Rhonda, I am SO glad you got through that OK!! Hope a little time off will let it heal completely. I need you to show me some trails later in the spring!!

Forgot I was going to add: When we went to try the TWH mare, I took her out to the trailer and pulled her up by the fender to get on her the first time. Her PO was amazed I would do that with a horse I did not know. I had to test her...she is DH's horse!!

Yea, I'd say you're right Rhonda Lynn.....I've got a mess here at the house.....I've been dragging huge pine tree limbs out of the yard and into the pasture where I can burn them.....I'm darn sure glad I've got a small tractor....even though we've had a couple of days above freezing, we still have patches of snow, but the worse thing is the ground is soupy.....I dislike the mud more than the snow...

I suspect the trails in the mountains are suffering from blowdowns as well....and this is a time where I suspect a small chain saw would sure be handy to have on a ride....

Miss Lacy is so....bored....it's been a nasty cold winter, Pam's health has been poor and we haven't rode much sense November....

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

The greatest injustice in the riding world is that taller people's stirrups are closer to the ground.

Rhonda Lynn, way to Cowboy Up! I twisted my knee like that and it stayed sore for almost a year, but then got totally better. I hope yours gets well sooner.

My knee is MUCH better, I didn't ride the Saturday after the incident. I went to the chiropractor, she adjusted and I felt much better. She also suggested a good therapeutic massage.
I got one this past Monday, it was heaven!! The knee and my headache were so much better after the massage. I rode this past Saturday for a short 3 hour ride. My knee was slightly sore afterward but I can now walk NORMAL. I am still taking advil for the soreness but I would say I am ALMOST well!!
THANKS for the good thoughts coming my way.

Rhonda

Hi Rhonda, as someone that injured a knee many years ago. (not on a horse but in a car accident) It was a long time before I realized it is cumulative damage.
Please get the knee checked out anyway by an Ortho. I say this because, even small changes in your knee can make you unaware of 'compensations' you make walking sometime. You can damage tendons, ligaments and soft tissue that may need to be addressed. Leaving them unattended can lead to major problems down the road.
Many years later, I had a total knee replacement. makes me wonder if I would have needed it, if only I had cared for myself properly along the way. Best wishes to you.
