Finally gotten out of my slump :)

I've been in a bit if a slump lately, work my physical health and all that's been affecting my mental health.

Well I think I'm finally out of it, finally rode my horse, I mean properly rode him, not a jump on bareback and walk around then off i get, out on a bush ride for the first time in 2 months maybe, maybe longer and he was a gem

Went through water (most of the rides are under water ATM so he was a very good boy), went for a nice little trot and just had a nice time out on my horse :)

I finally feel like everything's coming together :)

I'm not going to push it anytime soon though, I've been lunging him as well, on the days when I have energy and he's walk, trotting and cantering on both sides
Which is awesome, in case you don't know, I've been having a really really hard time getting him to take that right canter consistently.

I still want to send him off to the trainer as I will be unable to ride/care for him in that time but getting kind of annoyed as she hasn't sent back anything with references, I've sent her an email I think last week now asking for her to send them but still no response... But if he doesn't end up going I think I'm just going to put him out to spell for 2-3 weeks...

But I'm not that worried, like a couple of months ago I would of been worrying but right now I'm not, it's great :) I just feel so much chilled with everything.

Haha well that's my happy rant, needed to share with someone

Not many decent trainers, most of them are a fair drive, or it's teenagers saying there all this but have no real evidence of saying what they say.

Hi Redtree,
Glad to hear things are looking up for you. Being in a slump is a pain!
With the trainer, have you thought of Tails of the Trails? I have heard good things about them. They're down south of Bunbury. Not sure where you are, or who you were looking to use, but thought I'd mention it.
