    Price for schooling?

    Depends upon the standard of your dressage rider. I pay £45 per session, either teaching my daughter or trainer riding the pony, and this is a discounted rate as I negotiated a rate to take into account I would have her twice weekly. My current trainer is a List 4 judge competing up to PSG. Have...

The ride is so much better than our old Ifor Williams and the trailer sits firmly on the road and is an awful lot quieter, no major rattles or...

The walk way alongside the main arena is closed off, so both arenas run equally well, no huge scarey banners or flags. Ran completely to time, free tea and coffee vouchers for riders and...

    Is a bad loader always a bad loader?

    It will get better - honestly! My mare (chestnut) will load under her terms only, which is :- a) lots of time if you are running late I can assure you she will obstinately refuse to co operate until she is ready to go in. Will not load easily if we are under time pressure. b) she establishes...

    Cameras for Ifor Williams trailer recommendations

    We bought a brand new Ifor 511 some 6 weeks ago, and purchased the recommended Ifor camera, which was fitted by the Ifor Williams dealer. Excellent camera, easy to use, and night time vision exceptionally good too. Would highly recommend. Hope this helps.

    In need of some feed advice please!

    Have you considered Dengie Healthy Tummy, contains Protexin, very low in sugar and is a fibre feed. Specifically designed for ulcer prone horses and I used very successfully on a pony which got easily bloated from grass, very gassy and often coliced.

    Hi, I don't know anything about Thunderbrook Feeds, but having dealt with a pony that regularly suffered from colic episodes, I turned to Dengie Happy Tummy and DH's Fast Fibre.

    Working with a nervy rescue pony

    Hello, I only want to warn that I did something very similar to you re bitting, with a rescued Dartmoor pony who was only 3 years old at the time.
