    Women athletes all boobless!

    Are we really looking at these amazing athletes, at the pinnacle of their sports and discussing the size of their breasts?! Is that the real measure of a woman?

    Do you agree with keeping horses in 24/7?

    No - a horse needs to move and graze for its digestive system to work correctly amongst other important things (mental health being one) :)

    For those against Rollkur.....

    But it might bring it to others' attention and also it raises money for a good cause. For that matter alone I'm happy to buy one :)

    Patrick Kittell..

    This quote made me so sad, nice to know she's having fun whilst her horse is in pain. I do hope the tone I read the quote in (ie that she enjoys hyperflexing her horses for extended periods...) is entirely innacurate.

    Swedish team up to Anky Panky.

    Can't find any information on this, I doubt it'll happen as the FEI insist no rules have been broken ...

    Keeping a horse thats not for you but you love it

    Yep, the Dales mare my mum bought for us to share 16 years ago. Awful in traffic, couldn't load, couldn't catch etc etc - she's now 24, still awful in traffic, can go weeks without my mum able to catch her, still doesn't load but she's one of the family and deeply loved :)

    Livery tack rooms

    Said yes, but actually not really, we have a yard with 3 horses and a tiny downstairs loo sized 'box' really for 3 lots of feed, tack etc :) My rugs live in a big pile in there, along with my feed buckets, but my saddle lives on the back of my sofa and my bridle is hanging up in my living room :D

    Aged, arthritic horse - barefoot query

    Hi all :) Long time no see! My old warmblood is back off full loan after 7 years. He is rather arthritic in his hind legs, however I think his nearside shoulder is going the same way and his neck is very clicky too. He has been back with me for 8 days now and I put him onto Simple Systems...

    Loanee won't give my horse back

    I have 2 horses out on 'full loan' this means it is for an indeterminate period, so basically a 'permanent loan' unless they don't want them or I want them back. The horses cannot be sold on. I have a full and legal contract with both, of which we both have copies and which were signed by 2...

    Best 'posh' names?

    Absolutely Starkers was my hosse's name :) I did muck up a fence first time I rode him out properly under that name (at the RAF Champs) [rank]Sarah [surname] riding Absolutely Starkers. It's totally not cool to laugh at your own joke, but I did and we had that fence down because I was...

    Showing a dales....

    Yes all we did was slightly trim the tail so it didn't drag on the floor, but we did it in a 'feathered' way, not a straight across cut, we had a lot of fun with her over the years :)

    Pregnancy... what did you do?

    I would say, that with the right amount of help you will be fine! Mucking out and poo picking is fine with a young baby (just get a sling, chuck them on your back and get going! - I'm not sure where you live, but there are plenty of people about who can teach you how to wrap even a newborn baby...

    When WOULD you hit a horse? Or would you?

    When on my old warmblood with him on 2 legs reversing towards a ditch with me on board. We got a sharp smack on the bum and as much as I don't like walloping horses, in that situation it was to save us from VERY serious injuries, it wasn't a conscious decision but an instinctive 'oh ****, we're...

    Random Q - Ketton Hunter Trials

    Yes that one, thank you :) I remember the trakehna (jumped it from standstill after I lost my stirrups), the fan and I remember a big (to me ;) ) chair in amongst the trees. Enjoyed reminiscing about it last night but couldnt for the life of me recall (or find online) the height of it, so ta...
