Soooo much has happened recently and Iím really sorry I havenít been writing but there is only so much time in a day and Iíve got horses and school, anyways. Iím really happy to have Chinga back and Iím starting to settle into my new routine. His really liking his new home with all his new horsie friends and his really liking the fact that his now got a stable; that he can go in and out of whenever he pleases. Havenít really ridden Jazz much but now since itís the weekend I plan to ride them both. I learnt she doesnít like sunscreen on her face Ė she has white markings.
Chinga, well. His finally 100 % sound after a very long, stressful week I managed to get him moving back on his feet with his new flashy shoes on. Though, since he spent so long on unplanned spell with minimal human contact all his manners and skills on the ground have seemed to disappear.
You tie him up, he freaks out and pulls back. Spray bottles are now scary, leading involves prancing and gates are for pushing. BUT even over the past week Iíve had him back continuous work with him and reminding him the correct way of things is quickly showing his manners return, of course. He still has a long way to go. We all expected some issues with his manners. Iím confident I can handle the issues that we are having and do not believe they are dangerous.
On the up side his really enjoying being home and Iím very happy to have him home. Iím also excited to know that Iím able to ride him tomorrow. I plan on just walking him around as his only just come off an injury. Also chances are his forgotten most things he knows about riding manners too. Iím pretty sure Iíll be able to bring the camera out and get some shots of him Behaving for our little riding adventure tomorrow.
Chinga's become more confident with his feet and is starting to become relaxed with me working with them, although I'm unsure how he will go for a farrier since last time he acted alot worse then he did for me. Luckily I have a good farrier who's got lots of experience and is always kind towards Chinga, which I'm sure Chinga will realize quickly.
Weíve organized a feeding routine, which means I donít have to get up and feed every morning and I feed the other horses some mornings and afternoons and the other girls do a few of my morning feeds. Which is nice, because that means some mornings I get at least half a sleep in.. sorta.
Thatís really it for now, so much more to write about but I have to go ride and lunge the horses.
Lots of love,
Sir Success. Eventer.
