So sorry.
Will you forgive me for saying that it might be time for you to walk away from this horse?

Arnica is pills or ointment. In this case she would take pills.
I rub gel on sore muscles all the time that I just realized was arnica based.
GH, do you need me to mail you some?
I am ever so worried, you've got to be hurting to be this quiet.

I'm walking away from him now, trying to explain that sort of hurt to medical staff is difficult. DH though is very much on the ha has to go banner.

Just heard that Cody has sold, Willow is. Being ridden ready for sale, Cassie will take Ben and put some. Hours on him and market for me. Then we will bring Angel home. For me to play with

I've regrettably, in my time, found that the best life lessons are frequently painful or expensive or sometimes both so cyber hugs only from me at this time as the real ones would hurt too much. I'm glad you're still staying in the game.

So sorry about your injuries. Falls seem so much worse when you're an adult. I hope you experience a quick recovery.

Don't worry about the nurses understanding, we certainly do understand that even though he's caused you all this pain, you love him and it's hard to let him go.

Happy to hear from you and hoping that you're on the mend.

Sometimes we have to hurt for a while to do what's right for the long term
In my head I'm still 18 but my bones tell me I'm not. I know that I cant take the risks I used to and riding doesn't have to be a challenge any more - its just about having fun
Ben sounds like a wonderful sort of horse for a fit young person to take on and make some use of so I'm sure he'll find the right home
I remember my dad coming to see me in hospital after one of my badly executed cross country falls and saying 'Isn't it about time you gave up all this nonsense"
Such sympathy and it made me so angry at the time but I had 4 young children to think about so I did wise up, rein myself in and soon realized there were safer ways to compete and still get a buzz from it.
Look forward to getting out and enjoying your new horse.

Wow. I do so understand the pain in walking away from the horse. But sometimes that is the smart thing to do.

I hope the new horse is a dear love that treats you well and you have a great time with.
