For those of you who may not remember my werehorse incident I will give a short explanation. The first time the DOR loped me I sent her to the moon and she fractured her pelvis...I felt really sorry. It took her almost a year before she loped me again and that was for only 1/2 the length of the arena. It left her shaking and crying, but she did it.
Sir Royal Pain has reminded her how much fun loping is. She giggles and smiles, she feels like she is flying. Here she is at the clinic loping for the first time in an English saddle. It is also the longest she has loped since she started riding again. They had done a big clover leaf pattern and this is the very end of it.
Nice that SRP is getting her ready for when she rides me again. I plan on taking her for a nice lope around the arena to celebrate. I won't need a massage, relese on my legs, or bute when I am done because I am a young guy. Although I may act like I am sore to get a massage.
Enjoy your day and don't forget to hug your DOR!
