There’s nothing much going on here. I rode Dusty last Friday for a few minutes. Unfortunately, she was head-bobbing lame so I got off quickly. The thing that boggles my mind was that she stood like a statue at the mounting block, I got on and she didn’t move until I asked her to go. Now, in my book, if I was hurting--and she definitely was--I certainly would have put up some sort of commotion to keep someone from getting on my back. This is just one of the reasons she always has me baffled. I asked her for a trot and she would have kept going if I wanted her to. But once I saw how off she was we ended and I dismounted.
The soreness seemed to be higher up in her stifle maybe, so she had the week off. Which was just as well because I picked up a wicked cold somewhere and was down for the count, too. Dusty doesn’t seem to be lame anymore which I’m happy about. I’m starting to feel better but don’t think I’ll be riding this weekend until my chest clears up. The thing that annoys me the most is being sick when the weather was so beautiful last week. But then, it’s only a week and there will be more time to ride soon enough!
Hope you all had a good week and got in lots of riding or time working with your horses.
Until next time
