EVEN THOUGH IT’S win­ter, you’ve made the de­ci­sion to treat your­self to a spot of com­pet­ing at a lo­cal venue. Or maybe you’ve booked a les­son or al­lo­cated an hour to take your horse for a hack with friends. You’re ex­cited… The day ar­rives and you can’t wait. Then, as you greet your horse at his field gate, re­al­ity sets in. He’s cov­ered head to toe in mud, even un­der his rug (how does he do that?) and his mane and tail are sport­ing dread­locks any Bob Mar­ley fan would be proud of. Cue hor­ri­fied star­ing at said horse and pan­icked groom­ing kit rum­mag­ing — you didn’t leave enough time for this. There’s noth­ing for it, this sit­u­a­tion calls for pro­fes­sional help. Turnout 999: what’s your emer­gency? Th­ese steps will­help!
