Our ride tonight went very well!
Indie started out quite grumpy, ie: pinning her ears as I tightened the girth and when Romeo passed by her. She also forgot how to stand still.
Must've thought she was on vacation!
She was a little stiff at first but showed no issues at the walk, backing up or trot. We just walked at first for a good twenty five minutes and did some backing up. Once she was going well, we tried trotting her. It was really smooth and she showed no signs of being uncomfortable, she seemed really happy to be back at it.
No canters, but perhaps next week if all goes well. The ride tonight brought down the swelling quite a bit so I think it benefitted her in the long run.
As a sidenote, I think we are building a nice bond.
She always peeks out her stall at me and she always tries looking back at me on the cross ties.. and she likes trying to poke me with her nose. She'll stretch right out and try to reach me. Posted via Mobile Device
