Wow! So sorry you were injured, but glad you and Selena are ok. The mark if a true horsewoman: at least it didn't happen to my horse!"

Get well soon. Sucks about the summer but you definitely have the right attitude.

Please take very good care of that knee. Do EXACTLY as instructed. If you aren't supposed to get back on a horse yet, then don't. Those of us w/the high threshold for pain often times ignore the severity, we just don't feel like others. (I speak from experience)
However, knee injuries create cumulative damage - it can be years later before we properly assess the damage. You want to be able to walk (and ride) at 50 and 60. Best wishes!

Thanks!

It's a he, his name is Zico. He's 3/4 Blue Heeler and 1/4 Border Collie. He's going to learn to be a cow dog. He's got a ton of natural heel in him, and he's so smart. Most trainable puppy I've ever owned.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

Thanks for the jingles guys. I am going to spend the fourth of july with my boy - So at least I have that! I can pet on his old gelding if I need my horse time...lol. Selena won't be back until Sunday, Mom took her camping at my request. I worry about her mooching treats off of everyone and getting fat....lol

I have hoped on my horse after she dragged me (well I REFUSED to let go of the reins...)and I hobbled around the entire weekend from the lovely bruise I had on my thigh and back (from rocks). I did the same the year before after she dragged me through cactus. Took months to get it all out. Everyone thought I was nuts to keep riding when I could hardly walk. I say it a "cowgirl" thing XD! Apparently camping is jinxed with mishaps as well lol!

I am glad you and your mare are ok! You have an amazing mare to be well behaved after she was kicked at and after you fell. Gingles for you! I hope you can ride again soon. Who knows, maybe the doc will ok you for walk only riding and you just keep your foot out of the stirrup.

You are one tough cookie!! Glad it wasn't worse. Here's wishing you super speedy healing. :)

I don't blame you, if I was in camp I would've sucked it up like you did. But Jeez Louise, that's a serious ouchie! Heal up quick and while you are in sick bay, spend more time here with us hehe.

Hehehe...Yes, time to enjoy more HF time it seems. :)

Selena is a rockstar. I don't typically believe in that "uber strong bond" thing with horses, but this experience really changed my mind. Not only did she stay right with me after I fell off, she packed me back to camp like a pro, and after she had been tied up and my companions were bandaging my wound she would NOT look away from me. She had her eyes and ears on me in my chair, nickered every now and then, and had this really concerned expression. She stood still for me while I got on and off, even when there was food nearby (NOT like her...She normally dives for the food and I spend a lot of time swearing while she walks away ) She walked slow with me while I leaned on her neck for support, she acted as my "Wheelchair pony" going back and forth to the bathroom, and every time I would get up after I put her away she would walk to the front of the stall and nicker for me. She's NEVER displayed this sort of behavior before. It's kind of rattling my brain a little bit.

I don't mean to get all sappy and sentimental, but I found this picture again from the winter and I posted it with the caption: "We lose a little of ourselves in what we love....But we find ourselves, too."
