I know it's been awhile sense I have written in my blog. But, it's time to start again. For a physical update: I'm up and walking around without the aid of a walker or cane. I use a cane when I go to town just incase someone runs into me to help me keep my balance. I have a Doc appointment in Aug. and am hoping he will clear me to ride again.
In the mean time please welcome Kathleen (pictured above on Barz). She's a new student that is excited to learn to ride and a learn all she can about horses. She comes every week . She was taking lessons from another trainer. But, after 5 months and only about 10 minutes in the saddle, she decided to try something else. I met her at a benefit that the folks here in my community put on for Kathy and I, to help us with expenses. She is very new to riding but is eager and i Look forward to showing you her progress. This is her second ride in only 3 lessons. She's even thinking of about getting her own pony one of these days.
Oh, a little more detail on my recovery. My PT let me go 4 weeks early. She said, and I agreed, that there was not much she was able to help me with seeings how I was already doing everything she was going to show me. It usually takes up to 2 years for most folks to recover from and injury like this. If you do not know the story of my wreck with a horse, you can check out earlier issues of my blog.
So, I'm doing good. And I thank all of you who have supported Kathy and I thru this very tough time in our lives. Things could be a lot worse. I could be dead. I could be paralyzed. The list goes on and on of the things that Could have happened. I have a long ways to go but at lease I'm getting a shot at getting there.
Remember: Take your time with your horses. Don't get in a hurry. Don't ever trust your horse if he does not deserve it. These are the things I did not do that cause me my wreck.
Will try and keep you updated with info on what the heck I'm doing with horses and music.
