So, I feel a need to write, even though I don’t have much to report. Oh wait. Yes I do. I RODE MY HORSE TODAY AND IT DIDN’T HURT MY BACK!!!!!
It deserved all caps.
I did a simple dressage ride for 23 minutes and it felt lovely. I had my second spinal injection last Monday and I immediately felt better. Not perfect, but better. My hope is second time is a charm, but I will admit that it doesn’t feel great all the time. So, I’ve begun my physical therapy exercises and working on my core. Georgie was great today. I am not asking her much, as I am not strong enough to ask for much, but it was really great.
This week we have a jump lesson scheduled followed by a dressage lesson. So, I should have LOTS to write about. Then I am headed to New Orleans followed by a dressage schooling show where I will try the Training 3 Day test for the first time. Not great timing, as I will have only ridden a few times followed by a break before the show but whatevs. Georgie and I can handle this. I think. I am excited to work in a large arena, that will be a first as well.
Ok, so more excitement next week I hope!
