I never normally post in forums but I have been having some struggles with my riding which, in the absence of any horse-minded friends, I wanted to get some advice about! I really hope someone here can help me; searched for Horse Forums and was quite surprised to see that you have a sub-forum dedicated to this very topic of confidence, so I surely can't be alone
I came back to riding about 6 months ago after a real break of quite a few years. I absolutely love it; I can't describe the feeling when I am in the stables around the horses.
My experiences since getting back into riding have been up and down. When I first started, I had a handful of private lessons so the instructor could assess which group to place me in. She was really vocal in her praise and saying I should definitely join the Advanced group. I was quite surprised, but of course really happy that she seemed to think I was capable. Whilst I definitely love it, I have since had quite a few group...
My horse is in the best condition he has ever been. His weight is good and his fitness is much improved on previous years. He is fully clipped and this year for the first time ever in winter, he has come out covered in dapples. He sometimes gets them in his summer coat, but he has never looked like this in winter before. I have googled it and there is some suggestion that this is a sign of good health. Does anyone know for sure? @chev - can you help?
So is it true that you can get Lyme disease from being around horses? Do you know anyone who has?
It's probably a really strange question but I was googling Bella Hadid for something and came across this article
This line specifically: It is thought they were all infected years earlier through contact with horses.
So I was just wondering and thought you lot are probably the best people to ask. Just curious that's all
Acceptable level for November is 29 and Jack is down to 31 so now very close to being in the normal range. Five and a half weeks ago, untreated, his level should have been under 47 and it was 84. Vet is very happy with how he has responded in the time frame, considering he's a big horse for such a little pill, so doesn't need to re-test until March now.
Yikes! I'd better dust off his saddle!!!
Good boy, Jack
