I was planning to do Drop Your Stirrups December when I got my boy back...

But, after my accident that happened over the weekend, I won't be walking for over a month. So I have no idea when I will be able to ride again... )':

The sensitivity of the internet baffles me.

Finally my picture from a few days ago! I'm usually a loner but this day I had another girl take my picture :) I also did no stirrups today and rode bareback a few nights ago. I may not be able to ride much but I'm trying!

Did ride #3 today. Horsey had a bug up his skirt or something and threw it some nice spooks. Didn't go anywhere. Lasted longer than I ever have posting the trot and hips are starting to loosen up for sitting it. Pain hasn't set in yet. Waiting to hear from my thighs. I wish they had some sort of equally torturous month for the upper body. I would love a nice core to go with my new legs of steel.

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.

Is there a green smiley face to indicate a severe degree of envy?

Does walking 10 minutes without stirrups count? On a weird forest path?

It's been two days. What are your thighs telling you? =b

Here's one from 2 days ago. I dropped my stirrups a little while riding and got one picture of me without them. All my 'riding' pictures were with stirrups, I had some things I was working on!
