Can't the dogs stay in while you ride??

I don't know how many miles I actually travel but each ride is on average 8 miles and then there are those around 20.

This year I will not be able to ride as many miles due to a slight set back of breast cancer :( But fear not, I WILL be back in the saddle in no time!

This is from Feb. 6, 13 Logandale trails (back of Valley of Fire) this is a ride that I have been promising my daughter for quite a while.

They're medical dogs so they have to be with me 24/7.

Show me a horseman who hasn't fallen and I'll show you a man who has never truly ridden.

Hey Gaited, glad you are getting your riding in. Sorry about the breastcancer. Hope you are back in the saddle quickly. I remember you from BWF.

Update on Drambuie:

I'm back for the vet and the news is not good

Drambuie has "kissing spine" and it is not a new issue. Some of the spinal spaces are amost closed. He has had this problem for a long time

He also has a tendon popped off his spine. Maybe a new injury, maybe from something previous, but re-injured when he went down in the hole.

His knees look funny because he had screws in them as a baby, an older type surgery done for crooked legs in foals. This is not a problem, just some history. Surgery as a baby might explain his strong affection towards people.

Also he is 9 not 7 yrs old.

So, the 1st thing to be done is let the horse rest until the tendon is repaired. To keep horse less active I am to put him in a small, level lot by himself. (I don't have a level spot, or a separate pen)

The tendon should be better in 3 months or so. No riding of course.

2nd step once tendon is healed, then he will need to get injections, it will be trial & error to see what will work.

Then he will need to be worked slowly and carefully to build up his back muscles. Horse must be worked in a round frame.

Maybe, at that point, he can be restarted under saddle and be carefully managed.

My previous horse, Baby, that I had to put down in March 2012 had repeated tendon issues in his fetlocks because the small bones in his feet were crumbling up and the tendons kept popping off. I wasn't able to ride him for the last 5 years of his life due to his condition.

So now, I finally find a sweet horse to fill the hole left by Baby, and he has kissing spine and a tendon popped off.

I am sick to my stomach. Heading to bed, I'm too sad.

Very sorry to hear that, Anita.

Sunny is still off work. Her back was a little less sore yesterday. Still very touchy with the curry but it took more pressure with my fingers to get a reaction. So, at least I know the off-time is helping.

I'm REALLY hoping she feels up to par by the 16th... because it's ROCKFORD!!! The most awesome, fun trail ride in the area. So, keep your fingers crossed we can go!
If not, oh well, we will hit it in the fall. Though I would rather go in the spring when it's cooler!
