Diesel and a broken tail bone

Haven't posted any pictures lately so I went out to the barn and took some pictures. It was super sunny and my battery was dying so I didnt get any time to make them not look so washed out.

Also, I fell during barrels this past weekend...(Diesel decided the gate man was going to eat him ) and broke my tailbone...again. So no riding for me. Any ideas of some stuff I can do to keep him in shape while keeping me as..stationary as possible?

Weirdest position ever...


Ignore the half a tail:

oh man I know how you feel. I've broken my tailbone twice (i have a bone disease.) Once when someone pulled my feet out form under me and another time when I had a horse kick me in my behind.

If you have a round pen you could sit in a chair with a whip and free lunge. You could also always get someone to help run practice barrels on him while you're out. Just some suggestions.

Ugh. Yeah, the last time I broke it was on him as well. Darn horse!

Im going to see if I can find one of the equine majors at the college to work him while I can't. Good idea about the roundpen. Maybe I will haul the boyfriend out to help me set up some stuff so he isnt just running in circles.

I would ride your horse for you!

That is, of course, if I didn't live a bazillion miles away. :P

Your horse is so darn pretty! In the third picture down he looks like he is guilty as all heck, and trying to look cute for you! Hehe

And I have never broke my tailbone, but I can not imagine how bad that would hurt!!! =(
