The only reason why this is in here is because I need some opinions on shock ruduceing!
And heres the reason why!
As everyone knows chance was abused the first 3 years of her life [shes 5 now] and shes very sensative. Well I was brushing chance before my ride and I shocked her nose and she FLEW backwards broke the cross ties then I was like okay... and hooked her back up and told my friend to put her on QUICK release... what does she do.... Hook her to ******* wall!!! [I didnt notice at first]
So I was petting her nose and I think my coat shocked her so she FLEW backwards once more and she got the other side broken but the other side would budge so she was flaying around she fell to the floor and twisted her neck then it ripped the metal from the wall! [THANK GOD]
Watching her go threw this made me go int a crying fit because I COULDNT help her! It would have been WAY to dangerous to get inbetween that no matter how much I wanted to go.
I ran after her and the look in her eyes and she looked at me like I did it! Almost like... and I trust you with my life??? I put on leather gloves and hugged her head sooooooo tight like crying and told her hoowww sorry I was then the next 20 mins I wouldn't touch her and wouldn't let her touch me. I didn't trust myself to touch her.
So she started smileing and showing off then licked my hand and I was leaning against the wall and she came over to me and started rubbing on me with her head almost like wow mom okay I know you didnt mean to!
I had to have my friend tack her up for me, so then I bridled her and she took the bit soo nicely! It ended REALLY well and I tried to continue like nothing happened. I checked her poll and her legs ect and it seemed fine but you know never know ... till later..
All the way home I was blameing myself and crying thinking about how I could have killed my horse!!
BUT shes NOT going back on cross ties till I figure out how to get rid of the shock! ... I got dryer sheets to rub her down with but idk if that will help!
I need ideas!
Ill check her before my lessons and if she seems really sore theres not gonna be any riding.
