    Hehehe, well, not quite an Olympic rider.....but I really feel like I'm getting somewhere. Pointless thread, but had to share! Finally pleased to report that Storm and I (after weeks of building up because of her hock problems) had our first fantastic "proper" canter on Saturday night!!!!!!!!!! WAsn't going to - it just sort of happened and do you know, what a star she was. Came right back to trot and walk with the slightest of touches. She is really listening atm, I feel on top of the world with her again. Rode this morning before work - and felt like we could have gone on forever (only had a half hour) just didn't want to get off!!!!! Her "lightness" is returning and even after just a 15 minute warm-up in walk she is much better. Now what I need is for her to remember my "silent" cues for canter - she used to respond to them just with me thinking - anyway, all more stuff to work on!! Just wanted to share - and for anybody thinking of the Cartrophen injections for their horse, I really would recommend as I think this time they've done the trick!

I think this computer of mine is coming to the end of its days (I can't evenuse the quick reply facility or icons anymore!) so will have to switch to OH's computer and then of course I can bore you all with pics....hehehehehehehe. (Only I really want to get Storm looking trimmer - I fear you would all swoon with her balloon shape atm!!!lol)
