New Equipment, Belly Band

Riding Journal

Awareness of the outside world. USEF Community Conversations, “Horses in Black Communities,” Monday, February 22, from 5-6:30 p.m. ET. Press release. I heard about it from Viva Carlos: USEF And Black History Month. While Viva Carlos shouldn’t have to perform the role of Speaker to White People in the blogging world/horse world, I’m glad they have taken it on.

Milton’s latest piece of bubble wrap is BellyBand(R) from Equifit. His dislike of being touched has expanded to include the rider’s leg. The militant in me sees this as misbehavior and thinks he should get over himself. The fact that he has the same reaction to being touched while grooming indicates that there is a physical component, at least in part.

A solution? perhaps. If nothing else, I have a very expensive blog post.

Stay safe. Stay sane.

  1. Good thought. Med advisor says that is part of the reason for Milton’s current diet. The few recommended therapies don’t translate well to horses. As D&T says, there’s not much one can do. I wonder if that’s why Milton rolls so much, both often and thoroughly. Self soothing.
