  1. The Cleveland Bay

    Cleveland Bay

     

    When Julie Roberts got in touch to tell us about her two horses we had to share it as a blog, this special breed should be celebrated. The beautiful shades of bay, from light to dark, with black points on the legs and a black mane and tail, some with a hint of red colour on the knees make them absolutely eye-catching. Over to you Julie. "I’ve ridden and been around horses since I was a small child and wouldn’t want to be without them. I’ve owned and ridden all shapes and sizes but the breed that has won my heart since seeing them at a show many years ago is the Cleveland Bay.

  2. Taking on an ex-racehorse

    Ex-racehorses

     

     

    What a year 2020 has been for us all, and certainly not in the way we planned! I know I had ideas about what we both were going to achieve and places we were going to go, but the reality of this year has meant we have mainly just enjoyed each other’s company and got to know one another better. I’m Evie and the chestnut giant in the pictures is Trace Elements, better known as Paddy. He is a 17hh ex-racehorse I’ve had for the past two years, he's a real character and I'm looking forward to telling you more about him in this blog.

  4. Meet Kate

    One Club member story

     

    Three years ago I suffered a serious fall when viewing a horse, the stirrup leather broke and the horse went mad which resulted in me having a quite severe concussion and spending the night in A&E. I was thrown several feet into the air which then led to me landing head and neck first on the ground. I was unconscious for a while, it felt as though I was on a cloud and no one could reach me. I couldn't remember a thing, pins for my bank cards, my phone number, I could barely recognise my boyfriend. I'm Kate and this is my equestrian story.

  10. Your Riding Stories - Oh Gill

    Your Riding Stories

     

    Here is my funny story. At the age of 62, I had always ridden but was getting a tad nervous, with self-preservation always in front of my mind, however one day I decided to be brave. It was a sunny Sunday morning and I agreed to a hack out with my adult daughter. The ride started well on two perfectly behaved ponies and I was enjoying life wondering why I wasn't brave more often.

  11. Your Riding Stories - Driving Force

    Naomi Sutton's Riding story

     

    I have faced many challenges in my life so far. I’ve overcome a mental health illness that many never recover from, and I currently still live with two chronic physical health conditions that affect my mobility. Horses have been my sanctuary through all of this and in a crazy turn of events I’m now an elite para-equestrian athlete! This is my "pinch me I'm dreaming" story.

  12. Over rugging: A Rugging Guide

    Over rugging: A Rugging Guide

     

    I find myself constantly wondering what rug to put on my mare Ruby who is a chunky cob.  I prefer having her in the lightest rugs possible and can see how easy it would be to over-rug, thinking it would be better to keep your horse warm than let them get cold. The biggest issue can be chilly mornings and warmer days, the horse may then sweat under the thick rug that was put on in the morning as you whizzed off to work.
