Feeling Better

Oh So’s been feeling better the past two weeks since he banged his stifles at Morven. He still has the scars, but he’s sound and happy to be back to work. We had a great jump lesson last weekend, just popping over training height fences. He cantered around very easily and it was a good first school back after his lameness.

I took him to Morningside the next day for a canter on the track and some hill work. He actually seemed a bit tired, but I think the hills did his hind end some good. It’s important that I strengthen his hind end so he’s physically fit enough to do combination after combination at the prelim level. He can gallop and jump all day long, but I want to make sure we have all of our bases covered, especially now that it’s going to start getting hot.

I’m settling in to my new job at COTH well and it looks like I’ll be doing a bit of traveling this summer, starting with the U.S. Dressage Team Selection Trials in Gladstone, N.J. in June.

Rolex is next week and I’m finally getting excited about it! I have my shopping list, I’m saving my money and it should be a lot of fun.
