good luck. I'm sure it will take a little time to get things "working" right again.

broken leg

I had a horse accident and broke both of my arms, had surgery, and was in PT for 14 mts. It was hard to get back on.

I started with a dead broke horse that I knew I could trust, rode him a few times before getting on my frisky guy.

I had to talk to myself alot, and say it was going to be OK, it was that horse, not all are alike. Now about 5 yrs later, I don't even think about the accident anymore.

But I do have a rule, never ride a horse before seeing someone else ride it first.

Hope this helps.
