Riding Princess and Scrapbooking

On Friday I got to ride Princess again. Its so nice when a horse finally gets better and can be ridden again. It was only three weeks and it seems like forever. She was really good. I only rode about 25 minutes, little bit walk and trot each way and we were done. She was really good.

I tried Bailey as well, and she is still gimpy. She doesn't seem sore and seems to want to be ridden, but she has like a lack of control over her hind end. I turned her sharp to the right and she just about fell over, couldn't get the back end moved quick enough, so I wondered if my saddle was bothering her and I took it off and got on bareback (witch I have never done on her before) and something is weird in her back, the muscles seem to move in balls, not long like they should. I am gonna get a someone else to look at her and see what can be done, cause its just not quite right. She walks like shes drunk in the back.

That night, I went to my moms and we scrap booked till midnight. I actually got a lot done. I never imagined I would cause I was exhausted.

On my way home, I stopped by the barn again and just brushed and fed them and visited with everyone who was there. I mentioned to Charlene I would take lessons with her whenever she has time.

Today we went down to Brooks to celebrate Neils dads birthday. We had a turkey dinner and just visited and watched curling of course. It was kinda nice to just relax cause there was nothing we should been doing, because we weren't home.

How cool that you scrapbook. I've not picked up my supplies in severl years now. I've got an entire cabinet, plastic drawers and several scrapbook bags full of papers and goodies. I was starting to get bad and not wanting to bother looking in my stuff for supplies and just going shopping for new stuff all the time...until I finally got tough on myself...and said "Enough! Use what ya got!" lol!

My problem now is that I just don't print my photos. I really need to soon as I just keep adding more and more to my poor computer. gah!

Well, I hope you can get to the bottom of why Princess seems so 'knotty' in her back. I hope she can feel more supple and comfortable soon.
