My love 😍😍 had the day off today so snuck in a quick ride in the new bit. He was absolutely amazing, I couldn't believe it. Actually couldn't fault him. He was soft and worked on a loose rein basically the whole time without speeding up or ploughing through. He was so relaxed and happy. It was so nice to have a ride at home for the first time in a month without any stress and without fighting each other. He didn't resist the bit for a second so hopefully this is a step in the right direction ☺

Just ordered the last four tubes of omoguard for the baby. Two down four to go! And my new bit should arrive today or tomorrow for us to try on the weekend! Hopefully he will be back to himself soon! .

Pony club today! Wren was definitely better than he has been the last two weekends so I think the omoguard is definitely helping and he is starting to feel better (only on day 7 of treatment). He was, however, not at all happy in his mouth so definitely time for a bit change. He was incredibly strong for most of our flat lesson and just pulling like a steam train. But on xc he was lovely again! A few sneaky stops toward the end after he bumped one of his legs on a log but we conquered some mountains! He went over his very first ditch ever (I lead him over on the ground first), jumped a super scary bright yellow fence, went into the water like he was a fish and we even finally conquered the dreaded blue pipe that he had a meltdown over a few months back so that was a great accomplishment ☺ and to top it off he basically walked straight on the float to come home (going to pony club was a different story but let's not go there). Now time for a well earned few weeks off from travelling anywhere while he finishes the omoguard treatment and some much needed ground work at home ☺

Mid-bath photo, someone was not impressed πŸ˜‚ got off my ass and got him all washed and plaited and rugged, ready for tomorrow. I will actually cry if it rains and tomorrow is cancelled now πŸ™„

Three days to go until Wren's first ridden show, he is hairy, scruffy and hasn't been ridden for a week, and I have a never ending headache, not feeling motivated at all! 😭

Didn't get any photos but Wren was a total gem today! So soft and cal and not pulling into my hands, even in canter! Super happy with him after 5 days off to come back that calm. Pony club tomorrow! Expecting him to be a fruit loop πŸ˜‚πŸ™„

Throwback to about 5-6 years ago and fire and is first ever ode. We rode for a different club back then and I remember being sooo nervous, neither of us had ever done one before but she did her usual amazing thing and brought us home with a second for our first ever go ☺πŸ’ͺ

Some float practice after our little 'accident' last weekend πŸ™„ to be honest I thought it would be a big enough scare for him to make he completely go back to square one with floating but he wasn't as bad as I expected. It was only about 20 mins to have him going on and off comfortably like this. Started some practice of stopping halfway out and coming back in. His issue is that when he decides he's going out nothing is going to stop him, so he needs to learn to stop backing when I ask him to. So hard having a horse that was ruined with his barrier training and blindfolded as a racehorse to get in the barriers. He just ha no trust and when he thinks something is going to happen that's it, he just 'runs blind' and does what he can to remove himself from the situation. But that will all change with time and patience! ☺. I don't normally walk on in front of him, I usually send him on from the outside but it was much easier to practice the backing and stopping from this angle. .
