Week 2

Today we had our Christmas party at DD Mustangs with Pacific Wild horse Club members. A few of us brought our EMM horses and others brought their horses to play with. Lisa rode Santana with me leading her and I rode him with Lisa leading me. It was a great day!

Santana is telling Kevin a secret!

He is having some problems with bending and is stiff in a lot of areas so he got a visit from a horse physical therapist named Julia. He really enjoyed the stretching and it made him feel better. She said he had a shoulder injury at one time and this may be the cause of his discomfort. She said he needs to be adjusted by a chiropractor so we will be making him an appointment for that. He was such a good boy for her. He stood completely still for her except when it hurt.

Our friend who is also in the EMM, Dawn Martin, worked with Santana and Kevin worked with her horse Doug.

He's such a lovely boy! I'm very impressed with the quality of horses this year.

Santana is built so well, what a beauty! Glad to see he was able to get some help from a therapist. My horse probably needs it too, wish I could afford it!
