    Cleared to ride!

    Oh boy. This is going to be long, sorry.

    Last year I was diagnosed with supraventricular tachycardia, a heart condition. No surprise, my heart has been crap my whole life, but I got really discouraged when they told me I can randomly have heart attacks and such. (Heart recorded at almost 300bpm yay) I wasn't allowed to ride for MONTHS. (Drift wasn't ridden from August to yesterday. I broke my saddle as a result, and posted about it somewhere else) I still rode my blonde ponyface, because he's always been really calm and gentle with people, but I wasn't allowed to work the Arabs and other horses at all. It sucked. Now it's getting warmer and I can ride again, and I think I'm dealing with months of withdrawals all at once! Galloping, jumping, tons of trotting... The boys are going to look like tanks by the time I get it out of my system.

    Thank God my guys are patient. I feel really bad about making Drift sit all winter, and now that he's lost his muscle I'm kind of mad at myself. Oh well, not much I can do about it. If you've got a medical issue, don't be discouraged. You'll make it through. :)

    Oh and by the way, taking the metal roller of a western girth to the cheek bone on the first ride back then having my bad ankle pop repeatedly after riding isn't a bad omen, is it?

    Congratulations! :)

    I'm sure you are extremely excited to hop back in the saddle and go galloping across the valley but I would highly recommend taking it slow, at least for a few weeks. It will give you a chance to get your muscle memory back as well as getting your horses back in sync.

    Have fun!
