6 month plans :)

Today has been a bit better day, my mum managed to get me a appointment with my regular doctor this morning to discuss being prescribed more morphine. After over a month of trying my GP saw me and within two minutes prescribed my regular pain relief, so now I can hopefully get my pain back to being under control which will help with the sleeping. I then came home and watched some T.V. with Jack before popping over to see my mum and get my new phone case. I then came home walked the dogs and did tea.

So I've been spending a lot of time researching what I plan to do with Magic over the next few months and I have found some videos on youtube of things that I am aiming towards doing with Magic over the next 6 months. The first thing that I would like to say is that the videos that have been posted below are not my video's just things that I have taken inspiration from and would like to try.

The first thing that I would like to try and do is lunging over poles, now for any long term followers they will know I had a very poorly horse last winter, and under vets recommendations when Magic came off box rest I actually introduced him to pole work to help with his stifles. So this below video is something that I think Magic would really benefit from.

The next thing that I think that it would be fun to do is work on some desensitisation. Magic isn't a particularly spooky horse, infact the biggest spook that I think that he has ever done consists of a side step and then carrying on with what he was doing. So while my aim with this wouldn't be to make him less spooky I think that it is important that youngsters see and are able to do different things. So this is the video that I watched about it, this was aimed at horses that tend to spook but my aim is to just introduce Magic to new things, to make him as 'bomb proof' as a horse can be.

The third thing that I plan to do is more work on loading with Magic, for those of you that read my blog a long time ago you will know that we did one session of this over the last summer (or was it the summer before) and I think that this is something that needs to be done for several reasons. A) because at some point I am going to want to travel Magic, so he will need to get used to it. B) I think that it is important that can magic can be travelled if for any reason I ever needed to move him quickly and in an emergency. C) I'd like to do some winter league dressage with Magic Eventually. Below is our first ever session of teaching magic to load.

These are the three main things that I plan to do over the next six months as they are all ground based and I think will all build up his courage. I obviously plan to continue lunging magic normally but also to continue the ground driving. I feel like Magic and I are on the same page at the moment and that we are working really well together. I love teaching him new things, and he seems to really love learning everything that he is learning at the moment.

Until Next Time
Amber, Casper, Diesel and Magic.
