This weekend the country has been on the receiving end of some pretty horrible weather. Rain. Wind. More Rain. More Wind. It's been relentless!
As I got off my horse this morning, soaked to the skin, bedraggled and generally wondering if it's time to take up another hobby (let's face it, this time of year it's a question we ask ourselves daily!). The one part of me that was toasty warn dry and comfortable were my ears.
Introducting the Riding Hat Ear Warmers.
What did I ever do before I rode wearing these? These ear muffs are designed to fit any riding hat or helmet. And they really do provide the best comfort and warmth for your rides on these cold winter days.
The clocks went back last night and for horse owners across the country the dreaded dark nights are here. Dark nights mean less time to enjoy your horses and ponies in the daylight and what can sometimes seem like a daily race agains the clock to beat the onset of dark!
We have got 5 ways to help you beat the clock this Winter.
1. Make all your haynets for the week made up at the weekend if you can, saving precious time during the week.
2. Another way to save time is to meal prep, you might be used to doing this for yourself but have you ever considered making a week's worth of meals for your horse?
3. Bank up their beds. If you can, and your horse isn't going to trash or eat the extr...

What a competiton we have witnessed over the last few days of the Landrover Burghley Horse Trials.
After a tough XC phase, the final show jumping phase had the nation on the edge of their seats as all of the top three riders had a pole down. Pippa Funnell walked away with the highly coveted trophy with her horse MGH Grafton Street, a massive 16 years after her last win at Burghley.
Both she, Piggy French (who came second with Vanir Kamira) and Oliver Townend (third with Ballaghmor Class) all had a pole in the final phase as the competition went down to the wire!
Pippa’s initial response to her win was both self-depreciating and analytical: “I’m really embarrassed by that round and i...
