Riding with a broken wrist...
A couple days ago, playing basketball, I jumped up to try and do a slam dunk and fell onto the pavement, and of course I landed on my arm. So now I have a break in my wrist and a pretty pink cast for the next few weeks.
My orthopaedist told me I could probably ride a bit, but his concern is if I were to fall off and possibly shatter my wrist or worsen the break.
What are your opinions on some light riding with a cast? I'd probably just be doing some light trotting and maybe a few short canters, no jumping though.
All input is welcome, I just need some help in deciding whether it is a good idea or not.
