Squeezing in A Ride

I'm gearing up to be out of the for almost five months. I've been out to see the ponies and usually bring a minion to do the heavy lifting. Yesterday was a rare day when I felt good enough to ride. I've been really careful about bending. I always get help tying shoes and putting socks on. I have cut out walking up/down hills. I wear yoga pants or breeches every day because I can get those on w my left foot and a grabber. 

I'm thrilled that my horse can go weeks not under saddle and he will let me hop
on. He throws in the occasional hop in and spooked a bit when he thought a deer was a horse eating monster but he's still more solid than most horses twice his age. His spooks are limited to head shakes and snorts. He's such a good boy!!  

Since I'm sure you don't want to hear me whine about my hip here are happy pics of the pony. 


  1. I'm glad you got to ride. He really is such a handsome boy!

  2. I hope you can squeeze a ride in yourself before the little one makes life exciting.

    1. Me too!! I'm trying to get my sister to go out there with me today to ride her first just to see how she will be. She's good after a spell but we just don't know after her surgery.

  3. Yay I'm glad you got to ride!!!!! Chrome is the same way about sitting for weeks and then letting me hop right back on no problem. Don't you just love that?? When is surgery? I hope you aren't kept waiting forever.
