Some Great News!
Dr. A took pre and post shoeing x-rays yesterday and watched her move. We had her fronts re-shod and will wait to re-do the backs at the next shoeing in 4 weeks.
I came home, printed off the entry form for Oktoberfest, and will pop it in the mail today. I am entering Riva and I in Intro Test B and Lex will ride Riva in Intro Test C.
Dr. A wants us to begin with 30-40 meter circles for the next two weeks, then we can add 20 meter circles - just not drilling her on them. She wants us to take it slow. Doc also advised not over practicing the test - as she said - Riva knows how to do 20 meter circles - she will do fine.
Excited to get her out to a show again. I competed her at Edinburgh in April and in May we took her to Come Again Farms - but she was lame and couldn't compete. Other than hauling to the vet, she hasn't been anywhere. She has been to Edinburgh several times and always seems comfortable there. We took her last October just as a companion for Hennessy. Hoping she remembers!
