    Trolley or cart for moving slices of big bay haylage?

    What does everyone use to move slices of big bale hay or haylage about? I am currently using a wheelbarrow but I can only get two slices on and I'd like to move three at a time. It is also a pain hauling it on and getting it balanced on top! I've seen Stubbs do a big trolley with mesh drop...

    Haygains - do they last?

    Just contemplating getting a bale sized Haygain to make life easier this winter but currently gasping at the cost! Unfortunately we have one horse who needs soaked hay and can't have haylage and I want him to put another horse in the field with him, so will need both to have soaked/steamed hay...

    Just out of interest, what do your local vets charge if your dog has a minor injury on a Saturday and needs to be seen in the afternoon (before 5pm)? Specifically the consultation and examination fee, without any treatment?

    What would you expect to pay for a 4yo potential eventer in SE?

    So something that is bred to go up the levels, perhaps sire and full-brother successful at Advanced, for example. Decent conformation, nice movement, recently backed and done a few weeks under saddle, but hacking sensibly alone and in company, good in traffic, happy in the school in walk, trot...

    Meaty Puppy Chews

    I have an 11 week old whippet puppy, who like most pups loves to chew! She has plenty of chew toys, but the thing that keeps her occupied longest is a raw carrot! However, i ration those to half or one a day (depending on size) as I know they are not digestible and can make her poos a little...

    BRC - can you compete in out of Area qualifiers?

    Have tried looking in the rulebook, but can't find it. If your Area doesn't run a qualifier for a specific discipline are members are allowed to compete in qualifiers in other Areas as either individuals or teams and if so are they eligible to qualify for Championships?

    Sun, Storms & Success at BRC National Horse Trials Championships

    I must admit it was a relief to finally get to this Championships with the correct horse as daughter qualified on her horse last year, only for him to go lame with an abscess on the very day we were due to leave. To save letting the team down she ended up borrowing her dad's 17.1hh hunter...

    Enjoyable & Excellent Eridge!

    I apologise in advance that my report will not be as entertaining as HotToTrot's, and the fences involved are nowhere as big! Eridge is our most local event and it is always lovely to see so many people we know there - whether they are competing, helping or spectating. The weather forecast...

    Terrific Tweseldown!

    Daughter was meant to be revising this weekend and having a break from competing as her A levels start on Monday, but after the terrible weather at Borde Hill meant she didn't go cross country she was itching for another run, so managed to get an entry into the BE100 at Tweseldown. We were then...

    Young Horsebox Drivers - presumably insurance is extortionate?

    Just wondering whether it is worth daughter taking her C1 when she is 18, so she is able to drive our 7.5 ton horsebox herself? However, as the cost of insuring her to drive even a little car is expensive, I presume insuring her to drive a horsebox is going to be an astronomical amount? Would...

    What a year!

    Haven't posted a competition report in ages, so thought as we are coming to the end of the year I would post a round-up of the season instead. It started quite early with the Pony Club Dengie Winter Championships and the British Riding Club Winter Championships a week apart. Daughter came 7th...

    Danger of Sycamore Seeds - Atypical Myopathy

    Not sure if this has been posted on here recently, but thought it was worth posting as sadly I have just found out a friend's pony has suspected atypical myopathy and Liphook have also recently posted a warning saying they have dealt with several cases recently. They now think that the seeds of...

    Mouldy mainbale haylage - anyone else had a problem

    For the last few years I have used a local small bale haylage with absolutely no problems at all and don't remember ever getting a duff bale. However, it is not longer available and I have had to swap to another brand, which is Mainbale (made by J & R Tremain from Downe), bought through a local...

    Dressage bit suggestions for eventing giraffe

    Daughter has been riding OH's hunter a bit this summer, initially to do tetrathlon as her own horse has had a very busy schedule. However, to get more XC practice she popped him round a PC ODE run over a BE100 course and he went double clear. Then when her own horse was out of action, she...

    Fantastic month - RC Championships, PC Championships & BE Chilham

    A bit of background first, daughter has had the ginger one nearly three years. We bought him as a rising 7 year old, who had done some showjumping but not competed cross country or done a dressage test before. However, he has a lovely attitude and has always tried hard to please. The last...

    Arena design/plans service (without build)

    Wondering whether there are firms that offer a service to design and draw up plans for an arena, but without wanting to do the build as well? The site for our proposed school is not totally level so will need a bit of cut and fill, and I don't think I'm up to drawing the plans myself, but we...

    Planning and surfaces for building arena in visually sensitive area

    I think we are finally going to bite the bullet and apply for planning permission to build an arena in our field. We not only want to use it for ridden exercise but also as an all-weather turnout in wet weather to prevent land poaching. However, we are in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty...

    XC courses open for schooling in SE with jumps in water

    Will Amigo turnout neck cover fit on Amigo insulator rug?

    Daughter's horse has an Amigo MW turnout rug, but it has no neck cover attachments on it. Wanted to get him a rug to wear underneath it anyway, and noticed that the Amigo insulators have attachments for the matching stable neck cover. Wondered if the turnout and stable neck covers have the...

    The Sprog & the Ginger One have a great time at Riding Club Nationals

    Well, the long journey (5 hours) to Lincoln was definitely worth it, and particularly nice that the long term weather forecast of heavy showers was wrong! Although we drove through a couple of showers on the way up, we arrived to find the sun shining at the showground. Once the ginger one was...
