The time has come to face reality and admit a defeat of sorts. I have been referred to Camp Pendleton for my prior back injury and must stop riding until a more permanent fix has been found. I will sneak in a trail ride here and there but no competitions or serious training can be seen in the near future for me. I am of course devastated but am looking towards the future! I will ride again!!!!
My plans are to keep working the boys on the ground and do a lot of desensitization (Clinton Anderson method) By the time I can get back into training and showing both boys should be the best behaved horses at the show!
