Guest Writer Liz Huntley on Elliot

Today Camie on Jones and me on Elliot went for a therapeutic ride on the road and through the fields since Elliot is recovering from a stifle injury. I worked on getting Elliot to move forward and come over his top-line, so that he can start to build up the correct muscling. It took a little while but with Camie’s great instruction and a patient, willing, Elliot I got the hang of it by the end. We also took a lovely trot through the fields and up and down the hills, and picked a few mulberries along the way. Unfortunately Jones threw a shoe somewhere in the field, so Elliot and I finished up the trot work by ourselves and then accompanied Jones back to the barn. Overall a good ride and a great experience on a different horse.
