Teenage girl tonight on her loaned horse trotting/cantering circles this evening on unlevel rock solid frozen school........

She has a 'horsey' mum who didn't ride her horse, company car mentality perhaps?

I can't imagine anyone thinks it's actually ok??/

No. I won't risk it on the roads or the verges either. Just letting mine bog around in their paddocks and will start work again when it thaws (whenever that will be)

No but unfortunatley on yard at home (home not uni) people all were inc. a horse with arthritis so bad the vet reccomended never to ride him again

(old loan horse - i am mad at the owners for getting another sharer for him! Met the sharer though the other day for the first time and reliably informed her that he was advised never to be ridden again.... i dont care if you think i am a bi**h or sh**stirring, at the end of the day the owners were not there when the vet came out, nor did they see the x-rays (i did) and the health of the horse comes first IMHO! Im not normally like that btw, just when it comes to horses

! And everyone was walk, trotting and cantering on a hard and unlevel surface

Not unless I like my horse with a bust leg.

Have to agree with snowy.. does the owner know.. cause if that was my horse, the girl wouldnt be loaning it much longer.

I doubt the owner knows but to be honest I don't know as I don't know who the owner is!

No chance. We are turning out for the sanity of the horses/safety of all the owners but no chance I would ride on our school!

And another No! Why can't people just be patient? Ok so the weather is cr@p at the moment but in a couple of weeks we will all be moaning about the rain no doubt. Why risk damaging your horse and then not having a sound horse to ride all through the summer etc. It really makes me cross to see people being so selfish and inconsiderate to their horses.

NOPE! These people doing it clearly don't understand the consequences or are t**ts. There is a reason we don't work on concrete, especially unlevel concrete!

No, but does anyone know where I could get a flexiride type surface? Its a foam and rubber type stuff that does not freeze.
