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.

I had the same thing happen to me-got my leg stuck coming off my mare LOL. Couldn't swing it down, couldn't swing it back over top-scared the Dickens out of my trainer. So glad you're doing well!

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.

nope. All my trainer kept saying was "I'd have to call (my DH) and tell him you fell off." with real fear in her voice ;)
