Oh wow! So here goes.
I have a loan horse called Todd and he's 9 years old, 15.1hh. We make such a great team and I love him SOOOO MUCH. His owner wants to sell him but waay over 3000 and I can't afford that as I only found out a month ago. Because of his many sharers he is cared for by loads AND a riding school horse so he finds it hard to trust a single person. Here's the worst bit, I won't have him for much longer and I have only had him for 1 month. He's supposed to be sold in September/December time, I hope the price is too much and he isn't bought! I can't believe I am going to lose my darling boy, he's taught me sooo much about becoming a better rider, I am going to miss him so much. I am hoping that I can get a loan as quickly as possible after, horses keep me complete. Do I start searching in September and talk to my mum? It's devastating.

If that's her show name, why don't you just call her Sunny?

Being homeschooled isn't bad! I've been homeschooled my whole life, and I like it a lot! And if it doesn't work out for you, maybe your dad would let you switch back.

PLEASE READ!!!!! HORSE ISSUE!!!

Ok so 1.) I want to go bit shopping, but because my horse is a riding school horse I am unable to take the bit with me as people will be using him. Do I measure the bit, if so in inches or centimetres? He finds it uncomfortable on his teeth as it clangs so I think he needs something softer on his mouth. At the moment he has a single jointed snaffle bit and I can't remember whether he has an eggbutt snaffle or loose ring. What does everyone think about getting the Flexi mouth in a snaffle form?

2.) I am also going stirrup shopping, some advice? Never been.

3.) My horse was taught how to walk back when I walk back and now he does it constantly in his stable and when I go to back him. I have been told to ignore it and yes this works but I usually have to follow him round in a complete circle before he stops. I can't hit him or punish him in anyway because he's not doing it out of naughtiness, he thinks he's doing right.
