He has been spelling for 18months now, has cost me a fortune in treatments, has been very nearly put down on a few occasions, but it seems that his hock has FINALLY stablised itself and we're back to business!
I've been walking him 6 days/week for the last month, and today was the first time I asked him to throw in some short bursts of trot.
I must say, I am just so proud of how he handled himself, he has an unbelievable brain!
He is very much on the forehand, stiff, no back, choppy trot etc. but he's been out of work for so long, that all I wanted today was to have him trot off from my leg. The quality of movement will come as he builds strength. The quality of his walk however, made my heart sing. He walks for an 8, possibly 9 with some more work!
I have also stacked on the kilo's, and have ridden maybe twice in the last 8 months. So bare with my while I get back into it
