So, finally got out to ride yesterday after a week of rain then working every nice day(!!) and Drambuie was not quite right
. I don't know if it is from the fall in the hole which is the last time I was able to ride him or if something else is going on. He was tripping almost constantly when walking, and nearly went down twice!
Trotting he was better and I got him up to a 9.2 mph trot without difficulty, but he wouldn't keep it up downhill. He would slow to a really careful walk downhill. Couple of times I had to jerk him up by the reins to keep him from falling while walking! Jeez.
I just stayed in the pasture riding him, which is good considering, but I am very, very worried about him. Only rode for 1.78 miles before giving up.
I'm going to give him another week off, and if he is not better, will carry him to the top lameness vet at Coosa Valley in Pell City.
So glad you all are getting to ride! Keep the pics coming!!
Ps - My schedule is fixed and I have every-other weekend off again!! Yippee!!
