    My first attempt at Sidesaddle

    Well seeing as I have the week off, yesterday I had my first sidesaddle lesson. It's something that I have been meaning to do for ages, and I really enjoyed it. Will definately be going back for more. I hadn't ridden for a few months due to varoius reasons, so really need to get myself riding...

    Livery in South Warwickshire

    I did put this in NL but was looking for a few more suggestions, as I have tried some of the yards and they don't currently have vacancies, so any more ideas would be good. Below is the post I initially did: I know I've asked this before, but events overtook us (job changes,1 horse having...

    So what would YOU feed my horses?

    Just interested really in the perspective of others ? Have had the same sort of feeding habits for years, so how would you feed these two beasties ? 12 year old Belgian warm blood, up to now been a good doer, chunky build 15.3, can be lazy to ride but spooky too and spins fast when the mood...

    Well 9 months after the operation, the keratoma is back- What now ??

    Am pretty gutted. Last year when my little horse went lame, after a bit of going forwards and backwards to the vet, a not very obvious keratoma was discovered. The vet was pretty positive that an operation would have a good outcome. Op was done and all aftercare, changing of dressings, bar shoe...

    TWO insurance claims on the go !!

    What a nightmare, as if one wasn't pain enough. One with NFU and one with E&L. Let's see who wins for customer service, and actually settling the claim ??. Have already had a slightly snotty email from one of them.

    Saddle- How much ?

    The person who is hoping to buy my horse (fingers crossed), has asked about buying the dressage saddle too. We hadn't planned this originally, so I hadn't given price much thought, however seeing as it was fitted for him and I have it regularly checked, it would probably be best to let him go...

    Update on my broken loan horse

    Following on from yesterdays thread. I got up to yard last night and found all his kit dumped on floor outside tack room, and horse in stable where he had been all day with no hay/feed. Suppose it saved me the job of asking ending the loan.

    Horse has been on loan 2 months and is now broken.

    I'm quite worried about him, but also a bit cross with the loaner. He went on loan to someone on the same yard 2 months ago. I had been thinking of selling him, but when she lost her horse decided to let him go on loan. There was some quibbling about loan agreement as she didn't want...

    I just fancied going to some local shows this year, but have no ideas what classes I could do with my cob type. Used to doing veterans, arabs and palominos, so this is new to me. Any advice ?

    OMG, I Am Such An IDIOT...My poor horse !

    I am sooo stupid, and feel really bad/guilty. I decided to beautify my cob tonight, and also have a gently gently go at some spraying, which he is worried about (all sprays, fly, mane and tail etc). Anyway, as is typical, an audience always appears when something may happen!. As it was, he was...

    What is wrong with my Cob ?

    Prob should be in Vet bit, but more folk in here. Noticed in the week before New Year that my cob was looking lame behind, resting nearside hoof more than normal. He had had shoes done about 3 days previously. We watched it for a few days, then with no change popped him up to vets. Now before...

    Oh Great.......

    Ludo now has a virus to go with his banana shaped leg. It was just one of those 'you know it's going to be one of those days' moments, early morning call from yard to say he had laboured breathing. There has been a cough/sniffles going round the yard. Proper poorly boy face for the vet, so now...

    My friend saw a poor horse die at roadside yesterday.

    My friend got stuck behind the hunt on some narrow back lanes yesterday. She saw a horse at the back that seemed to be struggling, it was trying to canter up the road but kept going disunited behind, and was dropping behind the others, but being kicked on by it's young rider. It then stopped...

    What do we think he is, and what show classes ?

    Lloyd arrived last year, passport says 'cob type', and this is what he looks like to me (bearing in mind my first 'cob type' experience), so I am wondering what everyone else thinks about what could be in there ?, and also if I decided to do some shows (maybe), what could he do ? My showing has...

    Dilemma...what to do ?

    It's a long, and a bit complicated one, so get comfy. Last year my friend decided to sell her horse as she wasn't getting on with him, and was going to take one of mine on loan, as we are on the same yard. Then she changed her mind about selling so I decided was going to have to put mine up...
