After my fall Tuesday I took Wednesday off. I’m pretty sure it was because I had a work engagement but I was so body sore I probably would have used any excuse to take the day off.
My ride Thursday started off great. She was relaxed and so was I. We worked in the indoor on getting deep and being forward.
And then a bird flew up out of the corner and she freaked out. And nearly dumped me. Again.
I was so pissed I kept her nose to her chest for the rest of our tense ride.
The following day I let her gallop around prior to riding. She was cuckoo and literally ran into/tried to jump the outdoor arena fence.
Our ride was ok. Tense. Lots of snorting.
She had cut her leg but felt physically fine. I questioned whether I wanted to ride this mare anymore.
And then I remembered that we had taken her off of her injectable Regu Mate. We had thought it wasn’t doing anything and that the Quiessence was the miracle drug. Apparently it’s the two drugs together that help this mare’s brain.
So, she got that injection. And yesterday we had a lovely hack around the property.
I’m off to speak at a conference in Florida this week (yay! Florida in May! Why couldn’t this have happened in January?) and hopefully when I return Macy and I can resume with our more enjoyable drug induced rides.
