She's been off cough free for about 4 or 5 days now and so far no issues. But it's not hard to get so if I need to I can always pick some up.
I have slowed down the riding mainly because well working one full time job, one part time job and going to college full time seems to take a lot of my time lol plus it's dark by 5 and I don't get to the barn til 4:30 most days. She has picked up weight in the last two weeks though. I rode bareback yesterday and I can get into that one spot where I can't feel her spine again. Bought another blanket too so I can make sure it is always clean and dry and that she has the right weight on.
But with slowing down riding comes an unruly pain in my butt. But for being in season she did pretty well last night. Wednesday night she tried bolting and bucking though. At least she hasn't reared in about a month so we are getting somewhere.
But I can feel her rounding her back in the canter and sometimes in the trot and she has been keeping her head much lower so I think she's starting to use those back muscles.
And for fun here's a picture from last night.
