Almost exactly a year ago, Annie went to live with my very best friend since we were 5. When Annie left, I was sad, but I knew that I couldn’t give her the training she needed – and that I hadn’t been able to work with her like I had intended due to my hip (which was replaced shortly after Annie left).
Lots of excuses but basically, Annie needed concentrated training and I couldn’t do that for her.
I knew my friend could. And, she’s actually a way better rider than I will ever be, and they really clicked when they met. So, it seemed like the best idea for them both.
FAST FORWARD A YEAR…
It took a while for Annie to become familiar with her new digs – but once she was good to go, they hit the ground running… in this year, Annie has had her teeth/feet done regularly, had constant massages and body work, and she is trained 5 days a week.
Progressively, Annie, my friend and her trainer have worked miracles. Annie is not only under saddle, but she rode in a parade last week!
Here is a small progression of photos.
OCTOBER BUCKET FUND!! Let’s help NUNU recover! She is the horse who was ridden at a run for 7 miles on a Chicago freeway. OMG. I cannot tell you how I feel about the idiot who did this to this mare. All donations are 100% tax deductible and will go to her recovery. Yes, she is alive.
