    Michael Whitaker may be banned from riding in Olympics

    Wait so Amy Tryon, whose thoughtless action led to the death of a horse, gets a very short ban, yet Michael Whitaker gets a fine, and is banned from the Olympics FOR LIFE, due to his horse being given the wrong feed, in a one-off mistake by his groom?? Doesn't seem to add up to me.

    Kissing Spine

    Hi, just wanted to ask some questions about kissing spine, as a friend has just had his mare diagnosed with it. The horse is in her early teens, and hasn't the best conformation in her back (slightly sunken back and also slight roach back) but has never had any problems before. What is the...

    Marcus the Sheep - Discuss...

    I'm all for letting kids know where their food comes from, but to describe how he was going to be butchered and taking the children on a 'last visit' to see him is unreasonably harsh, and the headteacher does sound a bit crazy. I think it is a good thing to be taught about farming and meat at a...

    I'm cross - A Rant!

    I've noticed this! I was at an indoor SJ a little while ago, and it was mostly beginners or tiny kids in the early classes which started from about 1'. Anyways, someone on a massive and very obviously experienced warmblood had entered all the classes from about 1'6 and up. They were about 23...

    AQH's and Western Riding.

    I've heard that sliding stops can be quite damaging, especially as they break AQHAs in much younger then most. I think that's probably only if they're not conditioned properly, though? Or if they over-do it on a not fully developed horse. I've seen vids on reining and it looks AMAZING. Like...

    Some of my photos... Do you think people would pay? =P

    I doubt it... But ohwell xP Basically, I've just started AS levels and have too much school work to get a proper job... And I've completely run out of money...

    Thanks! Could get some overalls tomorrow.. All the yards in the 'valley' are accessed by the same small lane, so the straw should be quite effective.

    Strangles!! :S

    Okay, thankyou! Only problem is we don't have enough stables per horses? We should have enough haylage to last a couple of months, what about cars and clothes and things like that? Can it be carried on wheels? And can we have our horses tested to catch it early if they are infected? Will phone...

    Strangles!! :S

    A yard VERY local to us has had a horse come down with strangles... They are literally across the lane from our fields, and horses from a yard who has contact with them have been using our arena... What should we do? Thanks!
