Still alive

After two months of worrying, stressing and panicking we're starting to get there with this shoulder mystery. Numerous physio sessions have resulted in Vallu getting 95% better, but still being short in front in walk. According to my vet, this is quite rare to have a horse that is sound and moving fine in trot and canter but taking a noticeable shorter step with a front leg in walk. But it was fantastic  to have confirmation that Vallu is not in any pain and that what we have done so far is correct and we are on the right track to have the horse back in proper work soon.  He'd just unfortunately damaged a part of his body that is a massive muscle that will take a very long time to fully recover. Although I would have loved a summer of competing and training, the most important thing is that Vallu isn't in any pain whatsoever and that he is happy ♥︎

There's no place like home

There is nothing as nice as being able to go home to see everyone ♥︎ With the end of my summer holiday quickly approaching and the start of final year at university edging closer and closer, I'm trying to spend as much time as possible at home before settling down for the next three months of hard work. Vallu has been having a little holiday too before we start properly increasing the amount of work he is doing so we can see how his shoulder has healed!
