Exams are over and hopefully I’m quickly transforming back from a frazzled, stressed monster into a normal girl. One thing that did help this week was going to the barn everyday. After every exam in the morning I would go out and hack Angel before I continued studying for the next exam. Yes, it did take up a couple extra study hours, but it was worth it. I was trying my best not to worry and stress so much because A.) I’m a senior who’s into college B.) what’s the point of stressing? So, going to the barn gave me 2 hours to forget about things everyday which was a very welcome break.
To make things better, Angel was fabulous this week each time we flatted. The week before when the fields were like an ice rink and there was no turnout, she was a sassy beast who couldn’t wait to run and play. This week she was very willing to work and on her almost best behavior.
Unfortunately I’ve noticed in the past few weeks she’s experienced a few rubs (saddle, girth, leg/spur area). This winter she was clipped twice, which is probably the cause. Still, does anyone have any tips for preventing these rubs? I already spray her with an EQyss botanical hydrating spray (for her wintery dry skin) and put on EQyss cream/gel on the areas with rubs. But, anymore suggestions are really appreciated!
