Hoping that the fount of knowledge that is HHO can help.
Does anyone know if the Thorowgood Selecta knee blocks ( the ones with velcro and poppers ) will fit on a leather Albion Selecta.
The leather saddle and the blocks are both the same size i.e. 17”
Firstly you need to know I do NOT do competitions.
About a month ago I was persuaded to enter a Walk and Trot test to enlarge my horse’s education and this is what happened.
The competition was very user friendly with lots of help, the occasional overlooking of the finer points of dressage and...
My horse was ridden previously in this bit. Sorry I don't have the bit so I can't take a better photo. Does anyone know what it is? Similar bits I have seen have the lozenge the other way up. I would ideally like it as an eggbutt or hanging cheek. Thanks
Which tie or stock with this jacket for low level dressage or showing.
Dark green jacket with orange-y and reddish check and navy collar and pocket trims ( not flaps )
My horse is piebald.
This is for everyone who took the time to help me find a name for my new mare.
I promised that I would reveal her name but before I do I have a few other things to say.
Thank you to all who replied. I have not have chosen any of the names you suggested but everyone helped by either...
I am trying to decide which is best, sealed eva floor which appears to drain between ramp and body or lift up floor with drainage holes. Both would have aluminium underneath.
Manufacturers seem to differ in their recommendations. One tells me that sealed is best as urine will rot the...
I lost my horses to illness last year and some of you may remember I asked for suggestions of where to look for their successor. I bought her a couple of months ago.
In spite of much thought she still lacks a stable name. Her passported name ( which I won't tell you ) doesn't suit her. The...

I am trying to search on the web for my new horse but each website as far as I can judge apart from Horse and Hound makes it very difficult.
I want to search for specific age range, height range, distance from my home, horse ability and possibly the breed.
I am fed up with scrolling...
WOW... Golly gosh... Thanks to esther from another thread but I needed
large pic on facebook / right click / click on 'open image in new tab' / copy code from search bar on new tab including https etc /
paste in as directed i.e.
I read the thread "PSSM your story" and asked what it was as I had no idea.
The replies convinced me to send hair from my horse for the test as she had some symptoms.
The results came through today and I think I am relieved the horse does not have PSSM but what does the rest mean? Can anyone...
I haven't posted about my own riding before but today has been a bit different so here goes.
After a winter of coughs, colds and chest infections I have begun to ride again. C enjoyed her long holiday but she has lost some muscle also I still get breathless easily so we have taken things...
So inspired by Goldenstar, even though it's not nearly as funny, here's what happened to me yesterday.
We went for our usual jumping lesson. There were 3 of us. My friend on her young horse and a lady we hadn't met before. It turned out that the new ladies horse was greener than ours and had...
Has anyone any suggestions for a haynet that will work for me? I have searched t'internet and not found what I need.

Hi everyone, please help as my head is spinning!
Elderly semi-retired horse needs a new bit. ( Reasons complicated so won't go in to them here )
I contacted a bitbank, myler and neue schule.
Bitbank suggested a Myler Correctional Ported Barrel Pelham...
Just seen this on an ebay advert... ( so much for spell check )
"Brand new condition unwanted gift . Sheepskin seat saver , cream ( mocca brown electric attachments )never used"
I wonder why they haven't used it !!
Seat savers are made thick for comfort but all the ones I have tried are much too thick. They fill too much of the saddle seat. I have tried real sheepskin and a Heather Moffat one. Does anyone know of a thin one. Thanks
I have tried on a Point 2 medium air jacket over a body protector and alone and although the assistant told me it was right for me, it seemed VERY long at the back. I am 5' 2". Are Helite vests the same length as Point 2? I have discounted Hit Air as I live in a Hit Air free area and I want to...
I need new boots for hacking, fun rides etc.
I take approximately a size 6 boot. Most jodhpur boots are too narrow in the foot and too big at the ankle. Most long boots are also too narrow in the foot and too big in the ankle but also too long in the leg.
I have a pair of Regent Pro Rustler...
Shires fly rug owners can you help? My horse wears 6'3" Rambo and Rhino Wugs. She needs a new fly sheet desperately. I have tried a Shires Tempest 6' on her but it is, of course, too small. Local shop has only 6'6". Silly question maybe but would that swamp her? Thanks in advance.
