I have decided after a lot of thinking and debating to retire Sheena Bean from showing. Her headshaking has not been getting much better with the mess, answering my greatest fears. It cannot be fixed. It is a stress reaction and she just can't handle it anymore. I rode her today and we just galloped and galloped for miles. She was happy and free.

The riding area is still much too wet, so i didn't ride Grace today. . .and she is coming into heat -_- she gets so attitudy and hates me touching her.
Sheena will always be a Eventer at heart ♥

.and she is coming into heat -_-
WOOT, and this is why I love geldings

E v e r y horse is good for something. You dont throw a whole life away just cause he's banged up a little...

Ok! I forgot to write yesterday, so a double dose!

Yesterday (April 29)
I rode Grace for the first time in a few days. I thought she might be a bit insane, and since it was a Sunday (like the day I got bucked off), and I was wearing new boots (yeah, I am that superstitious...)SO...I lunged her. She was really calm, so I only did about 5 minutes on each side. Then, I got on and warmed up, did some leg-yields and free walks. Then I trotted...I think we trotted for about 30 minutes straight, just working on all sorts of stuff; bending, circles, leg-yields, rein-less, etc. She was really awesome. One of our best rides in a while.

Today (April 30)
Didin't lunge today, just hopped on! Her flat was a little...tense and unresponsive at first. We worked through it, and had some really nice moments. We jumped, too. We started out a little launchy and fast, but I got her back and I realised that I wasn't taking her to the base of the jump. I was letting her just do what she wanted. Not good with a horse like her. My mom got some video, so I will be getting that onto YouTube and post it here!

So...Grace is not doing very well with the shot she got today. She is really stiff and is having a hard time bending her neck or eating off the ground. She is also grinding her teeth and is walking in small circles, as well as having a dull look and not kicking at me when I brushed her belly. Luckily, the vet was coming out today anyway and she said to give her some Banamine. She is better from the meds...

I am going to check on her in a few hours.

No riding today; it rained all day and soaked my riding area. :(
