Bad news...until then, no riding, no soaks in the bathtub (showers only), no lifting over 10 lbs, etc, etc, etc. I started crying when the nurse went over the instructions with me. She was a bit concerned over the crying until husband told her I was upset over the riding part, of which she said 'well, you can go visit your horse'. Clearly the women is not a rider.
But surely no riding does not mean I can not sit on my horse and walk her out after daughter rides her or husband lounges her...which I did Sunday night...and last night...and it would be so easy to just ask for a little trot...
Riva must sense something is up - she has been very tolerate of my hugs and kisses. She stands very still at the mounting block for me to get off and on and walks so carefully. Love my girl!
So for now, trainer Alexis will put rides on the Diva. She rode her last Friday and Sunday night - husband lounged her for me last night. She looks great - forward, round, happy. But it is oh so hard just to watch!
