...on the flat.
He's turned into a monster over fences.
Yankee...such asshole. WHAT HAPPENING.
He's starting to buck when I ask for the canter, chips at every fence, stops, or bunny hops. EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. Its like he is doing it on purpose and its INFURIATING. He refuses to even jump 2'6 oxers and I'm like
The last time we jumped I was so annoyed I threw my hands up in frustration and just let him walk for 10 minutes so I could cool off and then flatted him. Whats worse is every time I jump it seems like there are a hundred people watching and I'm always embarrassed my dumb horse won't even jump two feet.
|The only moderately decent jump/picture all day.|
Then I remembered its been almost a year since he got his hocks done.
So there's that.
But it doesn't make sense to me. The vet thinks he should be good for three years. Definitely more than one. AND he's fab on the flat. Like, amazing.
|DAT TROT DOH|
And thats in a hackamore! He's engaged, through, and forward. His flying changes are getting better too. And that requires a lot of hock action.
For now, since I can't afford to guess and get a vet out to test his hocks again when he is NOT showing lameness like last time, I will use the half pad again with my saddle and see if that fixes things.
