Denise, sorry to hear that illness is plaguing your family.. I hope everyone gets straightened out asap! Enjoy your saddle time, as it sounds like you need it.
I got back in the saddle yesterday for the first time since my unplanned dismount. My leg is still far from back to normal, but I figured if I could make it thru a day at work, I was sure going to try riding. Took Dream out and was surprised to find that posting the trot was no problem whereas cantering was uncomfortable. Fortunately, I don't think the swelling in my thigh was any worse after riding and it actually helped the swelling in my ankle (which felt totally normal for the first time after the ride.. only lasted a couple hours but I will take what I can get!).
The weather has been perfect here - upper 70s, sunny, light breeze, low humidity. May I order this weather for the rest of the season please?!
Plan to get back on Gamer this evening, when DH can be around to assist me.
