Last week whilst we were away in Cyprus for a friend’s wedding, our friend’s Sue Brennan and Jade Clark from Brennan Equestrian had Olly on a schooling livery. Being as I’d started re-schooling Olly before we went away I didn’t then want to leave Olly in a field for 12 days doing nothing as wecontinue reading

Spring time has been particularly wetter than first anticipated but sure enough we got Olly tacked up and took him out…continue reading
Unless you are a new horse owner (or loaner), like me, you should be well versed in the requirements of equine worming. However, not all of us know everything and certainly since I last owned Olly guidelines regarding worming has changed, so this is a little post to remind or advise those of you who may be a little rusty when it comes to worming your horse.continue reading
