    Knee support recommendations?

    See a physio, maybe targeted exercise will help. At the very least they will recommend an appropriate support if needed. ETA like Mijods, another ‘inside out’ suggestion.

    Riding Everyday - Too much?

    Sounds pretty much like my routine. If we do more than usual he might have the next day off, but otherwise I ride most days.

    So - If horse riding was banned......

    She is not in charge of this country. We elect a government (good or bad) to do that.

    So - If horse riding was banned......

    If you don’t have your own land, where would you keep your horse. Surely livery yards would no longer exist?

    So - If horse riding was banned......

    I wouldn’t keep a horse if I couldn’t ride.

    Loans and permanent injuries

    Unless there is a contract in place which sets out who is responsible for what, l think the owner would have to accept that it is their responsibility to deal with the consequences.

    Parking charges.

    We have a country park near us that has recently introduced similar charges. So now people park all along the narrow road through the middle. It’s a wildlife trust park, not council, so I do see they have to raise money somehow, but it’s not ideal.

    No. I was pointing out there are more reasons than commodity or pet for owning a horse. Who knows what your reasons are.

    Dressage Diagrams not allowing me in!

    I just checked my account, haven’t used it in 3 years or more. Works ok for me, I can still see my portfolio.

    There’s a huge space between commodity and pet. Plenty of reasons for owning a horse.

    At what point do you accept your horse/pony is just too old to do what you want it to do?

    I agree it’s hard for liveries. It’s easy to say ‘chuck him out and let him end his years in the field’ if you own such fields. Otherwise it is usually give up riding altogether as few can afford livery for 2. Some people have the resources to retire, others see their horses as pets, which is...

    Body protectors… who wears them

    I used to wear one all the time. Now I don’t. Most bad things happen to other bits of the body. I can see why eventers wear one, Or anyone who jumps maybe, but I don’t. ETA maybe I’m biased, as I’ve broken all 4 limbs - a bp has never helped.

    This must affect someone here.

    There’s a new estate near near called ‘Fieldfare Meadow’. As you say, final insult. Locals will use the current residents in their campaigns, another local one - Save our Swallows, then end up forever looking at houses and no *insert missing wildlife here*

    Dog poo - National Trust

    Good. Although irresponsible dog owners will ignore this and carry on as usual. They already know they should pick up 🤷🏻‍♀️

    Hadn’t thought of that - much simpler than my usual method a la Little_critter (which I usually can’t be bothered to do!)

    3.5 convertion log book change

    I thought that my 3.5 would change to horsebox, but apparently they stay as ‘panel van’. Can’t remember the ins and outs, but it is still registered as a panel van. I haven’t had any issues.

    Safety stirrups

    I’m investing in new stirrups following a nasty accident resulting in a broken foot. I’m looking at the Acavalo Alupro after reading this thread, but wonder if someone can tell me if they will work with Bates Webber’s leathers? The hole looks like it might be a bit of a tight fit.
