Suprise benefit of not riding...

I have been off my horse for a long 10 weeks due to ankle surgery. Once I was out of a cast and into a walking boot , I was able to get to the barn. I have spent the last several weeks doing ground work, playing games and teaching him to work with vienna reins.

You know what, we have had a blast, no pressure , no agenda......
And we both learned a lot. It really enhanced our relationship, so hoping it will carry over to riding. What a nice surprise, when you expect something to be so bad and its turns out to be so good

That's great to hear! Isn't it amazing what can get done when there are no deadlines?

Yep. Had the same thing happen when I bought my gelding. He was a two-year-old basically unhandled stud colt. We did A LOT of groundwork. Then I fractured my ankle just as he was getting broke, so we did even MORE groundwork. His trust in me is amazing now.
