This is a blog of my two draft crosses, Kal and Kinsley, and our adventures together. This blog contains bitless riding, barefoot trimming, horse training, and equine fitness & health. This blog does not contain anything to do with: bits, horse shoes, or abusive riding/training.

Kin has been her usual superstar self. We haven’t done much new; just reinforcing what she already knows. She’s also starting to grow again, and is currently between 14.1 and 14.2 at the withers. Kal was 15.2 at her age, but Kin also has clydesdale in her, and that is by far one of the slowest growing breeds (height-wise). Most clyde crosses I’ve known don’t really start growing until they’re 2+.

Still here. Just had all my exam results come in June, and then had to go about becoming an adult and starting my career. I’ve seen the beasts as frequently as possible; just not enough time to post about them.
Kal is sound at the walk. Still slightly off at the trot in the round pen (fairly sound in a straight line). I’ve been working on her shoulder myself, and we’ve been doing short lunge sessions and bareback rides at the walk.
Kal has been enjoying the vacation, and getting fat.

Life is hard with so many massages and adjustments.

Two days, and a few big bills later, Kal has been seen by a massage therapist and a chiropractor. The triceps wasn’t the issue this time. Her supraspinatus muscle is basically a mess, and her shoulder was extremely elevated. The chiropractor put it back in place, and then Kal got some lovely Kineso-tape to hold everything in place. Hopefully, this solves the issue for us.
