This would be a good time to ground/respect work with your horse... simply grooming, stroking, hanging out in the pasture. Not everything in horse ownership is about riding.
Let us know how things go!
Agreed! You could also try teaching him some tricks or clicker training, lots of ground work, lots of grooming, just visiting. I wasn't injured but my youngest horse was in a wreck we had back in the fall, he was on stall rest for months, then very limited what we have been able to do since then. He is the shiniest horse on the place :) I also think we developed a closer bond in that time even though I wasn't able to ride him and he now plays fetch lol! Don't get too down, get creative and you will both get through it just fine, maybe even better
