Little Update

Not too much has been happening recently. Sora is doing so much better! She is trotting really nicely and even tried some canter the other day :D Ellie, my neighbor who boards Sora just introduced another horse that she is temporarily boarding and I was quite worried about how Sora would take it especially since there is some ice still in their pen from all of the thawing and freezing. Ultimately it went really well and the horses are getting along really well.

I've been meaning to get some video of us training now that I have a video camera but every day I'm out there something different is happening such as with the new horse so it just hasn't happened.

I did have a really nice time with Sora yesterday though! She was extremely motivated so we did all kinds of things such as shoulder in, different types of yields, targeting, trot-walk transitions (which we kept to a minimum with her leg), backing and I worked a lot on her feet since she was willing to pick up her right hind leg for the first time since she was injured.

Now, unfortunately, we had a huge drop in temperature which makes working with the horses extremely difficult so I drove to my parents house for the weekend for a short break. The weather is supposedly going to be better later this week already so hopefully we'll be able to continue soon!

Slight Break

I had all kinds of fun things to post today, that was until my silly, bratty dog decided to run away for over 6 hours today.

Because of that my time this morning was spent looking for her and stressing. Luckily Lisa just called me to let me know that she is at home so tomorrow we can continue with our regularly scheduled program :)
