I rode Mabou on Friday and Saturday, nothing crazy just our normal WTC (and it felt SOOO good to be back on my horse after a 3 week hiatus)…… apparently I shouldn’t have done that because the mystery puffiness (about the length of my thumb, maybe smaller) was back in his left front again.
Trainer said maybe although the ultrasound of the leg was clean, there was a slight injury that was too mild to show up, such as a sprain or micro tears in the soft tissue. So, unfortunately, I am going to give him a few more weeks off, as I want to make sure he is fully healed. He has been wearing the Back on Track quick wraps most nights, hopefully it is helping.
I had planned a trail ride this Sunday with my sister, who hasn’t ridden in at least 6-7 years, maybe even more, so I asked my friend if I could take her pony since Mabou was out of commission for a little longer. She said yes, so I had a new mount for the day, a cute little hairy devious pony.
We had a great ride, and stayed out for about an hour and a half. Pony was so forward, sister’s horse was cantering behind him as he trotted!
It was the perfect day for a trail ride, the temperature hit 50 today and the sun was shining. A much needed break from the frigid temps we have had lately!
I jumped a few logs with pony, and my sister took video and I took a still from the video.
Lastly, check out these new socks! Love them!
