Did it work a miracle and turn Cisco into a majikal fancy prancing horse?
Not so much.
Do I think it made a bit of a difference and he was more comfortable?
|I'll be sad when the blue oxidizes and changes colour.|
When we initially picked up the trot I liked the feeling I had in my hand. He felt a bit softer through his body.
And then I had to kick him forward because he was gawking at the other horse in the arena. Which became the theme through most of the ride.
|We had moments like this.|
There were a couple of fleeting moments during the ride when he did reach forward and down for a couple of strides. I got all excited inside and the angels started singing and I started planning our dressage show schedule for next year. And then he turned into a giraffe again. Was he reaching for the contact? Or was he just sticking his head down? No idea.
|But still mostly like this.|
