Well, had a hiccup in getting my main mount, the spotted saddle pony, ready for fifties this fall. On a WALKING trail ride with a friend on our main training trail - she strained a tendon in lower front leg. Wasn't lame at a walk, but showed it at slow gait.

Used my old tightening/cooling mud under wrap for 48 hours. Swelling and lameness is gone. Leaving a wrap on her in pasture for the next few days. Playing it day-by-day as to when I'll bring her back into training. But it'll be in the footed flat arena for at least a month before I dare take hills again. (Pasture is fairly flat too)

So my recently rescued TWH and SSH are now my primary mounts. (SSH is actually daughter's back up)

Now I've got to figure out how to carry ladder at big South Fork to get on these two big horses bareback.......

so sorry to hear about the tendon!! horses are such frustrating things when it comes to injuries.

maybe you need to teach the new kids to bow and let you mount that way!

There is no joy equal to that found on the back of a horse.
