I got to get out for a ride on Georgie. It was magical.
It’s been about 6 months since I’ve ridden her. She got out this past month with her owner who was here in July, after getting the go ahead to get ridden from our vet. And, now that her owner is gone, the riding falls to me.
But it’s not that simple.
She still has a tear in her suspensory ligament. The ultrasound showed that the tear is smaller, but it’s still there. And she looks better on a small circle, but she still isn’t sound.
So, it may be that Georgie is never completely sound. Which means she probably won’t jump again. Which sucks.
I was really hoping that by this point she’d be sound and ready to get back to real work. But on the other hand, I feel like sometimes these injuries take up to a year to heal.
So, more waiting. But because she is physically healing, our vet felt we had to keep her mentally stable as well. So, she said she can get out 2-4 times a week. Just trail ride, walk with some trot.
So, that’s where we are at.
So I get to ride Georgie. Which is awesome. But it’s also hard to forget what used to be.
