I am supposed to be riding Ellie every evening to try and connect under saddle but something just doesn't feel quite right. Her crankiness is carrying beyond my rides and into training rides as well. She's totally sound and doesn't seem to have any soreness.
It must be ulcers.
But seriously- it may be ulcers so we're going to start her on some type of Gastro-guard offshoot and worst case have her scoped to see what's going on in there. My gut (haha) is telling me that we simply haven't found the right combination of mare medicine and tummy medicine. And maybe saddle fit. Sigh.
It's funny. One horse has a go button but refuses to jump anything. The other will jump the moon but doesn't want to go.
I wonder what a Wilbur- Ellie hybrid would look like? Probably a horse that won't go OR jump but would be extremely nice to look at!
