One month after surgery....rode today! Okay, it was just ten minutes around the back yard on my almost 30 yr old QH mare, Sugar, but still exciting. Unexpected issues getting off, went to swing my bad leg over and got "stuck" halfway. Sugar was patient & we got it sorted out. Still using a cane to walk & have very little stamina, but pushing it a little more every day.
Lol, I'm glad I had my daughter babysitting me. I was caught completely off guard by the dismounting issue. I had been so focused on being able to get ON and ride....it never occurred to me that getting OFF might be a problem! Glad to know I'm not the only one.
