So today I went to a gymkhana with Selena. She gets kinda bound up the more boots I put on her so I've been trying to refrain from overdoing it...My Mom suggested today I take her bell boots off. I did, thinking it would all be fine. She ran four events without a hitch and was a lot more freed up and a lot faster.
I took her in for biwrangle, she smoked the fastest run she's ever made, and when I walk out I notice she's limping. I immediately get off and take her away from the others. Then I find this:
The one time I don't put bell boots on her is the one day she over reaches. :(
We wrapped her leg up with some gauze, vet wrap, and wound spray and left her at the barn with Ruger for the night. I'll go back and check on her tomorrow.
Just thought I'd share so maybe you can learn from this mistake. She will never be ridden or ran without bell boots again. I feel so bad for my main girl.
