Nothing beats the feeling of having them β€˜with you’ πŸ€©πŸ™ŒπŸ» At least we’re halfway there ~ Now we just to put it all together and bring it out in the test! If it were easy, it would be boring! ✨ β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€” #forelockandfringe #teamequissimo

Hats are harder to fit whereas headbands just look good on everyone! Plus this one is sparkly! β–ͺ️ @houseofmontar Sophie Gilet ~ Errrrrr, made for me?! I’ve had my eye on this gilet for the longest time now. On the last count I probably own around 30 gilets but none of which have that super high, snuggly neck πŸ”₯ ▫️ @marktoddcollection Pro Stable Rug ~ Rem spends as much time as possible out in the field so getting decent, quality turnout tugs has always been the priority. It’s definitely time to upgrade his indoor wardrobe. This is perfect as it’s not too thick and has ZERO neck (πŸ™ŒπŸ») #BestGetSaving #FeelingSpendy #teamequissimo
Popped a couple of the farm jumps on our hack this evening! He was absolutely loving it!!

Hands up who thought that adding electrolytes to your horses diet was just something you did during the summer/warmer weather? Anyone else? I can’t possibly be the only one?! I was 100% guilty of thinking this until I got the chance to chat with the very friendly and incredibly knowledgable team at @omegaequine πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ–€β€οΈ β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€” β–ͺ️ Regardless of the season horses still lose salts (electrolytes) through sweat. So, if they’re working hard enough to generate even a slight sweat, electrolytes should be fed. Of course, when put so simply it seems like a no brainier and you feel rather silly for thinking otherwise! πŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ β–ͺ️ Who knew that electrolytes are also lost through faeces?! At the risk of sounding totally useless, I didn’t have a clue! A healthy gut is something we’ve had to work pretty hard for with Remmi. 90% of the time those issues are under control but there are certain times (stressful situations/show days/changes of season) when he has a bit of a flair up. It’s great to feel confident that any electrolytes lost this way will be replaced and will keep Rem on top top form πŸ‘πŸ» #ElectrolyteCovert β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€” #fedonomega

It’s a good’un πŸπŸ’›πŸ‚ #forelockandfringe The October @forelockandfringe box did not disappoint! Without a doubt the #TopTreat in this box has to be the @miasuki portable charger πŸ™ŒπŸ» For someone who potentially spends more time on their phone than they should this couldn’t be anymore perfect! It’s a lot less bulky and more sleek than the big, green brick I currently cart around with me. As for the other goodies, it goes without saying how fab/useful they all are. Naturally, the prosecco and the fudge lasted all of 2 hours before being devoured πŸ₯‚#ThePerfectPairing πŸ‘πŸ» Thumbs up to the new packaging too! Not a dent in sight when this box arrived, have you reinforced them with steel?!
Taking shelter from the rain this afternoon 🌧 We just had a quick blast around the farm today, nothing spectacular but the absolute best cure for jet lag πŸ’€ #31HoursAwakeAndCounting β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€” #forelockandfringe #teamequissimo
I’ve fallen in ❀️.... With a pair of riding tights!!

I said all I wanted was a nice snap πŸ“Έβœ¨ Remmi was just fabulous today! Really relaxed, super chilled and he really let me ride him πŸ™ŒπŸ» Our lack of test riding showed; my circles were a bit big and not really circles, broke in our med trots, broke in canter, we trotted too early basically we just gave away an easy couple of marks here and there which is pretty expensive with 3 judges! Ended up on a score just shy of 64% so definitely not our best. Well, I’d say it definitely wasn’t β€˜MY’ best, I let him down today by being a bit ring rusty as he was ON FIRE πŸ”₯ Positives ~ We qualified, we did it and we got a pretty lovely pic! πŸ’™πŸ’š #Petplan #AreaFestivals #HelloWinterTraining #MoreOutingsNeeded #fuelledbyfibre β€”β€”β€”β€”β€” #forelockandfringe #teamequissimo
