    Napping/planting help!!!

    You could try bringing someone on a bike and going first/ having them lead and go off or behind as he starts feeling braver.

    Outdoor halter storage

    Can also put Hooks on the back if you use a box so it can be hung on the fence and easily moved

    Bullying on livery yards....

    Like another poster I’m also autistic and as such do try to keep to myself as much as possible. Only been on 2 yards to date but last one was awful. Horse ridden without my knowledge, cliques controlled by Y/O, a group chat where you were publicly shamed to all on yard (and some of y/o’s...

    Clever shoppers - belts!

    It’s an app where people sell second hand clothes, although some companies have pages for their seconds. They have this one in a few sizes but the leather is marked, I’ve bought from them through Depop with no problems so can vouch that it’s safe!

    Clever shoppers - belts!

    If you have Depop, pioneros has a page where they sell their seconds that could have something you’d like?

    Brushing Boot Recommendations

    As title really. Pony will need turning out in brushing boots for the foreseeable future and I’m paranoid about them holding water! TIA :)

    My Horse is an Idiot

    And I know I can’t be the only one! Don’t get me wrong, I love all his quirks as he’s such a genuine lad really. But despite having show-jumped over a metre, he finds ground poles unbelievably stressful. He’s getting there but his brain just shuts down looking at them? Apart from that is the...

    Livery yards

    Anybody know of any livery yards in the Norfolk/ Suffolk/ Cambridgeshire border area? Will consider all types of livery and becoming increasingly desperate! Tia.

    3.5T horsebox and payload

    I’m always recommending ww trading. Very safe boxes, they show you the entire reinforcing process to prove box safety, and will build for a 1200kg payload which as others have said you’d need to realistically travel two. Plus owner Billy is lovely :)

    Advice please

    Not the same but similar enough to be worth mentioning, my mare was an absolute a** for months, wasn’t like her at all and we tried every pain route we could think of and found nothing, got so close to giving up when it turned out she’d trapped a nerve in her hindquarters (Can’t Remember...

    Equitrek horse boxes

    I’d recommend WW trading in Norfolk. May be a bit far but delivered anywhere in UK, and start at 15k + vat now I think. Seem cheap but man building them is honestly just a sweetheart and shows you the whole process inc. reinforcement of box, etc. Ours is perfect. :)

    Silly youngster moments

    My 5 y/o has successfully jumped 1m a tracks, but I have yet to convince him trotting poles aren’t going to kill him! I’m starting to question if it will always be a quirk he will have, he just cannot cope with those scary coloured things on the floor. Most recently we have learned that wheelie...

    Which horse would you buy?

    I’d retry 2 and see how she feels. When one of mine went lame I was offered a ride on something that I took and swore I’d give back the second mine was sound as we didn’t get on that much. By the time mine came sound I was so in love we’d bought it, so I think it’s worth another try especially...

    Bloody Livery Yards.

    That’s unbelievable! Can’t understand how if nothing else they don’t value the children’s safety. It’s a mystery to me how people can get to act like this

    Bloody Livery Yards.

    It’s such a strange world isn’t it? My expectations of a yard are mainly just for people to not ride my horse without my knowledge and for yard owners to try to avoid drama at the very least, although they currently seem to be the source of it!

    Brilliant idea, will definitely try :). Glad you got out of there

    Bloody Livery Yards.

    that’s honestly horrid. You’d think business owners would want to protect their reputation at least, if not wanting to have some morals

    Bloody Livery Yards.

    Brilliant idea, but they’re out 24/7 unfortunately. May look into having one by field gate though. :) it baffles me that people think it’s okay to ride others horses! If it was done to them I imagine they’d be fuming.

    Bloody Livery Yards.

    Nothing, which I’m hindsight is a poor decision. He was ridden around October and I found out February- ish time and thought it was too irrelevant now to bother bringing up. Began taking tack home and only recently thought it would be okay to leave at yard again.

    It seems nobody can escape mad livery yards. Glad it was all sorted, it sounds horrible!

    Unfortunately not, there’s only one other person who keeps out of all of the drama and she’s very rarely around :(

    Thats awful! The cheek of so many horsey people honestly amazes me at this point.

    Bloody Livery Yards.

    I’m admittedly very worried about this too, but I’m hoping it’ll act as at least a deterrent as he’s an opinionated little sod about what he’ll be ridden in

    Bloody Livery Yards.

    Apologies for the very late update everyone, have needed some time to calm down and there have been other instances since I’d rather not post online. The plan is option B or C ASAP, cannot leave for around a month-ish yet due to personal issues but I have to say I can’t wait to see the back of...

    Bloody Livery Yards.

    This is likely to be a long post so apologies but I need a rant and some advice as I’m at my wits end. I’m trying hard not to jump to conclusions, but went and rode my young horse today and got on to my stirrup lengths being noticeably changed and he was really off compared to usual; and I’m...

    Puncture through tendon sheath at fetlock

    Mine had a similar injury, I don’t remember much As it was 4 years ago but can say she recovered really well and hasn’t had an issue with it since. Fingers crossed this will be the case for yours too :)

    Design a horse

    A mix of all of my threes personalities, safeness, feet and intelligence of the ex racer (believe it or not!), the gingers kindness and ability to tolerate my weirdness, and the boys gung-ho attitude and jump! A 15.2hh Connie x tb in palomino, or possibly buckskin with no markings I think!

    How do you refer to your horse?

    Prick and tosspot for my gelding, affectionately of course.
