Well I could write a long story but I'll keep it short. I was an avid hunter/jumper and I got into a bad accident and left me with a concussion, bulged discs, arthritis, and joint problems in my lower back. And I am trying my hardest to listen to my doctor when he says no more riding, but its killing me not to do what I used to do. But whenever I go to ride my horse, I am on bed rest for days after. And my horse is a rescue horse, so no matter what he's staying with me even if I cannot ride him. He is exercised daily by being lunged and whatnot.
But I'm trying to find alternative styles of I guess riding, or any horsemanship activities. I was thinking of sending my horse (Bayberry) to amish school and him being a cart horse, I just cannot stop being around horses, but I know with my condition, riding like normal is not an option for me.
Please everyone, give me advice or any sort of ideas.
