    Horse will not work in school on her own

    The main thing I get from your post is that the horse is spooking - and without another horse present is hyper vigilant. I purchased a late start horse with a similar issue especially out hacking alone. I was recommended foam ear plugs and despite being reluctant to use them initially- I did...

    Neighbour harrassing horses

    The neighbour in question sounds slightly unbalanced imo - so I doubt you will be able to reason with her. As you have now received a threat - it is in your best interest going forward to report the threat to the police. Ask that the incident be kept on record as you feel there is a genuine...

    Want to try (drag)hunting but scared of sabs

    Perhaps ycbm you should take your own advice and "shut up moaning about" sabbing. Recently you have endlessly trolled the Hunting forum regarding pro sab activities and to be honest it is becoming quite tiresome. The hunting forum like other fora on H&H is ultimately a place for those with...

    Perhaps that overt enquiry was enough to cause some concern that you were digging? Remember you said previously Do you believe every hunt which you approach and do not get a positive response from - is up to nefarious activities lol?

    The Unspeakable?

    Ok I can accept that rationale. However if it works both ways for both antis and hunters -then Antis must also accept that their propaganda is also just that. Travellers / Gypseys have horses but I doubt if they are considered elite. I know small farmers with a couple of horses ditto. I know...

    The Unspeakable?

    Alas Alec- I lack your absolute patience but yes I do prefer to call a spade a spade. At times I resort to the hunting forum for a little r&r only to find the same old. I promise to put it behind me - I'm hunting tomorrow : )

    The Unspeakable?

    How so? Do explain. On point dislike trail hunting or whatever stance you chose to take but attempting throw in all the kitchen furniture as part of your argument renders it less than convincing. Absolute biblox. Nowhere did I infer any of the above. Again your argument involves some...

    The Unspeakable?

    I would respectfully disagree. To a point all the listed things do happen on occasion - despite the best efforts of people who hunt to maintain to maintain good relations with those that do not. It is also important to remember many who hunt are also locals and like all equestrians have the...

    The Unspeakable?

    I don't think it is possible that anyone can extrapolate from a small number of posts that an entire community is or is not "open-minded, tolerant or intelligent" I find the argument regarding hunting and socio-economic status truly bizarre. You said - "Hunting far beyond the financial...

    Meet Cards

    I don't believe you can make that assumption. The increased activity of anti and sab groups and the anti-social activity that such groups entail now means that many hunts are having to be ultra careful as to their normal and - I mean hunting within the law - activities. I dont know the hunts...

    Dare I..... Boxing Day meet.....

    That may be so. However it is of little use to extrapolate any particular statement as a universally held idea. As said there will always be differences and that holds truth for all such endeavours. If you dare - do!

    Dare I..... Boxing Day meet.....

    Well that escalated quickly lol. It can be said that many conflicts have arisen from perceived slights - personally I would pay little attention to any differences between those who have hunted for decades and those newer to hunting. Differences are inevitable - such is the nature of change...

    TP - you stated that you didnt understand "why hunts should be nervous of being monitored" and in reply I detailed why many people who hunt would indeed be uncomfortable being 'monitored' by individuals or groups whose are at best unvetted and have no bona fides to undertake any such self...

    Meet Cards

    TP - yes I saw those posts. However they do not answer the points laid out as to why the actions of monitors/Antis remain unacceptable behaviour in a democratic society. There is no rationale for any self selected group of citizens to set themselves up to monitor and by their actions...

    Meet Cards

    You don't understand "why hunts should be nervous of being monitored" Seriously? The fact that 'monitor' and 'Anti' has become for all purposes an inseparable term There is no basis in law for any private citizen or recreational group to submit to being policed by what is in effect a...

    History of Hunting?

    In Ireland at least there are much earlier historic references to the control of predators especially wolves by hunting. In Ireland the Brehon laws were a codacised legal system which detailed that predators such as wolves "did pose a threat to livestock, if not to humans. If you rented...

    Milikins - are you feeling alright? Just saw this - what was said that makes JM possibly the originator of this thread???? I can categorically state this thread is my own work and any resemblance to the ramblings of any person alive or otherwise is absolute twaddle. Goodnight.

    But I don't believe I am 'promoting' anything. I'm afraid these days my language skills are very rusty indeed. So I take it (not understanding any Arabic whatsover) that 'suk qanuni' translates as statutory instrument? There - I'll have learnt something today! I must admit of late the hunting...

    On Vote on hunting after the next election

    Hmmm - I don't believe I have caught a 'repeal disease' from your good self. Yes the act may perhaps be repealed but I can't see this happening without some further fallout. However the current status quo argument being pushed by some leads to ideas of appeasement and capitulation. The danger...

    I do agree that this is not a religion in any shape or form. IMO to call it such is in effect an insult to true religous belief. This question the campaign is targeting in the census form states "What is your religion" Even though current legislation would appear to hold 'religon' and...

    On Vote on hunting after the next election

    Personally I am more interested in the idea highlighted in the article that the goverment will achieve a much bigger majority thus enabling the bill to be successfully repealed. I am not sure that the mechanism for overturning what was in effect a piece of very poor legislation will be that...

    Sycamore trees?. What do I need to know?

    A number of Acer species are known to produce the toxin include the following: Common sycamore or sycamore maple (Acer Pseudoplatanus) in Europe or the Box Elder (Acer negundo) in The United States. Other members of the Sapindaceae family of trees which includes Acers (Maples) may produce...

    Sycamore trees?. What do I need to know?

    There are two periods of concern, these are autumn - when the winged seeds and leaves fall do the ground and may pose a danger to grazing horses and spring when the young seedlings appear. I would suggest you walk the field and try and identify any tree seedlings hidden the grass. Especially...

    Interestingly the "sacred fox" site states the following: "Our aim is to use the 2021 UK National Census as a massive petition against hunting by becoming listed as a religous denomination (just as Jedi was in 2001) through stating 'Sacred Fox' as another religion. While this may only gain...
