    A little R&R

    Hey folks,

    I have been MIA recently to take a little break for some much needed care for myself as well as for Blue.  So here’s an update on what’s going on…

    Last week Blue went to UC Davis. After 2 months of not being able to diagnose her lameness, the vets there took very good care of her and 2 ultrasounds later they found that she had injured two of her lateral ligaments. She will be getting a special shoe, shock wave treatment and 6-9 months of recoup (No riding and confined to a small area) and physical therapy with increased amounts of exercise as she heals. Blue is home and happy to be spoiled with a deluxe double-wide stall full of shavings and is glad to be on her path to healing and feeling better. I would like to send a big shout out to Barb Peterson for transporting us to UC Davis and for her help and support. 

    In other news... I just registered for my Equine Facilitated Learning Certification and I am getting very excited! In just a few months I'll be heading over to Nevada to attend the OK Corral Series and earn my certification with Greg Kersten, founder of EAGALA. To learn more about this certification program you can visit my website at and find links under resources.

    Thank you to those who have been sending me links regarding possible school horses; they are much appreciated. I have been in contact with the owner of the three mares and will continue to have an open dialogue as the program gains financial momentum. A campaign launch party is in the works…more details soon to come!

    Happy trails from Braided Tales!
