I have not been on here in a little bit, so I see I missed quite a bit. My grandfather passed away early morning on the 8th. We all knew it was coming, but it does not make it any easier.
I took the rest of the week of off work to help with the viewing and funeral arrangments, but did manage to sneak away and ride some each day. I felt like it it was important for my sanity being cooped up with all my family all day. Thursday Temp and me rode 10 miles, Friday we rode 13 miles, Saturday we rode 12 miles and Sunday we rode 13 miles. After riding Temp on Sunday I took my new boy out. He is getting better and better. Although we did have a relapse on the mounting part, not as bad as it was when I first got him though. He was all excited because my cousin trailered over to ride, so he got worked up with all the commotion and a new horse being around. He did a couple of 360's, but did not bolt. And he stopped once I got through to him. Major improvement! We did a 4 mile trail ride with minimal trotting and he was way more relaxed than I thought he would be. Dismounting is still needing some work too. He jumps away from me when I get down, but no more of the reaching around and trying to bite me. All that backing up cured him of that.
PhantomHorse: So sorry about Dream's injury. Hope she heals fast!
QOS: Biscut's booboo looks like it hurt. Poor baby.
I hope you are able to get out there soon and ride!
