    Hmmm just remembered why I don't come on here much anymore

    Some little busy body pressed the button on my post in 'Show us your competition horses' on the grounds that these were professional photos, i now have an infraction! The fact that I have full permission to use the one, admittedly professional photo, is not the point, nor it seems the fact...

    Police shoot horses

    This is in latest news but does not seem to be generating the usual interest. Warning, there is an eyewitness account that is truly harrowing, apparently one of the horses was shot 19 times :( Truly truly horrific and there seems to be a press shutdown...

    Would someone lunge a 2yo in a pessoa and then complain loudly that he bronks when she rides him - dear God the mind boggles at the complete and utter stupidity

    Health and Safety gone too far?

    This may be a little contentious but I am absolutely amazed at the number of adults wearing body protectors for a walk/trot test! Now if they were on scatty youngsters then I could perhaps understand this, but no, the majority are on sensible looking horses (who look half asleep actually). If...

    Lluna's first competition *Pics*

    Took the Bigbird to BAPSH at Hartpury, her first competition! I was so pleased with her in the dressage warm up, despite never having been in a warm up, especially with stallions, she was really very good and handled it brilliantly. Had a couple of big spooks in the actual test which gained...

    Riding Schools/Mechanical Horses

    After watching some lessons recently, I cannot help but think that Riding Schools these days are pushing people out of their capability zones. I saw riders bouncing around on backs and socking horses in the teeth whilst simultanously banging away with their legs - it upsets me tbh :(...

    Is Parelli bad for the brain?

    All the 'Parelli' people I meet seem to be a little 'soft' in the brain tbh, is it all that quality time with carrot sticks and green bouncing balls or what? I would love someone to explain it to me - in simple terms please :cool:

    Another Animal Communicator reading

    Lluna's reading came back - these are the photos I sent: Well I love that you pick such characters Gill, because this is one strong minded individual, I don’t want to go back to your other reading, in case the photos energy confuses me, but this mare feels strong, stubborn and...

    Just got off the phone to my friend, her favourite PRE mare has just lost her foal :( The mare had gone 390 days and went into labour last Wednesday, she managed to expel the head but no feet visible so the vet was called, it took them one and a half hours to get the foal out as they had...
