Or so I thought.
Yesterday she decided that exploding at the sight of the manure guy loading up his truck was a good idea. So after I got her attention back on me we did lots of trotting figure 8s. So I will have to see how sore or lame she is today and play it by ear. The good thing is that I felt absolutely no difference in her in the changes of direction and she was moving well.
I really want to start doing some trot sets with her and get her (and me) back in some sort of shape, but I will give this hit and miss a few more days and see if she gets more comfortable. The tough thing with this mare is that I can't tell when she is fussy if it is because she is pissed because she gave in and let me get on her, or if she is sore somewhere.
I keep telling myself that this is pretty normal for a horse that has been out of work for months and there is not really much sign of her obstinate side.
