You don't need to feed anything special just because your jumping Smile
I assume your doing level 5/4/3? If that is the case then just a normal feed correctly balanced should be enough, unless you have a horse that requires a lot of calories to maintain weight or that is on the fat side.
What breed is your horse? How much work are they in and are they an easy/normal/hard keeper?

The Dancing Horse (in Garfield) usually have some Pikeur jackets in stock - call them and check. I also saw a lot of Pikeur a few months back at Horseland Lilydale (which is slightly unusual - Horseland usually don't stock it).

I thought since it's fairly distinctive with the zig zag pattern on the noseband that if someone had one they could pick it out straight away. I've never seen one similar out & about.

Hello,

I have done a search and all I can find is people raving about their love for Ireland but not much info on where to go, what to see etc.

I will be heading over in July next year. I have a Northern Irish Passport so ideally would like to see some of the North, but otherwise I am not sure where to start....

I have googled and looked at reviews. I will be with my mum (she is lots of fun and travels a lot) so we would be looking to do anything from horse riding, visiting quaint little pubs, touristy sight seeing, hiring cars and exploring. Basically anything!

We will have between 1-3 weeks depending on how long we want to split our time between Ireland and France

Any suggestions are more than welcome Very Happy
Thanks!


Be the change you want to see in the world Smile

I spent about 10 days in Ireland last July. Weather was fabulous the whole time surprisingly Very Happy

We spent a few days exploring Dublin - Trinity College, Natural History Museum, Grafton St, O'Connell St, Guinness Storehouse (yuck, guinness! Laughing ), Temple Bar area, River Liffey etc.
I love Dublin, it's such a small city, and i've never met friendlier people than the Irish!

We did a day tour to Glendalough and Kilkenny which were both lovely.
We did all around the Dingle Peninsula and Ring of Kerry which had stunning views.
Did the Blarney Castle, which was nice but not sure if it was worth it. I personally liked the Kilkenny or Killarney Castles more.
Did the Cliffs of Moher - nearly got blown away Laughing but loved it.
Went through a lovely small town called Cong on the way back to Dublin.

Loved Cork also, and Killarney. I think one of the highlights of Ireland was just chatting to the locals (particularly because i'm fond of the accent Laughing ) and going to nice pubs in the evening.

I only know of Larne. (Family's from there) its as north as you can get haha. There's nothing thrilling but the port has some pretty interesting history. Dolphins and whales pass by the point ( depends when u go) There's a few tourist places, a maze and things to do. I know there a quite a few stables around the area that do 'trekking' haha.
Would love to get there soon! Beautiful country! ( which is prob why I like gippsland ( rolling hills and forest ) and it doesn't get unbearably cold like Ireland haha)
Have a great trip.

There's an excellent tourist complex at bunratty castle complete with wolf hounds and the original durty nellies pub which is the oldest pub in ... somewhere - probably not the whole of Ireland. Then there's the national stud of course! There's a Japanese gardens right next to that.

News to the people of Portstewart and Coleraine, I'm sure.

Depends on what you're interested in. The Game of Thrones tours are popular enough. Carrick a Rede rope bridge is cool, but pick the right weather so you don't become a human kite. It's near the Giant's Causeway and Dunluce Castle too, which are worth a visit. You'll see evidence of the Troubles while you're here, cos you just will, but there are mural tours if you're interested. I haven't paid much attention to the touristy things, cos I'm just living here and whatnot, but those are probably worth a look, if terribly obvious.

You can't go ten minutes without seeing an ad for www.discovernorthernireland.com, so I'm sure you'll get some info there.

Would recommend hunting in Ireland - It looks like a lot of fun. Also, don't forget to visit the Irish National Stud (shame that Vintage Crop is no longer there.)

Oh I loved Ireland. Favourite place ever.

The West Coast is a must-do. Giant's Causeway I could take it or leave it, we have some pretty cool rocks in Australia and I thought it was a bit overrated. Make sure you do a walking tour in Derry as there is so much history (some, of course, very violent).

Quaint pubs... There's an awesome one in Ennis, and one in Bundoran ran by little old ladies who put 'magic' in the Guinness. I also loved Kilkenny and Cork for the pub atmosphere.

Would recommend the Ring of Kerry and although I didn't do it, I would recommend visiting the Aran Islands (on bicycle?) because I've heard amazing things.

Galway was my favourite city. In love with the place.

We use to just clip the belly hair off our fluffy cat. So just the hair from between front legs and arm pits back to between back legs.

You really couldn't tell unless he was laying on his back and he could self regulate his temp better instead of being stuck without fur.

That's a great idea! My ragdolls cope ok through summer unclipped, but we do have to leave the air conditioner running for them on the really hot days. Do you clip them yourself, or get the vet to do it?
