|Glorious, beautiful soaking rain this weekend. Just what we needed!|
Bombers bits, just without the price tag!). I swapped it out on one of her bridles when it arrived Thursday night, and then Friday morning I tossed her out on the lunge first to make sure she was acclimated to the new piece of metal in her mouth before I climbed aboard. She was perfectly quiet in the mouth on the line (although more than willing to canter, and less than willing to transition back down into the trot, haha), which I found encouraging! We ended up having a really good ride -- she listened well to the bit and seemed markedly more comfortable, although obviously it will take more than one ride to make a full judgement on it.

|She also murdered a bell boot in the last 5 minutes of the ride when I was letting her hack out in the yard. It was on it's last legs anyway, but RIP fluffy boot!|

As I mentioned in Friday's post, I also got to attend a PEMF demo on Friday night hosted by my GMO. It was really awesome! I, of course, volunteered to be "pulsed", so I got to sit in the chair and it was definitely an interesting feeling. Not only did I sit in the human chair for a while, but then when the presenter pulled out the big loops to use on a horse, I also held them for a bit, hoping to see if it made a different for the residual soreness in my thumb -- and it did! Someone more local to me recently got a machine, so we'll see if that makes an appearance in any future posts ;)
I also had a SUPER busy weekend, so more to talk about there, but I think I'll save that for tomorrow! Did you have a pleasant, horse-filled weekend? Have you ever had any personal experience with PEMF?
