    Clunky H&H!

    Is anyone else finding the site really slow to upload, browse? Or even to type in? Used to use it regularly. Been away for a while. It’s not my internet connection. Typing this is working fine, ironically! Anyway, good wishes to you all. 😊

    Watching this shocking documentary. Puppy farming on the most horrendous scale. Innocent/ignorant buyers buying them via internet. Oh God, they've just said these places (filmed by BBC Scotland) have received massive financial aid from EU as farming assistance. One in three puppies die from...

    What would you be feeding this horse? I ask this on behalf of a friend who rides another person's horse - stay with me!

    Charlotte duJardin just got mention on BBC1 10pm news

    That's great news for dressage. Mainstream are finally acknowledging her fantastic achievement, even if it was just one sentence. But that's progress from before. And I still want to see her test. Can't find it anywhere.

    I can access ads and news on the all new H&H website, but cannot get into forums. The strip below banner saying Buy & Sell, Forums etc just doesn't exist. It was fine before they updated site. Does anyone know of anything I can do this to fix this? I thank you.

    Buck Brannaman, who to my shame I'd not heard of, seems just the most incredible man. Docu was on BBC4 and is currently on iplayer. Link is below, I really do recommend watching it.
