Ground Work

Thanks for your support, all. I'm feeling a bit better now, so here's to hoping things continue to improve.

It was an absolutely beautiful day yesterday--45f and a light breeze with full sun. I had officially decided that I wouldn't even bother putting a saddle on Izzy until she saw the chiropractor, so instead we did some ground work.

We used her leather halter with a chain to give me a little something. I rarely have to use it, but every once in a while, Ms. Mare decides she doesn't have to listen.

Anways. Just putting the chain on was enough. All of a sudden, she remembered how to walk, trot and halt on the lead line, just following my body position instead of trying to run me over. Perfect. I did lunge her in the big outdoor arena and she was actually really good. Still better left than right, but not as bad to the right as she'd been before.

All set for chiro this morning.


  1. I swear... a chain is a magic tool. It's amazing how many horses suddenly grow brains when they see one. Haha.

  2. Well done, again.

    I love my equine chiropractor. It's amazing what a good adjustment can do. Hope Izzy benefits tons from the treatment.
