I'm really not happy with how Pammon is going, but hopefully the chiro will get here sooner than later. If not I'll get the vet out. He's just very stuck. Doesn't want to come forward, trips a lot. I'm almost thinking maybe EPM. He just feels so blah to me, and we're not getting anywhere in our under saddle work. If anything I feel like we're going backwards. But I'm sure we'll get it figured out.
You know who's really stepped up the last few days? This guy:
Despite the falling temps and the fact that we ride in the dark now during the week, he's been really good. Working better and less spooky. I had a really frustrating ride on Pammon Saturday. Not because he was being difficult really. I just was in my own head too much and feeling really anxious. There was a Nona Garson clinic happening outside. CWD had a rep there with a tent up that we could see from windows in the indoor. People coming through the indoor constantly. Very distracting. To me mostly. And I let my own spookiness ruin our ride. I get really frustrated with myself for that crap for a lot of reasons. You guys. I'm a very capable rider. I have a sticky seat. My last couple of falls have been because my horse fell down not because I was spooked or bucked off. And yet I just couldn't push Pammon forward when he wanted to be distracted. I'd let him fall behind my leg and break stride. Over and over. I felt kind of defeated. So I went home and got on Eros. Kind of prepared for a similar ride. I got lucky though and the neighbor wasn't home! We wound up having exactly the ride I needed.
|oddly enough, Eros had a moment of doing The Shiny... Maybe it was opposite week?)|
That's it from here. Did you all have a good week and weekend? How are your horses going?
