    Ditto the straightness. Set up poles on the ground and be sure you can go over them completely perpendicular. You can set up a simple grid with rails to act as chutes on the takeoff and landing.

    The Harmon Field hedge was lovely but I do remember that it attracted bees! I'm not sure what sort of bush they used but I'd stay away from anything with blossoms or flowers!

    I have two clients with persnickety OTTB geldings that have had success with the Micklem bridle. I think horses like it because it keeps the bit very still in their mouth.

    I always worry that just using a sheet will flatten the hair and make them colder. I'm with you- I love the 100 g weight. I have a 100 g Rambo liner that I use under the turnout sheet.
