Oh my gawwddd!!!! I'm sooo proud of Victress. She is an amazing horses and amazes me every time I ride her. Today we did a PERFECT 4th level test, and had some gorgeous tempi changes and perfect canter pirouettes!!! Can't wait to ride again tomorrow... Show season, here I come :).
I forgot to update, but the gelding did end up being put down. They were able to bring him home to be PTS which was great, but it was also extremely sad because I was working that night so I watched the whole thing.
It's amazing how people come together in times of grief. Never have I ever seen so many people at the barn than the evening Imp was put down. His belly was full of Nicker Makers and carrots when he layed down for the last time, and the sun came out right as he went. Sounds Disney-ish, but that's how it was. Also, the day he was fatally injured was the same day that the foal was born. One beautiful life left, but another one entered.
That horse was just shy of his 8th birthday and he was born on the farm. It was a sad night, and the kind that really make you appreciate every moment you have with your own horses. Posted via Mobile Device
