Tomorrow's the day.

We have our vet appointment and then right after our lesson with Barb Apple.

I'm excited/nervous. I am afraid the vet will tell me Denali's not getting much better, I'm afraid she'll tell me she's "good to go" and we'll then have to find a barn. I'm afraid that during her tests she'll fall. I can't put her into training in good faith if she's going to trip and fall consistently. That's unsafe for everyone. Horses trip sometimes, but they catch themselves. I don't know if Denali can catch herself. I am worried to ask about going to training. I'm worried about everything.

Don't even get me started on the lesson. My heart has been in my throat for two days. I'll post an update when I get home tomorrow! Wish us luck!

Aw, sweetie, I can't tell you not to worry, because I would be too, and your concerns are all legitimate considering your past with Miss D:) Still, try to roll with the day and take each piece of information as it comes to you...give yourself some time to process everything. We will be rooting for you!!

Good luck!!!! It will all be fine. Just think, had it not been for that snow storm, you wouldn't even have to worry about these decisions. :( I hope that Denali is on her best behavior for you, and passes all with flying colors!

Deep breath. Your lesson's gonna be great, and regardless of what the vet has to say, Denali is alive and well today, and doing what she does best - being your pony. :)

I know the feeling. I get like that too. Try not to worry too much as hard as that is. You know she's improving. Just see what the vet says and try not to think worst case scenario (I do that a lot so I know where it's coming from). I don't know what else to say. I guess I'm no better at reassuring other people than I am myself lol. I can't wait to hear how both the appointment and the lesson goes.
