new chapter

well it is a new chapter in my life, as I am not living with the people who had horses now,

So now that I am horseless, which doesn't worry me as I can afford lessons again, I am joining a riding lesson school, which cost $55 for 45 minutes, which is expencive and hopefully worth it, I have my first lesson on Thursday 11.30am YAY!

Remind me- how long have your been riding Miover? I rode my guy the day after he arrived at the barn I have him at. For my guy, since I had been riding him at his old place, it actually helped settle him in as it was part of his 'normal' routine for me to groom, tack him up and ride. Even though he was at a strange new place, me sticking to the routine we already had was relaxing and helpful for him. My guy is also a follower type horse, so having someone he trusted (me) tell him what to do allowed him to relax and just follow the leader for a while rather than having to be hypervigilant and worry about all the new, scary things.

If you'll have help, definitely chat with them about the best way to settle Miover in- what works for one horse doesn't always work for another. Some horses do need time to quietly settle, others are best put to work right away- just depends on the individual horse and humans involved. :)

So, uh, when might we get some pictures? ;)

Miover is in his new home..now I am concerned he is dropping weight..thankfully he will out of quarintine sometime next week, farriar is comming next week.

He will be sharing a paddock with 1 other horse which may help him to stop cribbing!!!

I want him on 24/7 hay my only concern is I don't want the other horse eating his supply since its at my cost,

I don't know if im just worrying for nothing. I don't even know if I should get him a cribbing collor as he is eating the wood aswel

This is the quarintine area that's now destroyed by rain and now has no grass ugh

I can't ride him or work with him until he is out of quarintine..asoon as we can it will be back to lunging, and swimming if its nice day

Had an awesome first lesson with new coach, we did alot of walking, halting, backing up, he listened, was calm,

He spooked when coach was fixing something and leadrope went on his nose, he broke the bale twne..prior to that he knocked over a huge metal gate fence, and it dropped with loud bang, he didnt even flinch lol
Lucky as I was picking his hoofs.
Tuesday, is my next lesson, I will be riding in the round pen yay very excitid!
