    So in the end I had the lesson on Sat and didn’t compete on Sun (for non-horse related reasons.) The lesson was great. Sometimes my trainer is at shows, but he’s not always available and I’m ok to...

    Balancing lessons and competing

    How do you keep the balance between lessons and competing? What do you do if you have to choose between them?

    Hermien – hugs to you and Lola Cat.

    I really don’t have anything to add to what Belmont has said, which is a good summary. It is such a tough decision to make for our beloved friends.

    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.

    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.
