    My mares progress

    So it’s been 6 months since I bought my first mare. It’s been a lot of hard work with farrier, saddle fitter, vet and physio but it’s been so worth it. I have been riding 2 years and there was some concerns of being a novice with a thoroughbred. However I made sure I had plenty of support around...

    A bit of a rant

    So I keep my horse on a very small livery yard which works perfectly for myself. I am the newest on the yard which has a total of 5 horses (3 geldings and 2 mares). My mare is sharing the field with one other pony who I share poo picking duties with taking it in turns each day. The main things...

    Feeling like a bad horse mum!

    So I’ve now had my mare 2 months. When I bought her I also got her saddle which was meant to be a made to measure silhouette GP saddle. She’s barely used it due to lack of time and never riding (why she sold her in the first place). I had the farrier and physio out rather early on. Sorted out...

    Male riders - Rising Trot

    So my partner has decided he wants to start learning to ride. His daughter loans a horse whose owner is more than happy for him to learn on and he has had a couple of lessons so far.

    WWYD - A bit stuck on best way

    So a couple of weeks ago I bought my own horse - Lunar. She's a 6yr old reschooled ex-race (that never raced). She is a very forgiving ride, really responsive to aids etc. I've been riding her most days to learn/get to know her and for her to get to know me. Every day we (mostly me) make more...

    Riding School vs Reality

    I've had several discussions over the last year I've been riding where it's been mentioned that riding school horses don't give an accurate reality on how to ride a horse. In the riding school they do the same thing day in day out so you learn to be a passenger rather than actually ride, control...

    Perils of being an adult beginner rider

    I guess I'm putting it out there to see if anyone else has had similar experiences and suggestions on what you would do. I've been riding as a 31 year old for just over a year now. I started off at a riding school doing lessons twice a week. I then started helping out a lady with two horses...

    Hoof Clay....any experiences?

    So the horse I ride regularly has a small hole at the bottom of her hoof which seems to be great for tiny little stones to hide. The owner was wanting to try hoof clay to see if that will help. Has anyone had any experience with hoof clay? What were your thoughts on it?
