Horse Riding Tips - To Help Improve Your Riding ...
Top Riding Tip for Spring :
As the show season starts you may find you want to take your own water supply with you in your horsebox or trailer but don't have a suitable container. Just place a standard black rubbish bag inside a bucket and fill with fresh water. Then tie a knot in the top to make sure it doesn't spill everywhere during your journey.
Top Riding Tip for Summer :

Crazy About Cobwebs?
Are cobwebs driving you crazy?
Knock them all down and then wash the walls with a Lysol solution. The mixture doesn't have to be very strong but will discourage spiders and repel flys. One wash down should last you all summer.
