posted this from another thread-
i rang up my riding club to ask if I could possibly join the last lesson tomorrow because I have to work from 11-2 and I got the Doctor certificate for my riding instructor as well as I had an operation done on my spine 9 months ago and I am now fully allowed to ride again. But apparently theres some discussions going on about me at the vlub and what should be done for my back. Apparently there was something about doing disability riding instead and if I do ride someone will have to lead me around but theres no need at all because my specialist said when I hit the 6 month mark I could start horseriding but only doing walking and on a very quiet horse and then when I hit the 9 month mark I could start fully riding with no restrictions at all and they are considering putting me on a little kids pony and having someone lead me around when only a few days ago I was walking around on a 16hh by myself with noone leading me and a lady giving me instruction if needed and I was even going to trot but I've never ridden such a tall horse so just wanted to get the feel of him first and know how his stop is and how he turns at a walk etc. I just dont see how its fair that I'm fully capable to ride the quiet horses at my club, at a walk trot and when I get back into it, canter and do what I love doing. Everyones treating me like a fragile little leaf, even though my back is healed. Sure theres a big risk of falling off and doing damage, but there is for everyone when they get on a horse. I waited 6 months, then only did limited walking on Blacki, a 15.3hh stb and got on Prince, a quiet kids pony 12hh, bareback at a walk once and now that I'm at 9 months I can do anything.
Apparently it may be because they dont want to take the chance of me falling of and the insurance?

Im just so confused now because I'm fully capable of riding and it seems like I;m getting kicked out of my riding club, even though I've put 3 years+ worth of work into there, even when healing from my operation I was over there baggin poo, helping kids tack up, helping with anything. Its just so stupid!

That is what I thought they might say. I would look for an alternative place to ride.
