No doubt, we all have quick and easy ways of doing all sorts of things with our horses (often, they are the inexpensise ways too!). Infact, these tricks are so instinctive, it's sometimes even difficult to identify what they are! But they are fascinating to share. So wrack your brains for those little gems and spill the beans!

Quick, easy & cheap ways of doing things
As far as I know, citronella was banned from use in fly sprays by the EU about five years ago - they also banned the use of lavender and eucalyptus from insecticides, However, you can still use these oils as a coat spray (which just happens to repel flies as well).

Mud dreadlocks on feathers!!
Baby oil in a spray bottle works well and is marginally cheaper than pig oil depending on where you shop.

Top tip
If your horse loses a shoe and your farrier can’t come out for a few days try applying strips of duct tape to the foot.

Steaming hay
I took this idea off another forum (oops) 6 of us using 2 dustbins and wallpaper strippers, but it was taking forever to steam 6 nets, 2 at a time.

Tips when riding your horse bareback
Riding bareback is an excellent exercise for the rider and, for those of us of a ‘certain’ age, something we spent hours doing when we were younger – it is so much easier to ride your horse in from the field in his headcollar than to actually walk beside him.

Saving money
I've been cutting my own hair for nearly ten years now, I'm often asked where did I get it done as it looks so nice.

Friends in Canada swear by spray cooking oil, super easy to apply as well.
