    Jumping saddles - knee blocks positioning

    Just had a look and I don’t unfortunately - just a few mid-jump pro photos that shocked me with my lower leg and I’m not sure I’m brave enough to put on the forum 😂

    Jumping saddles - knee blocks positioning

    Thanks everyone. Sounds like probably not a simple fix with the blocks then! The tekna is great as it’s fully adjustable and has so far managed to fit every horse I’ve had with a bit of flocking/gullet changes (by a saddler, not just me) but it sounds like it’s not really doing any favours...

    Transport Exeter to Herts - any ideas?

    Hi all, Any suggestions of a good, safe transport company to get a horse from Exeter to Herts next weekend? I have my own transport but it would be a 7 hour round trip, my van has recently had a breakdown and I'm worried I would find it all a bit too stressful doing it by myself with a new...

    Someone posted about a website 'Abler'

    I've been looking into all the options recently. Abler is certainly on my option list, but the FDA issued a warning about it (and others) back in 2014: Basically they are saying that it's not officially approved, and...

    Badly Cracked Hooves... what to do?

    I have a retired mare who lives out 24/7 in a field with 7-8 other retired horses. They are checked 2x per day by the staff but are generally left in peace to be ornamental lawnmowers. I pop in every now and then to deliver treats and scratches and have always been pleased that my mare is...

    Renovating/installing a 3.5t horsebox interior - South East

    Does anyone have any suggestions of where i could take my 3.5t box for a renovation over the winter? I've just had to replace the entire engine and so now it has a brand spanking new engine in it, I can justify tarting up the inside. (and respraying the outside, but i have a guy for that) I...

    Insurance. .. do I ? don't I?

    You may find that your insurance is a bit useless anyway. I did the same as you - choosing not to claim for various things (usually small-ish) because the hassle wasn't worth it. However when I did come to make a claim for a sarcoid treatment, my insurance company refused to pay because I hadn't...

    Anyone based near Pachesham EC? Looking for local intel!

    I'm booked to do the ODE there on Saturday but I am very aware that Pachesham doesn't have the most forgiving ground and I don't want to run on really hard ground. Does anyone local know if the rain this week has helped at all there? (assuming there has been rain in the area!) Many thanks!

    (un)Successful Unaff at Keysoe and more DP Updates

    well done!! i was there too in the 80. Seemed to be a rather eventful day on the XC course so you did very well to finish on board. i must have seen 5 or 6 loose horses, several more falls and that first jump appeared to be causing no end of problems. And it was so windy in the dressage i...

    West Wycombe Sponsored Ride

    What a beautiful day! Thanks to all those who replied to my original question. My mum and grandma came and met us in the field with the water crossings. They saw me v nearly end up in the river as my horse attempted butterfly stroke through the deepest part. On another note, does anyone...

I have some vague recollection that some other brand of rug/liner fits the PE stuff too...

    Advice on Relaxing an Excitable Horse in Dressage

    My mare and I had a toned down version of what you're going through. I found the first time it really 'clicked' and we did an actually partly-relaxed dressage test was in combined training. She did a (tense, as normal) test first, then show jumping (both with the sharer), then I got on and did...
