We have been doing a lot of trotting in the ring. Unfortunately I hurt my knee yesterday dismounting. How, I have NO idea. Somehow the toe of my boot got tangled in the stirrup, again don't ask me how, and my knee popped. Now it's all swollen and it hurts. I tried trotting today, and well, yeah it's going to be a few days on that. But thanks for the input :)
