    Nope, wouldn't buy the mare, unless the price is reduced considerably so that you could do the surgery immediately. In 18mths the chips could move and cause major damage.

    Genuine question – what about other horse professionals such as farriers, vets, physios, saddle fitters etc? Because they are also directly benefitting from the facilities.

    Letting them canter until they relax can be . . . interesting . . .

    The first time I did it we went around the jumps paddock (dead flat, good footing) at a bl**dy good gallop for at least 5min...

    I have an anxious horse too, who you can walk and trot forever and calmly, but as soon as you introduce canter that's all he wants to do.

    I think you'll just have to try a variety of different...

    Firstly, ouch! I hope you are doing ok.

    I’m currently fighting the good fight NOT to stare at the jump/my horse’s ears/my hands on landing – and I mostly ride on my own too. Things that my SJ...

    Definitely keep her - she sounds like she got brains and athleticism - not always a given. If, in a year or three, she really isn't going to take you where you want to go, she will be so much easier...

    The best thing I have heard to use is whisky – by the time you’ve had 4 whiskies you won’t see the dirt!

    That’s really interesting about currying to keep the oil in the coat – maybe that’s why my...

    I thought I’d come back with an update nearly two months and quite a few lessons later.

    The biggest breakthrough was discovering that my horse CAN jump a fence when I’m not giving it the 10,000...

    Yes, it's definitely from New Zealand and it's definitely funny.

    If you liked it you could also try "Housebound" and "Eagle vs Shark" (which is very quirky Kiwi humour)

    "Boy" is also very good...

    The Circle of Death (I have no idea what it's really called) - 20-25m canter circle over a low jump.

    Also trotting over an oxer with placing poles - TOF at either end to come back. Works best...

    Do they have or are they going to do Havanna?

    I am a big fan of plain gear (probably because my horse is the exact opposite of plain) and I was worried that the swoopy browband might look a bit...

    I just received their hackamore bridle two weeks ago. The brown is what I'd call Old Brown - not havanna. I can PM you a photo if you want.

    One part of the bridle had not so good quality leather...

    The Galapagos are like nowhere else on earth.

    We went in 2012 and were just blown away. It's definitely on our list of places that we must go back to. Where else do you have to step around booby...

    Christina - clicker training. Seriously. That's how I taught our Maine Coon to love being combed. I can even comb out his pantaloons (the back of his back legs) while he purrs. He still has a...

    When you find it, will you let me know? I think you and I have very similar requirements.

    Congratulations!

    I think new jobs should be like new horses – both should push you out of your comfort zone somewhat. That way you have to push yourself and grow. (Of course this requires...

    Ok, if the horse checks out medically and you think it's safe to do so, could you help her realise that she has the tools, or can get the tools, to deal with this. You don't have to be an Olympic...
