specialist equine legal advice. Possible avenues - mis rep (it's a long time since I studied this but I think anyone can misrep - if the seller knowingly misrepresents it is fraud whether dealer or not). That may nor may not be undermined by you...
