    Im in Ackworth - don't do much area stuff as I don't have my own and ride an older horse (we did showX at epworth which was my first area) who I'm just getting going on, hopefully will have something to do more stuff on next year though. Will watch out for you, it should be a good day, I work...

    Are horses just not selling or could it be my ad?

    Feel free to PM me the ad as well if you want. Obviously make sure you have good clear photos, of her competing if possible, videos of her doing everything, well written ad, and if you've got everything right then unfortunatrly I think the only way to sell quickly is to put a low price.

    Budget/homemade jumps!

    Cement trays make really good working hunter style water trays, Blue tarpaulin for sj style ones! I'd you have any thinish logs, chop them up making the sections of log the height you want to jump, and saw a groove in the top (like cutting out a triangle of the flat surface) and then you can...

    Is anyone else here a rosette snob??

    I'm a rosette snob but rarely win any any more! Although I was a bit annoyed when we went to a local equestrian centre earlier in the year unaff showjumping, paid £10 a class and the rosettes were horrendous! It's not like its a well run, nice competition centre worth paying that for either...

    Most cost effective way to get lessons?

    Our riding club organises lessons every fortnight with my instructor, group/semi private in an indoor, price is about £15 per hour each. Was a bit cheaper but the arena had a new surface in so now costs a bit more to hire, lovely arena though and great instructor

    Project horses

    I'm looking for something 14-15.2, broken in, ideally a gelding but can't be too fussy! Something to bring on to do RC/Unaff/hunting, as close to West Yorkshire as possible.

    People with no transport how do you manage to compete?

    If you don't mind me asking - how much does this roughly work out at to go to a show, say, an hour away? Sorry for hijacking your post OP! I will write a proper reply :P At the moment I don't have a horse or transport! I ride/share a horse, and have some very nice friends who take me to...

    Recommendations for breaking/schooling livery/instructer?

    Sally Mitchell is a great instructor for groundwork/breaking and youngsters etc. Not sure how far she would be from you though. Think she takes in a few schooling liveries as well. Louise Redfearn in West Yorkshire has her own yard, not had lessons off her but has a good...

    Riding clubs - Are they worth it?

    If you get a good one then yes! Don't cost much to join anyway so even if you only do the odd event it can be worth it. The riding club Im in hold lessons about twice weekly, clinics, training for events (area qualifiers etc), hold members only showjumping, dressage, and combined trainings...

    Help need to find a bit that suits my hooligan mare.

    I think magnesium only works if your grazing is magnesium deficient or your horse is low I'm it in general, but worth a shot as some horses really respond to being on it. Equine America do magnitude which is pure mag ox, think the tubs are about 6 months worth as well so good value, or you can...

    Help need to find a bit that suits my hooligan mare.

    I think it's often trial and error with bits... I'd be inclined to try a Dutch gag/Wilkie, personally would use a lozenge mouthpiece as I prefer them, but depends what your mare goes best in. As for the grackle, does she cross her jaw/ open her mouth to evade the bit? If not then totally...

    Dilemma - Loan/Send to Pro/Keep

    What about finding a rider for him? They you only have to pay current livery/keep costs and no extra for riding and competing? Im sure you'd be able to find a rider, especially if they has the chance to compete him.

    How much would you say

    Thats crazy! Thank god my yard is only £80 a month, I would never afford a horse!

    How much would you say

    you would budget per month to keep a horse on DIY at a yard at £80pcm, including shoes, insurance, feed etc etc. I know its a 'how long is a piece of string' question, but I have been horseless for the past 12 months so trying to figure out how much I should budget for keeping my own again, when...

    Worst people you've had turn up for a loan/share...

    Actually I think its the opposite to this - most more experienced, competent riders can get rides for free, without a contract etc. I regularly ride two lovely horses and I'm very lucky to get to compete one - I pay nothing towards costs (apart from entries/lesson fees/transport etc), I'm just...

    Opinions on this horse

    This is what Im thinking at the moment... going to go and have a look as she isn't too far from me. I like the look of her in the Jumping pic as she looks a bit more sports horse-like, maybe just very under muscled in the others?

    Opinions on this horse

    As a project? Its the 'chestnut mare' bit putting me off! I have no problem with them... but would be a bring on and do a bit of low level competing type project and sell. I just don't know what I think...
