    Happy Retirement Un de Sceaux

    what a horse, great owners too. His Ryanair win, when he tanked off with Ruby, who was nothing more than a passenger, was something else. Have a great retirement UDS :)

    Kemboy et al

    I think it's an internal management of the syndicate rather than dishonesty in the running of horses. I don't think there are betting irregularities.

    And another one bites the dust...... :(

    If I'm paying a lot of money to someone who is providing a 'service' I too expect to be treated like a customer. I dont expect to pay a lot of money for the service and then have to join in to provide the service. if you are running a hunt (or any other business) to provide a service to the...

    Hi Form v's Science Supplements

    SS all the way for me. The only company who have proven scientific evidence against all their products. But yes you would still need to feed your balance or separate vits and mins as the SS Flex Pro is a joint supplement not an all round feed. Hi Form make some clains. No evidence to back...

    if you watch the reply from the centre of the course view (i think its on ATR), you will see, as Crystal Ocean heads her in the final furlong, she tilts her head to glance at him, ears back, as if to say not today lad, before she sticks her head out. Thats very alpha female behaviour. I...

    Weirdness with near stifle - vet rec at Ashbrook?

    Personally i would go straight to an orthopedic specialist who will be far more experienced at assessing your horse by eye as a start point before they got to any expensive diagnostic work. Ashbrook wouldnt be my choice of vets for this type of work. My personal choice would be Campbell...

    Sarcoids - this is WAR!

    FFS, get a specialist vet to look at it. Stop messing about with home made potions. Would you seriously put toothpaste on your own skin lesions ?

    Worst thing the cat's done.

    My youngest cat, who is like a small lion, rugby tackled the neighbours dog the other day. it bounced him while he was minding his own business which resulted in a game of chase (cat chasing dog) with dog being floored and pinned to the ground. its quite a small dog and it has no recall or...

    Clipping in summer??

    I clip mine all year round, even when he was showing. In the winter he has a hunter clip and in the summer it all comes off. Hes much happier for it.

    Any working hunter courses to hire within an hour or so from Chester?

    Warren Farm in Formby usually set theirs up for anyone wanting RI practice.

    Tell me about Irish draughts

    I've got a pure bred as well. Smartest horse I've ever owned. Kind and unflappable but with a mind of his own and always 10 steps in front of you, thinking for himself. He has done a bit of everything and been very successful in the show ring and at dressage. Loves to jump, but sees...

    Horse won't cross over left hind, seems very stiff, no obvious injury and not lame

    call the vet. Chiro, Equine TTouch, saddler and dentist are not qualified to give a lameness assessment. You can't rehab an injury properly unless you know what you are rehabbing and the specific exercises needed. So, call the vet.

    Shivering weight off

    the other thing is, I dont think the modern owner recognises fat. When we consider our own expanding waist lines and think nothing of it, why would we think anything of our own fat horses. Fat seems to be the norm these days. I have also noticed that fat horses tend to be owned by fat people.

    Shivering weight off

    Ignorance is definitely a factor. Also thinking because we might feel the cold, the same is true for our horses, which of course isnt true. Also it doesnt help when feed companies like NAF still tell people to feel the base of the ears for a guide to body warmth.

    Both Horses Won't Lunge?

    I've found it particularly useful for rehab work, over poles and walking straight lines when box resting.

    Ruby Walsh retires

    I dont think he was morose as such, perhaps aware of the seriousness of his sport and his fragile position on a daily basis. everyone says he's a super smart intelligent man who says it how it is and doesnt suffer fools. Some of the nonsense written about him on social medial has been...

    Both Horses Won't Lunge?

    I've had some lessons from Simon Battram and it is indeed a skill. I try to incorporate it into regular work and only hope I'm doing it justice. The amount of people who ask why i bother, when the horse is 16, is interesting. People think its just part of the backing process.

    Both Horses Won't Lunge?

    same with long reining.

    Ruby Walsh retires

    Simply the best jockey of his generation. And possibly ever. Such style and elegance on a horse, great hands and seat. I'd love to see him ride in another discipline. A genuinely great horseman. Possibly a prickly character at times but understandable given the dangers jump jockeys...

    Honestly you talk utter garbage at times.

    Rider biomechanics

    Just as a point to note, the pelvis can't be out. its an unjointed structure. Any joint that is "out" is dislocated or broken. Back issues tend to be secondary to lower limb issues - hocks, stifle etc. Presumably your physio gave you some exercises to do ?

    the trouble with Altior is that aside from Une De Sceaux, he hasnt beaten very much. I know thats not his fault. I've not been so impressed with him this season, he looks workman like at best. But no one can argue with 19 straight wins, that is a phenomenal achievement for any horse. He's...

    Before I go to look...

    Its loss of use for a reason. I wouldnt even look personally. You wont get insurance and a sick horse costs the same to take care of as a sound horse.

    Sarcoids - this is WAR!

    I'm suggesting you speak to an expert in sarcoids, not a regular vet. Not all vets are equal when it comes to such things. Or many other things for that matter. In the same way you wouldnt rely of your GP to make a cancer diagnosis.

    Sarcoids - this is WAR!

    Am I the only person who thinks that self medicating sarcoids is madness ? and that there are people on here following this advice. From a random stranger / self professed expert, on the internet ? And I say this as someone with a horse who has had sarcoids and treatment for and therefore...

    4Cyte Epiitalis Forte

    No scientific evidence to back up the claims so on that basis, at that price, it would be a no from me. if you want to go herbal, best stick to boswellia which is reasonably cheap.

    Nail bind lameness?

    I think you also need to get a new farrier.
