My back issues drug on for what seemed timeless. The pain had its own schedule regardless of what I wanted scheduled. My daughter was working with Calypso. She would lounge her in the arena, teaching her commands such as whoa, trot, etc. Then came the saddle which Calypso wasn’t very pleased about. She put up a bucking fit when she had it put on the first time.
My daughter had never trained a horse before, and Calypso had never been taught. I know, I know, this was a poor combination, but there were no other options available.
