Gosh! Last posting Dec 15th! And it was from me! What's everyone doing? Hibernating? It's summer down under and I need advice on getting med paces out of my 6 yr old. She's not consistently giving and one dressage judge marks us so so harshly!
that would bug me too sherry! i think you need to say something to your instructor. i mean you're getting good value if you spend your time -even some of it, calming down the young horse. i mean i know it is good for them to get used to many different situations, but one hopes that during a lesson you can concentrate on learning and the feel you are looking for, eh.
ok maybe I am getting old but this bugs me . When I take a lesson there is a very young girl that brings her whole family that is not the problem the younger sibling just runs all over the place and the parents say nothing, I have a young horse and very big, when it starts to get dark and he sees things move outside the indoor arena he spooks well for the last month he has been doing fine, but last night the little girl was running all over the place and really spooked my horse, I wish people would understand horses are prey animals, what we see they see differently, (a moving person could be a cougar to them) What happened last night could have been avoided if parents would watch their children. (My instructor had to tell them about it for the 20th time)
on a good note I just did my first no stirrups jump last night . I am so proud of myself. Love doing new things
So sorry to hear about your toe and you TIA. Life can be really challenging at times, can't it.
I hope you get back to riding.
hi! haven't signed in in ages. What's been happening? I got my toe broke by comet. He started when i was changing his cover, and his hoof hit the end of my big toe, the end bone split vertically in 3. That was a drama. Then Nov 22 at work I had a TIA and ended up in hospital. That was more drama. I've had to scratch from shows, and couldn't ride, as my blood pressure was crazy after the TIA. They say my lifestyle is 'perfect', but my genetics are what is bad.
I was diagnosed with MM in 2005 and was so very ill that they really didn.t feel that I would survive for many months. This year I have come through a year of chemo leading up to my stem cell transplant in February of this year. I had three months to recueperate then back into chemo. The good news is that I have just been told that I am officially in remission.
I am still quite weak and the maintenance chemo does take it,s toll but for the main I am pretty good. There are new drugs on the scene every few months now and pretty soon MM will be a chronic illness which can be managed instead of the incurable cancer at present. As part of my chemo I took part in the Myeloma 11 trial using the drug Revlimid but others I know have had good results from Velcade too. Sorry to twitter on - you probably know all this already but I do worry when I hear that people are given such a dismal prognosis when I know that things are improving for us all the time. Good luck with your journey and your riding.
