I met Lee Ann B out at the ranch and brought up the Biscuit. He was filthy. I brushed his coat and thank goodness most of his dirt came off!!!
I tacked him up and Lee Ann was already in the arena walking Rogue around. I got Biscuit ready and went into the arena, picked up the steps and put Biscuit in the corner of the arena. I went to step on and the saddle slipped. I stopped and cinched him to 16th hole. He has dropped some weight. I went to get back on and OMG it was so hard. My legs are so weak and I pulled my self on and used even the outside rail to right myself. That was so upsetting and was in tears. I am so afraid I will get to weak to get on my horse. I can't wait til the 23rd so perhaps Dr. Murphy can tell me what is wrong with me. I am scared I will always be this way - stumbling and unbalanced and not be able to ride without someone assisting me.
I got going and went round and round the arena. Biscuit was being an angel. So different from when I got him. He was always a spastic in the arena. We worked on a little of the giving at the poll to flex his head towards me. We do that to wipe the mosquitoes from his face. We rode about 30 minutes and I dismounted. I took his tack off and Lee Ann was working with him to learn to bow. Hahahaha He did it once when I had gone into the barn to fine tape to put a carrot on a stick! Serves me right!
I did his feet after that. The backs needed nipping but I just rasped the fronts. His feet looked really good. Lee Ann and I are going to meet at the barn tomorrow and hopefully ride with Lee Ann P when she rides Legato for the first time since her accident. Hoping that goes well.
