I began a blog really to reach out into the horse world and connect with other people.
I wanted to share my ideas.
I wanted to get new ideas.
I wanted to share my stories and cool things with anyone who felt like listening.
I wanted to learn how to do new things I had never even thought of trying before.
One reason I did not start a blog was to feel beat down by people that read my blog.
If you don't have anything nice to say than don't say anything at all.
Each and every one of us has blogs about our horses because we care about our horses and do what we think is best for them.
Everything I do with my Pony, I try to do for her own good.
Sometimes, it takes a matter of choosing between two less than stellar options.
Yes, Pony has been back sore. She has been having god knows what problems...but I am on my own path to finding them, and theres only so much I can do right now.
I still believe her back soreness is stemming from chiropractor issues...
However, I unfortunately made the mistake of changing two things with her, which resulted in back soreness again.
Everyone has different opinions about what is best for horses bodies.
I think that bareback riding is no worse for a horses back for short amounts of time.
Last weekend I was faced with the option of A) Unsaddle and end my ride with her being a completely spazzed and freaked out giraffe who was completely crazed or B) ride her bareback and end our ride with a calm and happy Pony. I chose option B because at the time it was what I thought was best for my horse.
If my horse cannot hold my weight bareback for ten minutes, then I think that she has some other problems going on that I need to figure out, any healthy horse can be ridden bareback for short amounts of time.
I don't blog to hear that I am doing something wrong or detrimental to my beloved horse.
Why do you blog?
