Good news from old lags

Big congratulations to Hannah and Patsy who went jumping this weekend - I've posted updates on them before and they seem to just get better and better!  
Like most owners, Hannah keeps Patsy at a livery yard and like most owners she has had to work really hard, get creative about managing her grazing, have a bit of good luck and live with lots of ups and downs to achieve this level of barefoot performance. Rehab we can do here - ongoing improvement is down to the owner!

Patsy has overcome a host of problems, including not just foot problems but suspected kissing spine, so its even more impressive that she is now jumping so well and clearly loving it :-)

I also saw this great post from Flynn (aka the Original Flynn) on Facebook - I really think more rehab horses should get online and have their own pages...!

All together now: awwwwww!
Happy trails, Patsy and Flynn!

They look fabulous!

I would love to hear more about how owners who have to keep their horse in a livery situation can make it work. What creative things has Hannah (and others) come up with? Any tips or helpful ideas?

Kelly, have a look at the post on Grass - managing the risks from last week as there are some tips on there :-)
