@Celeste : I am so sorry to hear your bruises are interfering with riding! Hopefully things heal up soon so you don't miss too much good weather.


I got some saddle time last week. The whole story is in my journal.

Tuesday, I started with Iggy:





Next up was George:





Wednesday, I started with Phin:







Next I worked with Link:



Then, I hopped on Iggy just to take Kestrel for a walk:



Just after we finished dinner, Ed arrived with the nephews to visit the horses. Link is their favorite!




There is no joy equal to that found on the back of a horse.

I went on a nice ride Monday. I was fine during the ride, but something is causing severe pain after I ride. I guess it was that sailing over Dillon's head and landing on my butt when he went from a gallop to a sudden stop a week ago.

@Celeste I hope that pain goes away. Maybe you bruised your tail bone?

I think that I bruised my tailbone, sacrum, and everything else in that area. I felt great when I first got up this morning. Now it is hurting again.

@Celeste A nice long hot shower and/or heat pad might help. Hope the hurting goes away soon.

@Celeste : sorry to hear you are having issues after your fall. bruising your tailbone is super painful.


I have gotten more saddle time this week. The whole story is in my journal.


Monday, I hopped on George bareback to mosey around with Kestrel:





Tuesday, I got George out for a real ride.




After discussing his status with DH, we decided it was time for some additional testing - this time for PPID and EPM. I contacted the vet and she stopped to draw blood on her way home.


I have also been doing a lot of ground driving with Link to try to find a bit he likes.


Its not going well..


Wednesday, I went over to ride with Nicole. I rode Polo.

@phantomhorse13 Do you think a bit less bridle would work with Link? Does he still have his wolf teeth? Could be the bits are hitting the teeth. I was told long ago that feels like a person chewing on aluminum foil.

@RegalCharm : Link does not have wolf teeth and I am regularly poking my fingers in there to make sure they haven't erupted since the last dental he had (last fall). I do actually want to have him bitless when all is said and done, but feel learning to deal with a bit is an important part of a young horse's education, as you never know what may happen in the future (though of course I don't ever plan to sell him).


I got a bit more saddle time at the end of the week. The whole story is in my journal.

Thursday, I started with Iggy:





Then, I rode Amish with Gina and Nik:





Friday, I got Phin out before the rain:

Looking for prayers, positive energy, or whatever it is you do. My son Nico has been worse in recent days, and right now he is in the ER with DH. High BP, orange and purple feet and spasms.

I am sitting outside in the car.
