    Just waded through this post and there are some lovely horses on here.
    I did have lessons for a while which i loved, but i couldnt afford to keep the lessons up, i was a student with no income and my parents couldnt help me out, so i have never got back in to it, but i would love to again.
    i loved working with them when i was in large animal veterinary practice, but i moved in to a small animal centre and havent worked with them for years now.
    The nearest i get is by selling Bioflow tendon wraps, brushing boot and bioflow rugs. All very popular equine items, with magnets to aid healing or stiffness after excercise. (email me if any one is interested)
    Great collars for dogs and cats who are a bit stiff in their old age too.

    So, anyone got plans for competeing in the summer? I think me an Jack are gonna do some Dressage, maybe a bit of jumping, but as the 'fear' has set in, think I may not lol

    Has anyone else lost their bottle over jumps for no apparent reason? I used to go over anything and everything, now a 2" cross pole looks scary! I hate this, I used to LOVE jumping... :(

    i just got back from the yard, I rode Jack in the school as weather so s***ty and no-one to go out with. The school is surrounded bu a hedge. It was very windy. So he decided to jump out of his skin everytime the wind blew and rustled the leaves a bit. What a plum!!

    He was better after a while, when I asked for trot, he was like, "oh, we're actually working now?" put his head down and got on with it. Had a tw*t-attack every now and then as we went down the long side, but he eventually gave me a really lovely 10m circle in collected canter

    I LOVE my horse!
