I don’t remember what happened exactly. We were canter down the long side at the end of the lesson and she felt magnificent: strong impulsion, light in my hands, and then something. The world spun and I …

Doing the rehab itself wasn’t hard. It just took dedicated time every week. No excuses (well, except for weather — can’t do much walking or riding in the rain without a covered arena). The hardest part was …

Kasane’s rehab took the majority of my energy last year. On top of that, things at my old position became…less than optimal. While I enjoyed everyone I worked with, the last reorganization ended up in my position changing from …

For the past few weeks, I’ve felt like I was holding my breath waiting for Kasane to reinjure herself. She hasn’t. But she might try, like the times she put her back feet through the stall wall and almost needed stitches. (She demolished that wall when she rolled in …

Her injury on her front right leg is serious and more complicated than we originally thought.

She kicked out with her back …
