Went for a hack with Liz Huntley on Eddie, Magee on Sammy and me on Charlie. We went down to Mike’s land and rode in the grassed waterways. Charlie was quite excellent and happy to go with no tightness in his back. Lovely day!
Charlie pulled a suspensory last spring and has spent the summer recovering. He is now terrifically sound and back in work. That it is the very short synopsis of a long road. We are delighted to have him feeling better.
He is back in work and has been for several weeks. Today was transition day. We started out with walk halt transitions and moved on to trot walk trot transitions and went on to canter trot canter. He is getting more able to maintain his balance in all the transitions, which is fun for both of us. We ended up cantering through a grid of poles on the ground. fun.
