    Horsebox insurers and breakdown recommendations please!

    Shearwater who use ERS. Before I was with NFU but as well as being more expensive, didn't have homestart included in their recovery despite using the same company. I also found the same as Elleskywalker with NFU. A friend wanted to borrow the lorry so I called and had her added to the policy...

    Am I a novice rider?

    Of the half dozen people I know who bought an non ideal first horse. One like kaylum it worked out for and made them as a rider; two had falls and lost confidence and gave up riding; the rest didn't end in disaster but didn't go well either. They tried their best but but made little progress...

    Am I a novice rider?

    That would be my first thought as something that has potential to show jump, tbs aren't really built or bred for pure show jumping. I would have said a nice irish horse for what you want. Are you not in the UK though, both irish horses and warmbloods seem to be pretty common everywhere. They...

    Am I a novice rider?

    Do you have experience of ex racers, I love them but they're not everyone's cup of tea In terms of adverts 'Not Novice Ride' usually means one of two thing:- some people put no novices for a young horse even if it's straightforward as it needs someone experienced enough to continue its...

    What's the obsession with buckskins and duns?

    Always had a soft spot for Buckskins and especially Pallys. When I was younger PBA palominos were especially popular, my pony when I was younger was a PBA chestnut mare that came out of that breeding and while she was a gorgeous golden chestnut part of me wished she'd inherited the cream from...

    One of my tbs does that two tone thing, it's quite satisfying to groom out the old coat revealing lovely bright bay underneath.

    Moulting - slow summer coat growth

    One of mine is looking really scruffy at the moment. The unclipped bits are coming out unevenly and he looks like the moths have been at him. The clipped bits look a bit bare in places where summer coat hasn't come through yet so a bit like your bare patches. He's very shiny through. Hasn't...

    How my 1st attempt at stressage went

    The first test I did with mine was on grass and the sight of white boards against bright green grass was more than he could cope with. After scuttling through the gap at A we proceeded down the centre line to C were he span and made an attempt to leg it out of the ring. The rest of the test...

    Worming for tapeworm - what wormer?

    That's my situation. Encysted has to be done at a certain time but ym prefers tapeworm to be done when we change from Summer/Winter fields. So mine were done with Moxidectin in January. I saliva test but one comes back positive each time. I have Equitape for this time *(vet confirmed it will...

    Flu and Tet jabs?

    Whereas mine appears to only be making £3 per injection. The call out charge is fixed whatever they come out for and split if it's more than one client. I once paid an 1/8th of a call out on a big livery yard.

    Equine flu and competition checks

    I only restarted in the last month because of the gap. Basically course of 3 were done in 2012, marked as 1 2 and 3 on my passport. I have been vaccinating annually well inside the 12 months since I bought horse in 2014. After a livery at the yard was sent home from an event when a vet...

    Equine flu and competition checks

    Just to add, even the venues that did check, just looked at the date of the last jab. No one spotted that on my horse's passport, many years ago before I bought him, the initial course was not done correctly. I have restarted now. Round here it's the venues not the organisation. One venue...

    Equine flu and competition checks

    Some are checking, some are not. Some are only asking for 12 months not 6. The competitions that are asking for 6 month checks are really suffering from low entries as people go elsewhere. This is all local unaffiliated.

    Specific vet within a practise...

    At least they're easily identifiable now. I use biggish practice with an attached hospital and there's a couple I prefer to use. I just say when I call up "is J around later this week for a visit" I did feel guilty about using one of the senior vets for jabs but I use it as an opportunity to...

    Why do you compete?

    When it comes to jumping what I do at a competition is not what I would do at home. Jumping a full course with fillers and (hopefully) a jump off is a different experience and not one I could easily replicate either in terms of facilities or mindset. I find I ride differently as well, it's to...

    Makeshift mounting blocks?

    Would you recommend the PE 'Air Cooled Original Eventing Boot'?

    A friend of mine with an ISH but on the chunkier side found that PE boots generally didn't work for her horse at all. His lower leg was shorter and wider. I find the PE come up long rather than wide which is why I have had good success with them on TBs. I've used the sports boots, xc boots...

    Would you recommend the PE 'Air Cooled Original Eventing Boot'?

    I've got them on a very similar stamp of tb to you. I have the mediums however I could almost have managed a small behind. Mediums in front are perfect.

    Q for owners of coloureds

    My first pony was a bay and white mare and agree about the coloured patches feeling different, a bit smoother than the white around. At the same time my friend had a leopard spot appaloosa and it was even more noticeable with him that the spots were smoother and the white hair fluffier. Her...
