Chiropractor & Celebrity Rides

Brantley had his first chiropractor appointment this week. Bottom line is that my English saddle was the culprit in the saddle game. Quick change in a gullet and problem solved. Thank you lady who sold me a Bates with an interchangeable gullet for $600 because if I had to buy I new saddle... Ugh...

My barrel saddle? Good news... and bad news. Good news is that my saddle fits perfect! And he loves the Diamond Wool pad I use which is even better because I love it it. Bad news you may ask? My saddle fits perfect so there is no reason to go saddle shopping at Equine Affaire this year. It's still okay to look right?


Brantley was very good for his appointment. Only gave Dr. K the wide eye when he first dragged his "step stool" over. But other than that you could see him relax with every change Dr. K made. The only changes we needed to make were with my English saddle and also to discuss a change with the farrier. He is a little overdue and I felt like a bad mom but there are reasons he's overdue... 

My current farrier is unavailable but luckily the barn farrier was happy to come out and do him this week which is a definite YAY! We'll see if we can get him back on the right track to support his conformation a bit better. Recheck in 6-weeks with Dr. K!


The next day I had a nice little bareback ride... I can't believe I can say that now. Just, hop on and go. We're still only at the walk but we can do our fence work and get his body moving laterally. I have no complaints about that ride. I did some in hand lateral work getting him to circle around me and then move his shoulders out away from me. Bending and lateral movement is just what the doctor ordered.


In other news... CELEBRITY RIDES!

We had 2 Celebrity Rides this week!

The day before B's chiropractic appointment, Kate got some free time and hopped on the boy. He was a little reluctant to move forward but once they got going he seemed to move his butt a little better. Ended up having a nice little jump session. He does so well with her, makes me a happy mommy!


Celebrity Ride #2!!! A friend from the animal hospital, one of the only horse people there, other than myself, came by to finally meet Brantley. Let me tell you... He loved her. She didn't even have to go through the usual "hey, let me toss this rope around to get to know one another". We brushed him down, tacked him up, and he stood their quietly as she threw a leg over from the mounting block. He even just stood there like a champ for me to change her stirrups and tighten her girth.

They had an amazing ride together and I am so impressed with him. I did have my camera but unfortunately while uploaded videos... I deleted all of them. BUT! Here are some pictures that I will end this post with other than... Still haven't heard from Equine Affaire :(

I have heard that a lot of celebs go to see a chiropractor for the back issues they are dealing with themselves. For myself, I've had amazing luck with going to see a local chiropractor because of the major back problems I was experiencing. I still go and see the doctor from time to time to keep up with the issues.
