I can join the clumsy club! Just listen for the sounds of stuff falling and me groaning after I trip on/run into something, and you'll know where I am. I can trip on a flat surface, run into a wall in the plain day light, 'lean on a wall that isn't there' (and end up falling or almost falling), you name it, if it's clumsy I have done it. I amuse my family and friends a lot!
On the note of you getting hurt, sorry to hear that. I really hope you get better soon. Though, sorry to say, I doubt that you'll be riding in 10 days. In the mean while could you start driving (ground driving) your mare? That might help a bit with her craziness when you get back in the saddle.
They did say it could be up to 6 weeks (Maybe longer depending on how well I heal) but will evaluate me riding in 10 days when the immobilizer brace comes off and of course I'll have stipulations. Im pretty close with my dr and rode with his approval during both my pregnancies and other injuries. He knows my skill level and my horses. I'm trying to keep optimistic about it too :) I know knees take forever to heal so *fingers crossed* and its hard to keep me off the ranch LoL :)
I'm the same with tripping on a flat floor, running into things, dropping things, you can always hear me fumbling around :) amuses everyone around me too :)
On the note of ground driving: that's probably what Ill do and since riding her wont be an option I am going to have my trainer ride her. She really needs to be ridden and even if I can ride soon I doubt my dr will let me ride a green horse :( guess its me and the old gelding for the next few weeks at least. Posted via Mobile Device
WS: halter breaking babies is always fun :) LoL I've been working with an untouched filly and have finally gotten her to willingly halter after a couple months. She's still a bit confused about the leading part LoL babies are fun
Tiny: 10 days is the minimum and me being optimistic LoL the immobilizer brace comes off and I get a smaller, bendable brace in 10 days plus the Dr said we could "talk" about me returning to riding at that appointment so *fingers crossed* LoL
Everyone: Thank You!! For the well wishes :) Posted via Mobile Device
Thanks :) and I'll definitely be riding again just as soon as this knee is healed :) hopefully sooner rather than later but I'm just thankful its not as bad as it could have been. I really feel for WS and the others who are out long term. I got off pretty lucky so far :) Posted via Mobile Device
Still out on injury :( my knee started feeling better so I decided to fly a kite with my 6 year old. Tripped in a hole the stupid dog dug chasing a mole and messed knee up again along with fracturing my ankle. That was 5 days ago now. When it rains it pours :( I still can't believe I did it But my hubby thinks its funny :) last time I broke a bone was 2 summers ago, running through the grass and tripped, broke my elbow. Hubby says no more green grass for me LoL :)
On the bright side my mare's feet issues are cleared up and yesterday her ground manners were better than they have EVER been. Im kind of wondering if I was hindering this responsiveness (Actually I know I was). I can't move fast right now so I've become more aware and on my mare about every little thing. If she acts up I'm more likely to get hurt right now so I am a lot more strict and don't let anything slide.
It shows that I need to keep on my game and my mare is a lot more responsive than I thought. I also am learning that I think I baby her way too much lol
For anyone curious here is a pic of my ankle...
Immediately after it happened
I'm in an air cast so that I have up and down motion to prevent worse ligament damage Posted via Mobile Device
Gah. Wear a knee brace for the next few months when you ride or go outside to play or really just walking lol. I tore several ligaments in my knee when my horse went over on me and it took months to fully heal but I was riding after a few weeks just kept a brace on it.
But now with the ankle maybe you just need to be wrapped in bubble wrap.
