I'm planning my return very carefully. I think I'll start by taking some lessons. Don't laugh.
A beginner safe horse in an arena will let me know if my mind has healed as well as my bones. I had to rebuild my confidence once and if I have to I can do it again, but I'm hoping it won't be necessary. I won't know though until I settle into the saddle. If it's ok, I'll be looking for a total confidence builder. I figure by the time I'm really riding again, I'll be 65. I don't care if the horse is safe with kids --- they bounce!!! I think my question will be "Would you put your granny on him?" LOLOL
