    As I've got older, my period has got lighter and lighter. It usually lasts for 3 days at the most now. 45 is quite young to be perimenopausal?

    I haven't read the whole thread, but my first question is: "Why do you need a trainer at all?" If you ride for pleasure and have fun doing it, why not just have lessons every now and then as a tune...

    Nothing so interesting as some of these happens here, but I have seen people doing interesting things when they thought their fences were high enough for people outside not to see over. We also have...

    I have to say that this is probably more of a rider issue than a horse issue. Can your friend commit to riding at least 4x week for the next 3 months? Can you do one ride / week for that three months...

    My horses live out 24/7. Our winters are not very cold, but they do get wet. I happily fully clip any horses in decent work - including the hunters. Clipped horses all wear hoods made of polar fleece...

    It depends on the rules for the arena. I always have left hand to left hand, walk on an inner track, higher speed has priority and lateral work has right of way.

    I'm with Chardevj on this. i don't think that looks any better than what is already available. I actually think it looks a bit more claustrophobic than the one I have.
