    This can’t go on any longer

    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.

    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...

    Seat Saver

    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

    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.
