Not being able to ride!

Is anyone else in the same position as me? Due to an injury, I haven't been able to ride for the past 4 weeks, and it will be another 3 or so weeks until I can ride again. I know it's not as bad as some cases, and at least I will be able to ride again, but I'm going crazy! What is everyone's best ways to get over the withdrawal and make it somewhat easier?

I love to ride, but not owning a horse or knowing anyone who does, and moving to a place that has no public stables means I pretty much can't ride any more at all. Which really, really sucks.

At least be glad that someday you'll be able to ride again. You have that to look forward to. I don't.

I own a horse, and would love to ride, however my work doesn't allow me too much of the time. Your horse will be ok, and you will be too.

It's not life or death.

I couldnt do it- I've broken my ribs ankle and foot and still rode anyway.. its how I get rid of my stress- I can't just not ride!

Maybe you can just hang out in the barn for a while? If I can't ride just bein around them makes me happy too.

There's been a few times over the years that the Dr has grounded me. It's not fun but it happens. I will admit to ignoring orders before, wouldn't suggest it in some cases...I've made that mistake a bit soon after a surgery & not the best idea I've ever had.

Groom, groom & groom some more. You'll have the slickest, shiniest horse out there. Plus, nothing better for toning surface muscles than vigorous grooming.

Hope you heal up well and are back in the saddle soon!

That's when you start fine tuning groundwork and advancing it to liberty. Even when wearing a cast, I'd ride the quad into the pasture. The horse always came to me and we enjoyed together time. It's not always about riding. It's also a good time to give the tack a good cleaning.

My daughter injured herself the day after we decided to buy her horse. She's out for a total of 8 weeks. The horse is boarded.

During this time, she is visiting 3-4 times a week. She grooms and free schools.

No riding here for at least 4 more weeks! Foot surgery really sucks! Can;t do anything and I'm afraid to go into my kitchen, my 12 yr old son and husband. Need I say more?!?!?!?!!! Lol
