I have actually been able to ride my horse at the new stable. She was really responsive and a pleasure to ride. I think she’s going to give me the confidence I need to get back on the trails again.
I have moved my horse to a lovely location closer to my job, making it so much easier to see her daily. Across the road from the stable, there are a series of trails for horseback riders only – about 25km of them. I look forward to tackling this in the spring.
Sadly the horse I rode at my sisters place, suffered a tragic accident and had to be put down. It was very traumatic for my sister and the details will stay with her. He was a lovely horse around 19yrs old.
On my last post about riding, I had recently had hip surgery and was going to wait until June to try to ride. That has come and gone and the summer has past, however, I did make some headway. After a long lovely trip across Canada via Westfalia van, I began to feel more flexible and stronger. Fast forward two weeks later, I sat on my sisters horse and it felt great. It was as if I never had a twenty-year break from riding. This past weekend I finally rode my own horse after owning her for more than a year. It felt great.
