When she came out, she asked what specifically I'd been dealing with.
"He's funky about his right side," I said.
|Funny shot, but I liked it|
And then six inches farther back "and that".
Another six inches "and that".
And so on pretty much all the way down to his sacroiliac area, which was fine. Yay for good hips, I guess.
|It did seem to help.|
After all the work she did, she wanted the little man to have a solid 48 hours of rest. Wednesday was his first day back. I took him for a hack in the field in his jump tack, figuring we'd just do some long and low at all three gaits.
|Look at us not falling towards the arena fence.|
After a good long walk, I picked up the reins and Courage tried to stick his head up. I put my leg on, he went on the bit, and the rest of our ride was pretty much magical.
He really stepped things up to a whole new level. I haven't been able to get this kind of connection in his rubber mullen before. As long as I kept him forward, Courage was stepping up from behind and going into the contact like a pro. He moved off both legs and was incredibly pleasant.
|I'd say he's pretty fancy|
Yay for flat work and body work!
