I have much to write, but I've been really busy. Work kept me from being able to ride my horse for an entire week, and then the one day I was able to ride I found Kaswyn had pulled off one of his front shoes. I was already pretty frustrated that I hadn't been able to ride because of work, but then to finally get out there and only be able to groom my horse really made me want to bang my head against the wall. However, I saw something in his stall that day that made me pretty happy.
Looks like Kaswyn has resumed the Dip and Sip. Just in time for the horse dentist to come out tomorrow. Figures! I'm keeping the appointment, since I want him to check out that questionable tooth, and fix the developing wave mouth that Kaswyn is getting.
Since he's seeing the dentist I rode Kaswyn today instead of tomorrow. Fortunately a week off doesn't seem to have affected him and we had a great ride. I'm thinking that sometime in the middle of next month that I'll call my trainer for a lesson. I'm excited at the thought of a lesson, even if it will be in a small arena!
