    Just so I can steel myself for the upcoming bill. Would anyone know the average cost of a back scan? There's something up with my boy.

    Muscle wastage/atrophy

    Hi guys, So, I've had the physio out for my boy and there is a ton of atrophy from where his saddle fitted so poorly before and although she was great with giving me a few excersises to work on from the ground, which I've been doing, and lunging; what else can I do to help him gain that...

    Mounting Block issues

    Hi there guys. I've just bought some new stirrup leathers...which are too short to ground-mount from, so I've got to start at the mounting block...which would be great, on any horse apart from mine. He's terrified of the mounting block, or at the very least acts terrified of it. I...

    Changing direction on the lunge...

    Hihi, It's a really simple title and sounds a bit silly, but; I lunge in a cavesson or rope headcollar usually, and I've seen people be able to ask a horse to change direction just by stepping in front of the shoulder or holding out the lunge whip and its something I'd really like to teach my...

    Keeping your leg in the right position...

    Hi guys, me again >.< So, problem 99 & 100 out of 283128937 99. I can't seem to keep my leg in the right position, after I apply it. Would knee rolls in my saddle help with this? My saddle is currently a Wintec 2000, which I'm slowly starting to hate, and I'm getting the gullet changed...

    Best way of getting my horse fit?

    Hi guys, me again. So, I've just got myself a new body protector after what could have been 3 very serious falls and I'm ready to get back into the saddle, I'm healed and out of pain and Chase is showing signs of wanting to do more than just hacking out. My goal: Low-level clear round...

    Time to step up the work.

    So, my 15yo horse has just let me know that he's ready to do more than just hacking out. I've had him for just over 6 months and I'm looking to start doing low levelled Dressage with him and clear round jumping, but small jumps for the minute. I'm not ready for anything more. Now, I can walk...

    Loosing Hope with myself...

    So, I've fallen off twice in 48hrs and yes, I've been to A&E, and I now can't ride for a week. The lack of riding isn't too bad, gives me a chance to build up a relationship with my boy again, but what's got me is how discouraged I feel. I really wanted to do some unaffiliated Dressage and...

    Brown on Bay

    Alright you lot! Let's have a look at your bay boys and girls in brown tack. I'd really like to change my boys' tack to brown, as black almost drains the colour from him. I'd like to see what it looks like :D

    Stopping my horse from napping and getting him listening

    Heya guys. I've got a 15yo KWPN gelding whom I bought 6 months ago and have had to re-back and desensitise him. Now that's all done, I've run into another problem. Getting him to listen when we're on our own. Both in the school and out hacking. He naps and generally doesn't listen to be my...
