If your question doesn’t get answered right away it’s because I’m going to research it when I get home tonight!
bayrab sent: My horse and I will be getting back into riding after 6+ weeks off due to rider injury. How do I go about getting us both back into the swing of things while preventing tendon or muscle injury?

If he hasn’t done anything at all in the time you’ve been off I would go very slowly almost as if you’re rehabbing him. Do a lot of work in the walk your first few rides back and get him back flexing and listening to your aids. Then start adding in trotting for 5-10 mins, nothing super strenuous.

You can build up trotting time and then difficulty of exercises as you both gain strength. Don’t do any super small circles, leg yields, etc for a bit and build your way up to the canter after you’ve been trotting for 25-30 mins straight. Just listen to yourself and your horse. If he’s still feeling weak and you’ve been at 15min for a week give him some more time and just do more exercises in the 15 min! That being said 6 weeks isn’t super long and you can probably be back in decent work in about a month since he wasn’t injured! Just play around with him Enjoy getting back into work can’t imagine being off that long!!

So yeah he’s not fully submissive and there’s not a lot of reach in his step in this pic, but I can see he’s starting to carry himself and he’s not pulling down at all in this pic which is huge for Finn!!

He is perfect I could not have a more gorgeous horse.

if anyone has a taggcode bracelet in green (the band one not the stringy one) do you have a pic? i wanna see what it looks like in real life b.c. the pix on the site are really misleading as far as color and if the green is nice i might do that instead of black down the line

stop it, i need special stirrups for my knee

idk if these are good for that like the first ones i posted but these look like they’d feel amazing to ride in. sometimes with the thicker stirrups like the first pair i feel like it’s harder to get my heel down. but i think these looks really elegant in silver ughh

I just want to have a bunch of stirrups so I can like..change them out for how i’m feeling for the day ya feel me. like…these are my sassy saturday stirrups

I lost it at ‘Sassy Saturday Stirrups’. Please make this a thing.

i’m going to make a gofundme so i can raise money to experience these stirrups like really
