Absolutely, do not do anything that further irritates your back! I broke three of my vertebrae in a fall and rest was the best (and only..well, a horrendous back brace helped, too) medicine for your back. It's such a vital part of our bodies, we need to respect it.

Like others have said, groom, clean and watch. You don't want to do anything that will cause further damage and lengthen your time out of the saddle!

Thank you all so much! It is hard, but it is nice that I can see him and groom him. He is happy when I do anything with him. :)

I was in a car accident a year ago; not my fault, and I had to take about 6 months off of riding for pt. I'm having to take time off AGAIN because of reoccurring issues from said car accident. I draw, and would go pet horsies to keep my sanity.
