I'm Back!

Friday, 15 August 2014
Sorry guys I know it's been quite a while but to be honest I just haven't been in that much recently and then when I have been in I've been too tired to do any blogging. But I'm trying to sort out and get the blogger app working on my phone so that I can update on the move. 

Well life on the riding front is slowly moving forward, we haven't done any excessive work recently firstly because of the heat that we have had (it's just been too hot to work the horse) and when it's not been red hot we've had bad storms here! Secondly because Gats, hasn't been 100% sound. He's developed arthritis in his pastern in his front legs and the joints are fusing together in his hock on both back legs. He's also had the chiropractor out to adjust his back and he is now being rode in a dressage saddle that is being temporarily loaned to him until Jenny buys him a new one (we could be waiting a while). But he's working really well in this new saddle and this saddle helps my position loads! So that's a plus side. He's currently also having shock wave treatment every other week for 6 weeks. So hopefully thats going to do him some good :). 

Well tomorrow I should be riding Gatsby again but I might be riding Vettie as I have been riding him quite a bit recently because of the issues Gatsby has had. So I never know who I'm going to be riding until I get there. I have got some videos that I need to upload from last weeks riding lesson and also some photographs I want to share with you all from when I was at Bakewell Show. 

In other news Jacks doing okay, as expected he has his good days and his bad days but I've heard quite a bit from him this past week and it's now only 14 days until I get to see him again. So I'll have lots to share with you guys over the next few weeks. I've also got lots to tell you about what I've learnt on my BHS stage one. So stay tuned guys as there is going to be loads of updates for you to enjoy :D 

Until Next Time

  1. Welcome back! I kind of stopped blogging for a while too lol. I'm trying to get caught back up. Sorry Gatsby has been lame. I hope the new treatments get him back to normal soon. I'm glad you're having fun in the dressage saddle. They do make it so much easier to ride in the correct position!
