A Healing Ride

Last November I had a terrible fall from my horse - it required surgery and some pretty intense rehab (and NO knitting).

I've ridden my horse, but we've stayed in the safety of the arena. I've been invited on a trail ride, but was having too much anxiety, so I hung back.

Yesterday I took a baby step! I decided I would need to take it slow and that my first ride outside of the arena would NOT be a trail ride. After riding her bareback in the arena, I put her saddle on and we ventured out around the grounds. We went maybe 200 or 300 feet and back, but I rode her in the big wide open! We even trotted!

So, my recovery continues to progress and I'm getting "my life" back!
