After Jacque left I saddled Biscuit after grooming him. We rode in the arena for 30 minutes. He was not wanting to trot and after kicking and kicking and popping with a crop he finally started a little trotting. OMG he needs to be ridden more. When I got off my legs were like spaghetti from kicking him.
Lee Ann suggested using the snaffle - he is getting missed signals she said. I am going to use his Allegany bridle with the snaffle and ride in the arena more. I am going to put my spurs on too. I can't kick sideways with any strength and it really wears my legs out. I talked to my physical therapist about it but it is just going to take a long time for my nerves to heal. Ugh. So wish they would heal and I could walk straight again. I will just have to barely touch him with spurs but I do believe he will get the message!
