12 Months

This is to say that 12 months ago yesterday, I pulled Tristan up in his lesson because he wasn't feeling quite right. The next day, he was quite unsound on the RF. The day after that, he blew out his abscess, one year ago tomorrow.

Hell of a year.

Tonight we had what might be called our first really solid schooling session since that day. We warmed up, we worked on lesson homework, we worked through rough spots, we improved from start to finish, we took a break, and we picked the work back up and cemented it. He felt fit throughout and tired in a muscle building way at the end - it was the most time he had spent bending and forward and stepping under since last year. SO glad we are on the path forward!


  1. Just started following your blog, I look forward to you and your horses path forward.

    1. Thank you! It's been a very long year, and I'm glad we're working forward again.
