Coach Insurance ( other than EA) ?? [message #3267986] Wed, 06 May 2015 08:13

I'm about to do the ring around for insurance to see if its viable to start coaching again.
I have NCAS qualifications but I live in an area with very few EA comps ( I'm sticking to HRCAV and having fun) so I just can't justify the cost of membership and coach insurance with EA.

Would love to hear from anyone who coaches with insurance sourced outside EA. Most ( if not all ) potential clients would be HRCAV or PC.

Currently have farm insurance with RACV so will phone them first but also on the list is AON, Affinity, Westfarmers and Elders.

Any ideas would be appreciated ( save me hours on the phone only to hit a dead end )

l have many tons of Malt Combings and a steady supply of quality Oaten Hay. ln order to use the Combings l need to mix it wet with chaff, a local farmer and former horse trainer swears by his Hammer mill and sold off his chaff cutter years ago.
His horses won many races and his Show sheep have dominated the Royal Melbourne Show in years gone by. My horses are mostly just Rescues that were heading to Echuca but l would like them to get the most out of what l feed them, they have limited grass, one horse to 6 acres of unimproved, sandy pasture.
l have the option to buy a Hammer Mill or a Chaff Cutter, what would you buy? Smile

I have been given the specs and spoken to the property owner of a Agistment property on palmers rd, that sounds great and closer to home; which is a big factor for me.

I believe this may be the only Agistment place on that rd and would like any reviews of the place as I want to make sure it's the right place for me and my horses

My gelding has a small but in a bad spot fetlock wound (think chunk missing) but is sound. Has been bandaged for a week and I was thinking of trying derma gel (after running it past my vet of course, I will end up doing what she says). Im just after any feedback from anyone that's actually tried it on their own horses?

Anyone had a horse injure the frog of hoof and how long did it take to heal? I've had hoof injuries before of varying degrees and anything from coronet band will take 6mths to grow out, butt one of my boys sliced half his frog away about 4 weeks ago and a small section is still an open wound, same size as it was originally. It's healthy and he's sound again, any ideas how long it will take to resolve?

We are currently upgrading to a gooseneck float. We have done a lots of research and have narrowed it down to 3 companies. One is Attitude floats. Does anyone in Vic have one, what is your opinion on them. Happy to receive PM regarding any negatives. I can't afford to make a mistake when we make this purchase. If someone has one in Victoria are you happy for us to come and have a look at it. We want to get underneath and have a good look at it structurally. We will be towing 4 horses and safety is number 1 above looks and bells and whistles.

I found this video to be incredibly informative, so I thought I'd share Smile no matter what hoof care practice you choose, those video shows what we should be looking for in a healthy foot. It's very interesting, although is a little long!

Anyone have a cheap way of moving sand from one side of arena too the other.

Arena harrowed regularly with home made harrow- but due to the slight slope it tends to graduate to one side, especially after rain

Nb not my property so need something simple/cheap

Hi Everyone, I just wanted to get some feedback on an issue I am experiencing with my TB Gelding.
He has had the Tie Back operation a couple of years ago from his racing days and has been off the track for the last year. In this time though he coughs a lot. We have changed his feed with expert advice but I find that he is still coughing at the start of rides and sometimes during.
The severity of the cough can be different from just clearing to must stop and really cough.
Just wondering if anyone else has this issue?

My farrier has been injured and is going to be out of action for a while and I can't let our horses feet go.

Can anyone recommend a reliable farrier who will come to Drummond North. I would prefer someone who is experienced as one of our horses doesn't have the greatest feet and has natural balance shoes on the front due to his dishy feet.

Feel free to inbox details rather than leave them on here.

Just looking for a bit of information. My horses are currently living away from home in a large paddock. This paddock is not an agistment property it's just a paddock.
What I would like to know is there any insurance that I can get to cover if the horses were to get out on the road and cause damage.
Hopefully it never happens, probably just being paranoid Smile

If you have done the first one... then you can do the advanced one! Yay!
The 4 day one isn't going ahead, but there is now a 2 day advanced course run on the same day as a normal clinic- but we have 10 people in an advanced group, running same way as last time. Great news is because they don't have all the transport costs, it's $300 for 2 days!! Dates are 11 and 12 March (weekday) to be held at Mt Rowan indoor (just outside Ballarat). If you have already booked into a clinic you can do both, or change into the advanced group- please contact Sandi (who you booked through) if you'd like to swap groups, and to book advanced you can go directly to Double Dan Ballarat on facebook and message Sandi Whitfield, or contact me and I can give you details. Please pass on info to anyone else who may be interested,
