Well, I'll skip the looong boring bits and let you know that, we got the Farrier out who took off her shoes, and got out wonderful vet out for a vet check and other than the fact she has to goiters (sp?) where her neck meets her head. But with a little vitality plus and some seaweed meal there slowly but surly going way!
Yesterday I had a great ride on her! A rather long ride (long for us anyway) about 2 hours. Went out and caught her, was so happy that she was right near the gate as I had been dreading walking to the back of the paddock. (In a rather lazy mood today) Jumped on bareback (with a helmet
) and rode her back to the tack shed.
Tied her to the tree, unrugged her, saddled up and rode
after reading the thread about music going with the horses foot falls, took my ipod out for a test 'ride'. Rode down to the creak and considering she'd only been there once with other horses she did really well.
Crossed the creek and went up to the top paddock along the road. To get there you have to go through 3 gates and she did relativity good with all of them. Only got off to do one of them and this was due to no fault of her own, it was just because the rams were really close to the gate, and i was worried if something happened with her and shutting the gate they'd get out.
Rode a lap of the paddock with a slow stretched out gallop up a hill which was really nice and she enjoyed her self witch was good.
Went back through the creak no worried there, rode her up to the 'sporting/mounted games' area and did some bending practice. She went REALLY well I was very pleased. She's started 'weaving' more than turning between the poles which is good. One annoying thing was my phone holder kept getting caught on the poles
Then rode back up to the tack shed where a small jump is set up, so popped her over that a couple times, which was good a little lazy but that was only because it had been a long ride before hand.
Went and untacked, brushed her down, chucked her cotton back on and gave her her dinner. She woofed it down hehe
All in all a great night! Im REALLY looking forward to a ride with an old friend, who I haven't seen for AGGGGES tonight. I'll let you all know how we go and hopefully get some pics (I looove pics hehe)
