Springtime Feeding

Louie is a good doer when it comes to his condition and feeding regime. And even though he's suffered briefly from ulcers in the past, I keep a very simple approach to his feed all year round. I find it gives Louie everything that he needs, nutritionally, and it gives me the easy flexibility to add or remove energy as I need.

He has two feeds per day, with the same in each - 1x cup dry of Allen & Page Fast Fibre, 1/2 scoop of Dengie's Alfa A Oil, and 1x cup of Top Spec Joint Balancer. He was also on Top Spec's Calmer until February this year.

Saddle Substitutions

I think it's fair to say that the world is split when it comes to spending time in the saddle at the moment - some have chosen not to ride, some have chosen to continue to ride, and others sadly can't make it to their yards & barns to see their four-legged friends. However, even those that are continuing to ride, there's been a lot of adjustments made to their regular work plans - being more sensible, avoiding unnecessary risks and perhaps even reducing the number of times that they are riding per week.

But fear not...you can still get your weekly fix (& your daily exercise!) thanks to some of the fun & slightly quirky initiatives taking place across social media! Here's just a few I've found...

6 Equestrian Things To Do During Covid-19

Whether you're usually a competitive professional rider or someone who enjoys just a casual hack out a couple of times a week, equestrian life has temporarily changed for us all, and in my opinion post about equestrian life during Covid-19 I shared how I felt about it all... But no matter how differently we all feel about the current situation, we'll all have more time on our hands than usual, so here are 6 things that can keep you busy for the time being.

March Round Up

Well, it feels like blinking ages since the start of the month, and I don’t think anyone can disagree, it’s been the most strange month ever! I’m two weeks into full-time working at home, along with Andrew, sitting staring at the same four walls all day long, with the saving grace of needing to sort Louie each morning & evening.
