I havent rode since my knee surgery 5 weeks ago and the only horsey-stuff I've been able to do was a few lunging sessions with Squiggy. They had been going good, until today.
It's like... one step forward and then 20 steps back. She was such a nice horse when she was 3... so nice... and then she truned four and then something happened and I've been trying so hard to get her back to how she was... but every little bit of progress has been followed by something stupid.
I've been trying since early in Spring... and we've made so little progress since... it's embarassing.
The icing ont he cake was when I tried to lunge her a bit today before getting on and riding a bit for the first time in 5 weeks. I saddled her and the second we worked up to a trot, she got the grumpy face and started bucking. And so I tried like 3 times each way.... and the same thing happened.
Needless to say, I didnt get to ride.
It's been one awful year.
