I finally rode my horse today.
It's been almost two weeks since I have ridden any horse. My neck and arm has been so bad that my chiro and my family doc thought it was a bad idea to ride, so I didn't. Then I started to feel better. Unfortunately I had a special project at work that I had to do on Wednesday and Thursday and that totally trashed my neck and arm again.
When I don't ride for awhile I get super crabby, and I was feeling that was Thursday night. So I decided that I'd ride just one horse today. And if there was going to be one horse that was ridden it would be Kaswyn.
Of course I lunged Fire and Albert first. Well, really first I had to shovel the sawdust into the sawdust room (it was almost all the way in the sawdust room when I got there so that was no big deal), pick poop out of the arena, and then water. But finally I got to ride Kaswyn. And my ride was just okay. Nothing great, nothing terrible. Kaswyn felt a little weak in his back, but then again I haven't been on him really in three weeks so I can't expect him to feel fantastic. He didn't feel bad though, so I guess that's something.
Tomorrow all the boys have a day off, and then back to work on Sunday. I don't know yet who I'll ride or how many. I'd love to ride them all but that might be pushing it. And if riding today makes me sore for Sunday I might not ride anyone.
Yep, being hurt sucks.
