So. Tried to ride the mare Sunday. She's off in her right front, still. Oh, and it's getting worse. I'll spare you the long rant on how frustrated I am with a lot of things right now and jump to the part where I have a plan.
The plan is as follows: I have a friend with a couple of horses, some green pastures, and a small arena. My friend offered a couple months ago to let Izzy come hang out for a while. I deferred before because we were going to, you know, take lessons and show. Well, my lessons keep getting canceled either because my instructor's busy or because my horse is lame and I really haven't been able to afford to show all summer anyways.
I was hoping to do a show at the end of the month, but again, Izzy's off. I can take a different horse (and I guess I will, if I enter and she isn't better), but I really want to be investing in MY horse, not someone else's. As such, I'm taking Izzy to my friend's house tomorrow. I'm hoping that the much softer footing coupled with turnout will be a big stride in the right direction as far as soundness goes. I've also got Izzy scheduled to see a chiropractor about a week before the show.
Wish us luck.
