I am so grateful to be working with people who keep me in the loop with my horses when I'm absent. S is completely proactive and sends a quick update of each ride (or lazy day off) complete with a picture of a cute muzzle now and again. I know everyone has been away from their furry children, and it's just so reassuring to hear that they are warm and dry and being fed treats... (or working on flying changes, or some such thing).
I'm also grateful that my vet and Cowboy Man keep me pretty informed with Miss P when my schedule keeps me from visiting. Usually it's just an email here or there, but last week I got a series of videos showing my cute red mare bouncing through a (small) grid.
My vet is really liking how it's making her use her body and it seems to be accelerating the loosening of her shoulder, which is the last body issue still standing. They haven't been jumping her much, but P seems to enjoy it and loads herself right in the line.
This first video is the first time through and P is just trying to figure it out. She adds a stride and throws herself over her shoulder which is a move I distinctly remember from the few times I played with her over cavaletti. The second clip was her fourth time through on the first day and she's using herself a bit more.
I'm a hop, skip and a jump away from having two jumpers! Which is weird, since I'm pretty sure I bought two Dressage prospects.... :)
