Happy new year!

It's been a little while again but very little has changed. It's a long and frustrating process, bringing a horse back into work! Echo has been amazing on box rest- really calm and happy in her stable. We did try turning her out in a small pen but after a couple of days she broke out and galloped around the yard like an idiot so I'm waiting until I can get some sedaline before trying again!
I have been riding her a little, which has been great, but I have a feeling she's uncomfortable with the saddle again, as she doesn't seem happy in her back still- she was great at first but then something spooked her and she nearly bucked me off! Echo is not a bucker so she is definitely telling me something!
She's having physio tomorrow and the vet is coming on Thursday to vaccinate her, but I will hopefully get him to have a look at her back again as well. Then hopefully the saddler will look at her saddle asap- then maybe we can start making slightly more progress!
But for today, we had a little ride in the sunshine, so hopefully we have started the new year a we mean to go on- and, hopefully, 2013 will bring us a little more luck.
Wishing you all a very happy new year!

Echo is so beautiful and sweet. I'm sure you'll get it all sorted out and she'll be comfortable again.

Have a wonderful year and many good rides with Echo. Happy New Year.

I've just subscribed to your blog after reading it from the very beginning over the last few weeks.

Best of luck for 2013 - the rehabilitation schooling sounds like an excellent idea to me - particularly if you can see the gorgeous Echo each weekend and keep in touch with progress.

Ahh thank you - I can't imagine what it's like to read it from the beginning - quite frustrating I imagine, with all my to-ing and fro-ing! But with any luck we should get back on track soon.
