That reminds me...last weekend, I went to a balanced riding clinic that was being held where I board. Two older women showed up. Both close to 70 or a little over. I knew of them but had never met them personally but knew that they ride every single day.
One was wearing a sling and her arm was bandaged from wrist to above the elbow.
She said she was moving some cows this morning when one turned on her horse and her horse reared and she came off. She landed on concrete and cut her arm on something. She had 15 stitches!
And she was there to watch the clinic since doc said she couldnt ride FOR THE REST OF THE WEEKEND!
I told her how impressed I was and she said life is too short to stop!
Stan, hope your back feels better soon. All in all it seems like Bugs did pretty well considering the circumstances.
And wrist exercises...wasn't sure where that was heading!!!
Hunter...glad he made it safely and that it ends up being the perfect home for him.
Nicker...I would have been terrified if I spotted a loose horse while out on the trail! Glad it turned out ok.
I went to a new friend's house today. She has 7 horses and 2 donkeys. I had never really touched a donkey before and her donkey gives hugs! She also has some draft horses. Riding a large draft is on my bucket list and she is going to let me ride one of hers one day. Here is a pic of my donkey hug. Look at those ears!!! Sorry about the pic of my backside. Hubby had the camera.
