First Ride Since Knee Surgery!!
I am almost bursting at the seams I am so ecstatic!! I "rode" -- haha!!

Linda, my lessee, lunged Denny first and got on him just to test the waters.... as you can see, he was a complete dolt. He's usually not like this on the lunge line, but he was very full of himself; it's the warm weather and the shedding and all that stuff. Yay spring!!
Anyways, so he was a bit of a dolt on the lunge and was quite spirited for Linda while he was under saddle for her. I insisted that I get on, though I was a tiiiny bit nervous. Tweaked the knee on the way up, but it felt SO good to be back in the saddle - oh my gosh. I'm still on cloud 9.
Denny, the saint that he is, wouldn't walk forwards for me. I had to KICK him to go forwards! He walked like he was on eggshells, one step at a time; it was SO cute!! Linda was laughing at how careful he was being - his ears were fixed on me and just step-pause-step-pause-step... oh I love that horse SO much.
