Step away from the computer,
The new place that I have moved my horses to is new to starting up agistment, and therefore they are querying where they stand in regards to insurance. I know that my children and myself are covered through the PCAV & HRCAV, but he is still stressing that he will be liable if something happens. Can someone tell me what the responsibilities of the property owner are, and if they need to take out special insurance even if the agistees are covered?

Stark, Raving Bonkers
Of my old boys brand. He is a buckskin gelding I took on several months ago. He is about 14.3hh and is aged either 20 or 30 off side brands show 9 over 4. I presume he is a quarter horse but I could be wrong. Would really appreciate if someone could locate the brand (I've tried googling brands but couldnt find anything, clearly Im not doing it right!)

For those interested, who remember the ad I put up for him months ago, before I took him on, he came to me in very skinny, wormy condition. He is now fat, healthy, wormed, teeth done, feet trimmed, bloods all within normal range. I am very glad I have taken him on. he is worth every cent and has stolen my heart. he is a lovely, sweet old horse. I will post pics of him at some stage.


I've lost one horse that gleamed golden like the sunshine,
one horse that gleamed with the silver of the moonlight...

I've sold my saddle horse, retired my super dressage horse and leased my brood mares. I've sold my awesome float and now have some real treasures I just don't seem to be able to part with. Like the little pony double bridle I bought at 18 for $30 (heaps in those days) which is just so special and my PH pony dressage saddle.... does anyone else have problems downsizing? I've moved off our farm to the 'burbs and managing that OK but missing my lifestyle. I don't miss the endless work of pasture management or feeding up at dawn in the freezing rain but miss those faithful faces receiving their breaky....

Just wondering whether anybody has put a shower in the back of their float.

I am particularly interested in the installation of the shower base. I have seen a couple of variations including a steel shower base built into the floor, but I have also seen a fold up checker plate base which I am particulrarly interested in as it doesn't appear to require a great deal of installation. I saw a picture of this somewhere online, and simply can't find it again.

Any pictures of any examples would be most welcome.

I have a 16.3hh thats around 640kg. I have been putting in one tablespoon (20grams) into his feed. I was told today that it was not enough and I should up it to 100 grams which I think is a little too much.
How much should I feed?

another city barn saddleblanket, which got lots of comments how smart it looked and how nice on Flynn - Thanks to the lovely VH'er who kindly got this for me last year, I love it Very Happy

Bit hard to see, but Flynn had little red pony tails in his mane and then of course I had the red dress on.

Red overload, but I think he looked cute.

He was awesome yesterday, soo rapt with him Very Happy

Does anyone know if there are any public riding places around Mornington Peninsula, Cranbourne South etc?

I already know of Akoonah Park in Berwick and Iven's Reserve but hoping to find something a little closer.

Edited to clarify - not looking for an agistment with facilities, I already have those, looking for somewhere like an Akoonah Park or Ivens Reserve that have an arena but are public.

sending out feelers to see if any would be interested in buying any wooden base tack room items if i were to make and sell them. I havent sorted out anything but i was thinking along the line of:

<these are all to be wooden>

-tack shed shelving
-light weight wooden groom kit holder {with a handle and two split open compartments
-wooden tubs
- food storage bins

would anyone be interested if i were to sell healthy horse treats?

It would be great if people could put PICTURES below of what would interest them and also PRICES you would pay! Any other ideas on what to sell are welcome!

I am currently leasing a mare who is kept on Old
Coach road in a small paddock, in November I have my old horse coming back as she has just recovered from a bad injury from 2013 from jumping the paddock fence and getting her leg caught.

Along the track that I walk along to get to the paddock there is a giant house with a small arena and nice paddocks, I think it is on a road called Allback road? I'm not sure though, it's around Old Coach road and there are lots of horses there so I assume they aggistment but I can't find any way to contact them.

I think the fences at the current place I keep this mare are not good enough to hold my old horse and I need aggistment that is walking distance.

So I was wondering does anyone know this house? Aggist there, have numbers etc? Would be really greatly appreciated ! Smile

My friend just called me quite upset. There is a new tenant next door that is agisting horses (6) on 5 acres. Twice now my friend has had to fix the boundary fence because their horses have lent over to eat the grass and snapped the wire. She was away last week and so was her horse and prior to bringing horse back she only has one she checked the boundary fence again and sure enough it was busted again, so she went next door and no one home so she contacted the real estate that manages the property to inform them of the situation re boundary fence. Well my friend copped a barrage of verbal abuse from the tenant stating that her horses did not do the damage etc plus the swearing even though my friend tried to tell her that her horse wasn't there the tenant did not accept that. My friend said she will pay for the fence to be fixed I said no she should call agent and the owner of the property should pay half or should the tenant ? What are people's thoughts ? my friend also mentioned that they were agisting 6 horses on 5 acres to the agent. Her husband is not due back from the mines till 5 th of September normally he would do fences.
She is normally a quiet mouse of a person and this has rattled her.

It isnt a competition but horse completes a test- is judged- you receive feedback/training and then complete test again.

Have just started riding again (doing lessons) after the last 8 years of having no horses. Will have a horse to ride in November, but wanting to get some hours into my legs before then to get back into the swing of things.

Wanting to find someone to ride with (that has a horse that needs riding). Upto 45 mins from Geelong.
I finish work at 4pm, Can go in afternoons or weekends.

When I was riding competitively was showing, Grade 2 PC Dressage and eventing.

Ok guys, well I'm now 15 and I'm looking for a horse related job.... Anything to do with horses would be great just so I can earn a but of cash Smile I'd only be looking for $30-$40 for the day I work. A Saturday would be perfect for me I can start early morning or in the afternoon Smile

I'd be happy to pick up poo, collect your horse for you, groom it, tack it up, warm the horse up I can even ride any horses that need excersicing. I have been riding for nearly 10years and I'm an intermediate rider. Of course you wouldn't let me ride a horse unless you know my riding. So you could come out to my agisment just so you can see me riding my horse so you know what rider I am. Otherwise I'm happy just caring for your horse. I would even be happy to come to a competition to be your strapper Smile

If anyone has anything available not to far from Langwarrin/ Frankston/ Mornington Peninsula would be awesome 😀😀 please PM me 🐴🐴


You ony find freedom on the back of a horse ❤️💜💚💙

I am currently on a waiting list for Judy but it won't be in the MP area. She's booked up until end Sept, but I thought it might be worthwhile to see if anyone is also interested and could contact Judy and that may persuade her to travel if she gets the numbers.

I am only posting this as I understand that there are many people on here who use Judy so thought it might be worthwhile and it would also be great for me if I didn't have to travel too far to get an appt.
