Spa Day for Freedom

Between the bugs and the humidity, I’ve been less than motivated to ride. So, when I pulled Freedom into the barn yesterday, I started our session with a massage. He’s a funny horse. Sometimes he just hates to be touched — to the point where he can get almost aggressive. But yesterday I found just the right spots and he enjoyed it so much that I decided to keep going. Yawning, licking and chewing are signs of release. You can see that he got into it. When we were done, I put his fly sheet back on and turned him out. Sometimes it’s good just to give your horse a treat!
