I rode my favorite horse, Beau, on Thursday for the first time in over six months. I love him to death and it was like we never parted, it was a wonderful ride!
Unfortunately, during my absence from the stables, one of Beau’s hips has become a little weak and he can’t canter off the right lead anymore which means that he won’t start a canter off his right foreleg. As such, it is not safe for him or the rider to turn in a clockwise direction while he is cantering as his balance will be off, he can only canter straight or turn counter clockwise.
No one knows for sure what happened to him. He is probably just getting old, poor guy. He’s my War Horse!
