New Endevors

The horses are finally all moved into their new barn. It's been nice having them on full care and being able to devote time to actually riding and training and not just doing barn work, having said that thought, it's been a really difficult transition for me. I've only had a horse on full care twice in my life, for one month for rehab after Emmy hurt her suspensory and then again for two months years later after a colic so bad that I almost lost her. Other than that, I've always taken care of my horses myself...and the majority of the time I like it better that way.

Anyway, the horses seem to have settled in well. We moved on November 1st and they have definitely been adjusting since then. Emmy got her shoe put back on and I started her back under saddle. She is sound (YAY!) and seems to be really happy to be ridden again. I'm super happy to be riding her too! Cool has been pretty good also, he's settled down quite a bit and is now SUPER lazy under saddle. I've been working him mainly western but also english a little too. BF has been riding him a lot which is really good!

I also (drum roll...) FINALLY bought a horse trailer!!! YAY!! It's so exciting to be able to take my horses wherever I want, whenever I want. I love it!

I'm in the process of really buckling down and making a good weekly training schedule for my horses. I'm a little all over the place with when I ride them and how consistent I have been with working them. The majority of Cool's rides have been mainly walking with a little trot since BF has been riding him. I'm working on figuring it all More updates to come!
