Pollen made her grumpy but now happy on bespoke
No end of changes of nose nets, bits face masks never helped like her Hack Up bespoke did!
I got my LouNee in February 2014, as soon as the grass started growing she became grumpy, stubborn and snatched at her reins alot. I put it down to her being young and spring grass. By May she was almost unridable! Her head shaking was classed as 'extreme' by the vet. It was suggested that I start trying shop brought supplements before intrusive examinations were made by vets. I'm not going to name the products I tried 6 of the top market ones, none touched her at all, her head-shaking was terrible and terrifying. I tried different bits, no noseband, different noseband, nets, full face masks, you name it I tried it. Nothing made any difference to Lou at all.
Then I was advised to speak to Alex. We had a long chat and within 4 days LouNee was starting her bespoke Hack Up. Day 5 I tried a hack, , and rode for almost 25 mins before her eyes started streaming and she started blowing, I couldn't get down my drive. By 2 weeks we where back hacking full time! We went to Thetford for a week, and did lots of organised pleasure/pub rides. LouNee still gets snorty, and politely asks to rub her nose, but other than that nothing at all. I've kept LouNee on a maintenance level all over winter, and started upping it today.
Alex has given me my horse back! I can't thank him enough!!!
