new horse under saddle

Well I've started doing bits and pieces with gypsy. She wouldnt stand still to mount in the beginning and was very very impatient so I've been working on mounting and then just sitting there and getting off and on again. I havent been doing any real riding as I felt her back was out and have been waiting for the chiro to come out. All I've done really is gently start applying leg pressure getting her to move away from it etc I've also been doing 'stuff' in the saddle to desinsitise her a bit. Everything freaks her out so I've been working on doing things like playing with my stirrup leathers etc to get her used to stuff going on. She's doing well with that.

She has this thing about throwing her head up and then right down even just standing there. Hence why I figured it was her back. I havent hopped on her again since these photos as her behaviour led me to believe that she was in some sort of discomfort. That and she's a less then well broke tb lol

So anyway the chiro came out this morning and I recieved the 'beyond the track' book I ordered so hopefully we can get on with it all now :) in the pic with her head up im not pulling or anything but the chiro said she was out through her poll, her back and her hips so that's probably where that came from.

Ill keep you all posted on how she goes :)

She does look nice in her tack. I can't wait to get her in show tack and have her all plaited up. She going to be so pretty ;)

The official diagnosis from the chiro was she was out in her poll hence her dislike of being haltered, bridled or brushed there. She was also out of whack right where I would be sitting in the saddle. That also would contribute to the head throwing. She also had something out around her croup that was putting pressure on her kidneys, urinary system and consequently putting pressure on other areas. I noticed when she pee'd the other day that it was sort of milky and she looked like she was straining a little. I was going to call the vet out if the chiro didnt know what it was but he said that was more than likely the result of the back being out.

He feels with a few days to recover from the clunking she should be good as new. Yay :)
