I almost cried a couple times that first day, but I've been able to keep it together. I have had him since he was 6 months old. I've done everything on this horse myself. He's trained the way I want and I know him inside and out. It just really stinks now that I finally graduated from optometry school, I no longer have a finished barrel horse to compete with.
Granted I am really excited about my new horse I bought (I'll have to make a post about him later when I have time), but I'm going through that "I-don't-know-this-horse-well-yet and I just-want-MY-horse-back and trained the way I want" new ownership phase.
I just bought some Equine Saver supplement that I was recommended by a friend. It worked for their horse to help with the pain, so I'lll give it a shot with Beau. Provided I can get Mr. Picky Eater to eat it.

It is not enough to know how to ride; one must know how to fall.
