Anyone bought from NeddyWear? Boots in particular? [message #3288499] Tue, 13 October 2015 19:52

Just wondering if anyone here has bought online from NeddyWear before? How was the service/delivery? What was the quality of the products like?

Have been searching for some hot pink horse boots and found that they stock them. The thing is they are much cheaper than anywhere else i have found so if cheaper = terrible quality obviously i'm not going to muck around and skrimp with a horse's legs.

Will be emailing the store before i buy any but thought i would check here first. TIA Very Happy

My lovely Flash is on tour of the local Primary Schools as a Lighthorse pack horse. He is taking it in his stride. His favourite bit is the pats he gets at the end from the children. When the first school was finished and walked away he was wanting to follow them. He most likely thought they had forgotten to give him treats. Laughing It is so great being part of these community events that highlight the sacrifice our men and horses made in WW1.

Hi all
I have been asked to post the following:

I have been asked by Sally Francis owner/operator of Tooradin Estate to inform all of my students, friends & horse owners that The Tooradin Estate has been put in lock down due to an out break of strangles.
Please do not go to the Estate & if you have been there in the past week please contact your Vet for advise re-treatment.
A good time for everyone to check vaccination dates.
We do ours here on the horses birthday every year so it is easy to remember. 1st of August.

I have one dose of frozen semen to Alegria Asombroso. I won't be using it & it's just for this 2015 breeding season only. It does not include a LFG just the semen.
I'm happy to sell this as a best offer over $300. I paid $1000 for the service last year. All transport of semen & vet costs are to be met by the buyer. Could be a very cheap foal if you want to make an offer. Check him out on www.spanishhorsestud.com. He's a lovely free moving horse, great over a warmblood mare to breed an impressive spanish warmblood which was my intention.

Hi just wanting some feed back on surecushion and Horsemat UK stable rubber.... Have narrowed it down to these two but want some info on good or bad, likes dislikes with either brand.
Also anyone know about Shore hardness in rubber, I read that it should be 60 for horses to stand on in stable but is that anything to do with cushioning or just slip. Surecushion is 70 and Horsemat is 65

Hey guys!

I'm looking into running a coaching study group. I am looking for expressions of interest of anyone who would be interested in catching up on a regular basis to work through our EA coaching qualifications whether it be the horse management, riding or coaching books.

I figure it will be alot cheaper to get a coach educator in to assess a group of us rather than us paying separately, and i have the facilities here to be able to run all the practical components.

Anyone who wants to participate can either bring their own horse or can use one of my school horses for a fee.

I dont think it would matter which certificate you are working on at the time, im just trying to figure out a way for it to become more cost effective for everyone and to provide a situation where we all may be able to assist each other.

I wont be charging a fee for this, im not looking to make money out of it, we will all just divide the cost of the coach educator services equally and pay directly to them on the days they come out.

I am personally doing my Level 1 at the moment but i dont think it would make a difference what level everyone is working on.

If you think its something you would be interested in participating in please contact me on 0433808071 or sam@encoreec.com.au.

It will be based in Dingley Village.

Just wondering how big is to big for these pony pads?

Having issues with the godkids saddle (she just does not fit and and finds it hard to wrap her legs around the horse and yes it was fitted by a saddle fitter to both her and the pony less then 6 months ago) after a few spills I have started to think she really can't ride in it and while we wait for a different saddle fitter to come out and recommend saddles I was wondering if she could go back and use the saddle pad for the odd ride? She is not heavy only 36kg but is also but TALL which is why we are having issues with her current saddle.

Just wondering how their fit differs and weather it would be a safe bet to get one and then have it fitted by a fitter.
