Well Gidget got adjusted yesterday by a lady who does osteopath. Her neck was out and it took two times to get it fully adjusted. Gidget was so much happier afterwards and licked her lips :) The lady could tell my touching her body that she was worked in her life( she did think she was younger than 12). Anyways since said I could ride her right away I decided to ride her that evening on the track and do a lot of long trotting on a loose rein. She did great and her ears perked up. I also took her into the arena and she did the same. She kinda pinned them at first but Im guessing she was anticipating pain. I didn't lope her.
Today I went on a road ride and Gidget had lots of pep in her step and ears forward. I then went to ride with a friend and she was with a gelding. Gidget doesn't really care to ride with other horses for some reason..mainly geldings so she was being pi**y. We then went and trotted on the track and she pinned her ears but long trotted and even stretched down into the bridle for a few which she doesnt do. I loped and galloped her twice and she pinned her ears but was very forward and really picked up speed....I'm guessing maybe she just learned bad habits but isn't in pain? She doesn't mind being saddled until she is cinched up and I ordered a CSI pad...should be coming within the week so she will have one of the best quality pads and lots of comfort(tried one on her and it was great).
Tomorrow I am working on barrels and finishing my turns and just hanging out. I just wanted to update ppl and this is the only section on I post on
