howdy y'all could use some advice
I have a 19 year old mare. We used to do all sorts of riding from trail riding to barrel racing. About a year and a half ago, she foundered and I have been working on helping her recover. At my last farrier appointment, he told me that he had cut away the last of the damaged hoof. I rode her quite a bit last summer, but now that winter has set in, it has become difficult to ride. When I do ride, it feels as if my mare has got the energy and spunk that she used to have. I was wondering if it is realistic for me to think about barrel racing recreationally this summer, or maybe team penning?
