Well my boy incurred a muscular injury in his back about a month ago and, although repaired very quickly once treated, flared up again when I bounded back into training and competing. He still managed to attain his highest mark ever at a dressage competition whilst injured though which, I think, is pretty amazing.
Retrospectively I should have taken more time returning him to work but as many of you know I’m incredibly impatient and I know deep down that he is brilliant and wanted to share that with the world. I pushed him too hard, too soon – tut tut.
I’ve learnt my lesson though, slowly and surely is the way forward.
Today he has, thankfully, be given the thumbs up physically and so, bracing myself at the same time, I am inclined to say…..
Here we go…..
