    FINALLY got to ride BOTH horses again!

    I am sooo stoked!
    on Sunday I finally got to ride ozzie again!

    i haven't been able to ride him since April. Early April my previous horse deliberately double barrelled me in my face. So I was out for at least a week then I started trialling a new horse to buy, got rid of the other horse marco. Then may ozzie a row of barbed wire fell off the fence into ozzies paddock and my poor old man (18 now) got it wrapped around his leg! So I shifted him to the property that I bought my new horse barney from. I was battling uphill getting the wound to heal by following the vets advise, in the end I asked the property owner and vet nurses on the property, then when I had a glimpse of hope that I would be able to ride him soon....he got an abscess in his hoof!!!! 1 and 1/2 weeks yarded hi leg healed great (i will know for next time) and the abscess FINALY healed.
    so 1 week later I had barney booked in for Bowen therapy (a follow up) I rode barney then he got the Bowen then I got on ozzie :)

    now last year around may he decided he doesn't want to jump anymore, so I had a tiny cross rail jump grid up for barney so I thought I would get ozzie to trot through it, not expecting him to jump (i forgot spurs LOL) as I couldn't barley get him to MOVE! Lol it was like riding a riding school pony that's dead to the leg, I got 3 cante4r strides then he would WALK! LOL so when I took him through the grid he strided and JUMPED perfectly, I was amazed! I was in my dressage saddle at dressage length but it didn't affect me at all. So I did that a few times then took him over the big cross (60cms) thinking he was just going to stop at it, nope ears pricked and jumped effortlessly!
    we had maybe a 10minute ride LOL poor boy was puffed!

    soooo had to share that with everyone! Sooo happy that I can ride my favourite horse again (don't tell barney). I have owned ozzie for almost 6 years and the time I bought him I was sooo timid and expected to be chucked off every chance (bad horse before him) so after 2 1/2 years I was FINALLY comfortable on him! If I didn't find him at that stage I would have probably never ridden again.
    can't wait to get back on him again!

    That is AWESOME! So glad you got to ride your horses again. I know what it's like to have a hurt horse and it takes FOREVER to be able to ride again! Good job :)
