Well, having my little mare now for a little over 3 months now I can say that she is mine. All mine and I feel connected to her like she is the horse God has had in store for me. She is so precious to me! We have had a few hurdles to get over since she arrived. An injured leg and pelvis from getting hurt on the trip from TX to CA. The stress of the haul, trip to Davis, meds and bute….well, she developed a pretty good case of ulcers. She had a pretty sore neck so there’s been body work and short term stall rest. Not knowing her too well yet, I was starting to doubt my choice. She became so resistant to going forward, over reactive to my leg, and just plain fractious. No matter what I did, she just got worse during the ride. We were clearly not making any progress. Two days on the ulcer meds and I had a new horse. Literally two days! So, now I know.
Now that her tummy feels better, she is such a doll again. I look forward to our training sessions and lessons and cant wait to show Mark, my trainer our weekly progress. I am such a proud owner!!! It’s nice to have something I look forward to riding again and not stressing about injuries, sore knees and rehabbing. I just feel so blessed and lucky. It’s weird how uplifted I feel since Sugar has come into my life. I just love riding her. I love riding reiners!
Sugar has a home for life with me now. She’s my special girl and the horse I am supposed to have. Funny how God gives us the horses we are meant to have. They all have something to teach us at a particular place in our lives. Sugar has given me my horse life back and healing for my heart.
