Spillers Weight Clinic

Happy New Year 2018 and what a good event to start our year.

We are starting the year off with a Spillers weight clinic on the 7th January 2018.  For your allotted time slot please do see Olivia Thomas.

This always proves to be a very popular event with a very good turnout.

This is a fantastic opportunity to get some one to one advice on feeding your horse or pony which can be a mind field. It will also tell us a lot about the health of our horses and ponies. The last weight clinic was a great success 

 

Rocky being weighed and looking fabulous

The horses are condition scored first before they go on the scales. They look at the fat deposits on certain parts of the body. The neck, withers, loins, tail head, shoulder, and ribs.

This is scored from 1 being poor up to 9 being extremely fat.

The ideal we would like our horses to be would be 5 which is a moderate covering of fat. 

The horses then get weighed, they discuss each horse with its owner and you will be asked a few questions  like age, how long we have owned our horse and what they are being fed at the moment and his work load.   

You will be given a record card of the weight and condition score for us to keep as a record and a £5 Spillers voucher.

 

Happy New Year 2018  Progress Report On Our Menage

We are progressing nicely with our menage extension and it is looking really good. We can now see just how big it is going to be and it is really exciting.

We are hoping that the weather will be kind to us so that we can crack on with the job!   

Keep an eye on the notice board and news posts for our clinics and do be sure to get your name down early to avoid disappointment.  We will be having some new instructors as well as our favourite ones! These are aimed at beginners right the way up to our more advanced riders.

We will also be planning some demonstrations and competitions for our liveries. The last demonstration back in July by Nik & Fig was just mind blowing. To see it again click here
