Wild Horse & Burro Expo

I took Ace down to the RLEC Thursday and Friday prior to our classes on Saturday to get him used to the grounds, as well as to provide exposure. He did excellent both days and attracted a lot of interest. Never once did he call to mares, drop or act studish. He made me so proud! Unfortunately Friday when I was finishing up riding him I asked him to stop, and as is typical he gave it his all and stopped hard. Apparently their was some loose ground in the Main indoor arena because he dropped his hip and stumbled. He was sore for the first time ever, in his stifle. I hosed him down several times Friday and Saturday morning but he still showed some soreness. I then had to make the difficult decision to scratch him from Saturday's classes. I could have pushed him and shown him on Saturday, but in no way was it worth it to me to risk future soundness for a show.

So I ended up showing Hope in two classes.

He was fine Sunday with just a little stiffness, and since then he has been riding and working excellently.
