Everything ok there, Cheyennes mom?

I had a great weekend and hope that everybody here did! Saturday I traveled with my BO across the country to see a horse she is willing to trade for one of hers. The horse she is willing to trade away is a nice, sweet gelding who is working as her lesson horse, but she thinks he will be better off as someone's pet, because he isn't happy enough as a lesson hore. The horse we wen't to look at and try out was...wow, just WOW! Also a gelding, son of the best dressage horse in our country, BIG (seemed close to 17 or more HH ), affectionate, full of energy and with perfect gaits - we all fell in love with him and, if all goes well, he will come to live with us in May! I can't wait already! :)

Sunday was full of adventures. First I had a trail ride with three of my barn buddies. My mount was my friend's gelding I was asked to exercise while she's off in vacation. First everything went smooth. Then, when we started to trot, ha broke into canter, shaking his head and bucking a little, I thought it was just too much energy and got him back into trot. However, there was much cantering when not asked afterwards, and he was hard to control, so I decided that I should just walk not to upset him more. Two of my buddies decided that they need to return at the barn faster, so they went ahead and after a while, when we couldn't see them anymore, started cantering. Volf (the horse I rode) heard that, tried to trot, was stopped, and then he just exploded and went into full gallop...on a completely icy road! O_O I thought that it might as well end ugly and, when we were approaching a frozen puddle, managed to turn him into the woods, in which he went jumping over a huge pile of snow. There he continued first galloping, then cantering through trees, gradually becoming slower, because the snow was very thick, until I managed to slow him down to a stop and jump off. I lead him home bij the reins, and he still was very anxious, so, when we finally arrived, I did a little groundwork with him to help him calm down. That was HUGE, and I'm really glad I was able to sit through it all and we did it without injuries.

Later I hit the trails with my gelding and I got a major bucking session while we were cantering a cool trail with many hills and turns, because the velcros of the saddle pad had broken off and the pad had gone under the saddle. Ugh, poor boy, it must have been so uncomfortable for him. So we just walked all the way back home, I didn't want to make him sore. After unsaddling him I wanted to test my seat and jumped a 50cm obstacle with him bareback - first time jumping bareback in my life and it went smooth. :)

UPD: - woah, I sure have written a novel!

I have come a long way, to surrender my shadow to the shadow of my horse.

^^yeah, Cheyenne's okay. Apparently if we keep giving her her antibiotics and meds she'll be better in a bit more than a week. I hate not being able to do anything with her though. I'm excited because I'm allowed to lunge her tomorrow and see how she does with it. Hopefully okay because I feel like a traiter taking out Maverick all the time and not doing anything with her except brushing, patting and giving a couple treats here and there to her. Anyways that's awesome that you jumped bareback, I love doing that!!

Maybe you can try some of the parelli 7 games with Cheyenne from ground? They can be really fun even without any really physical work, also valuable and will let you spend some exercise time with her without risking her health.

Parelli is a trainer. He has a "program" called the seven games.

Yeah, they're basically groundwork exercises that in the basic levels are done to replicate the basics of horse body language and help to build trust, relationship, respect and ground manners.
