    Cinnabar moths: any point in introducing to control ragwort?

    Was identifying a moth this morning in our veggie garden and it is a cinnabar moth very pretty. We do not have ragwort but maybe our neighours do, I hope that it is now a moth it keeps to what the book says and drinks nectar and not our vegs. Love how a thread on H&H comes up for about...

    Her Majesty's Cavalry

    Happened to see it by chance very interesting but yes also thought how they are taught to mount is so wrong. The cantering long before being ready also not great for the horses which were putting in a quite a few bucks. Health and safety not an issue with the army I guess! Would love to see them...

    Canter is too exciting... thoughts?

    Very interesting replies and I guess I would have said more on the lines that W&R above said. My horse is very lazy in canter in the school and to pep her up I do lots of very short canters which makes her excited. So I think what that shows that every horse is different and you have to find...

    Anyone NOT sick of horse hunting & wanting to find another? Pretty please?

    There could well be Ester as it was nearly 20 years ago we saw the sale ring bust up. Also you have the correct problem of the quarter horse the HYPP which they likened to having epilepse when explaining it to us. With out goggling is PSSM the same or simular ?

    Anyone NOT sick of horse hunting & wanting to find another? Pretty please?

    One you like seems quite a good chose. Just make sure there is no Impressive in the quarter horse side it was an eye opener to us to nearly see a punch up in a sale room as the hammer went down on a horse that someone stood up and said but it has Impressive in it. It was resold there and than...

    Why do you compete?

    I have lessons to keep me in check to ride my 19 year old horse correctly so she will last for several more years for my long hacks. I have started low level dressage to complement the lessons and to stave of dementia by learning tests as I am no spring chicken. It has been helped by getting...

    Suddenly scared of poles again

    I am so glad to hear it is not just my mare I do not jump but like to do poles and she used to event with someone else but you would think that she has never seen a pole on the ground .

    Great videos both look like they enjoy their jumping and have plenty of scope just a bit of refining to do. Good tip from D66 to check for wolf teeth.

    What do you tow with?

    Discovery 4 which is great and even better now I have learnt how to use it! Towing in sport mode gives a lovely ride I would never have thought to use sport but have been on the Land Rover experience day and got a lot of tips to towing with an automatic.
