    Keep, sell, loan - HELP!

    I was in a similar position to you. I bought a RC all rounder after having a tricky TB. The new horse was the sweetest horse ever but without sparkle. I thought i could get him going more forward but after 3 years of trying I realised I wasn't enjoying competing on him. He was always behind the...

    Talk to me about sweating and seat savers

    I have an embarrassing problem. I get very hot when I ride and this results in a sweaty botty. Unsightly patch on my jodhpurs , but now my saddle leather is becoming discoloured. Might a seat saver help by absorbing the moisture or would it make things worse? Any suggestions?

    She's incredible. Let's hope she stays in training but I bet the Sheikh can't wait for her to become a brood mare

    Horse whisperer/animal communicator

    This is fascinating but I remain a sceptic. The thing about the headcollar is a common one. I've read other peoples reports about seeing an Animal Communicator and they invariably say something about the headcollar being used. In fact I had to check your post wasn't an old one because I'm...

    Those of you who use quick release ties, do you mean the quick release bungee ties? I've seen them online and wondered if they were worth getting

    First Time Fence Judging...any tips please?

    Thanks for all the tips. I had a long but great day, thank you. Saw lots of star riders and everyone was clear at my fence so nothing tricky to deal with. Really glad I made the effort.

    Travelling with no partition in trailer...

    Thats right, thats where I tie my haynet. My horse travels cross tied without a partition. They have a ring thing that slides along on the rails so you can push it nearer to the horse

    FEI Yellow Cards / Disciplinaries

    The rules are not applied consistently. James Somerville got a yellow card at Blair for jumping the rope. I saw it on the ERM live stream.He crossed the finish line and didn't pull up in time so got to the end of the chute and had to jump the string.

    FEI Yellow Cards / Disciplinaries

    Interesting. I can't open the file either at the moment. Out of interest, did Caroline Powell get one for jumping into the crowd at Burghley?

    Horse who doesn't perform well in a competition arena.

    I have a horse like this that doesn't like competing either, however he shuts down rather than lights up like yours. I wanted to do eventing, showjumping, riding club etc. I kept going with him for a year, trying all sorts of different things, different trainers, feed, routines etc. Several...

    Weekend plans :)

    Well......not that I'm particularly superstitious but I wrote in Weekend Plans last week (for the first time in literally ages) about going cubbing. Things didn't go totally to plan and horse managed to cut himself rather nastily resulting in this weekends plans being most definitely off and...

    Weekend plans

    Yes, I realised for the first time my trailer didn't have an internal light! Horse was fine about it though. It was amazing watching the sun come up through the mist and steam off the horses. The view made it all worth while. Horse was rather naughty as he is used to drag hunting so didn't...

    WEG - Watching live on FEI TV

    It's a really poor service and so are the results services. I can't get Longine or WEG websites to work to find out how we are doing even if we can't watch it Live or OnDemand

    Agree. Does anyone know where I can see the eventing dressage scores?
