    I'm still waiting, but we are waiting on three parcels from the States, two of which have been sent USPS and one which has apparently had delivery attempted twice - both times when we're at home. So...

    To my giftee, a package is on its way. The tracking indicates that it hasn't left Australia yet - it was posted a week ago. I'm hoping that the tracking is wrong.

    To my elf, nothing yet. But...

    I usually dismount with both feet out of the stirrups, swing the right leg over the back and slide down. But since my knee reconstruction (nearly 12 months now!) and especially when I was first...

    I've been reading the ones about customisation. I just wanted to say that you might need to be careful - I'm now having to sell my lovely horse, and while horse stuff would be lovely, it would also...

    Could you get her that stats: THIS many riders ride XC every year. There are THIS many falls, and of these THIS % result in injury. It is risky, but so is riding. Then get her out to an event,...

    Apologies. I'm pretty upset by the entire situation, and had assumed (incorrectly obviously) that everyone was psychic and knew all the background. :rolleyes: I should have been clearer.

    He's 12, been off the track 6 years. His teeth are fine, has seen a chiro every 4 - 6 weeks. He's on a magnesium/ B1 supplement. He has been in work with a professional trainer (different one) for...

    UPDATE: He's just too spooky and green for me. We could continue, but I'm not enjoying the journey and he isn't enjoying it with me either. He hasn't jacked up again, but my coach thinks he's just...

    Hi everyone. Lots of positives here so I'm feeling better. I just want to make clear that he can have as much time physically as he needs. However the resistance I mentioned took the form of a rear...

    The past three weeks have been a bit of a rollercoaster so I'm here to get some support, advice, similar stories.

    Three weeks ago my lovely tb was diagnosed with a corneal ulcer. Four days later,...

    I love my new BO and barn because, the day I went there to beg to be let on there with my horse, it was a Sunday evening. A casual worker was feeding up and reported a swollen hind leg and wire in...

    Why not just call him Moose? Or the Latin name? 'Alces alces' is it, I think, and is kinda cool. Though someone can correct my Latin! :)

    By dressage judge to me after a test: "He'll be great when he learns 'forward' and 'impulsion'." The horse in question was a 24 year old ex 2* eventer who went into the jumping rounds in the lead...
