You know those little important pieces a like hip, a rib, a shoulder? Well there may be an explination as to why jumping the things was not going to happen Sunday. Stead's gots his massage/accupunture/adjustment today. First time since the gravel incident. And to be expected his left side was effed up. I didn't even have to tell her which side it was. She immediately found his left shoulder was out, his left hip was out and he had a rib that was popped up. She said lifting his front end would have been tough for him. Taking off of his left hind would have not been easy. And lifting his back where the rib was out, under the saddle, would have been very painful. Poor Dude. There were a few other various things that were adjusted. The movement in his body once she would fix something was like magic. She is by far the most effective treatment that I have seen. And Steady loves her and that's saying a lot because he doesn't love very many people.
I have a jump lesson tomorrow and I am excited to see how he feels.
