I just have to share this!
A week after my highschool graduation earlier this summer, my doctor took bone out of my back in oder to releive pressure on my compressed nerves. After blowing that third disk in my back, I wasnt sure what would happen. But 6 weeks after my surgery, I went on a four day trail ride camping trip with a group of 11-15 year old girls. And WOW! Its the first time in months that I was able to ride my horse with little to no discomfort. My back side and knees were more sore than anything else! It made me wonder if trail riding was ultimately a good alternative to ring riding? Maybe the secret to feeling better is to just set you and your horse free of the ties an arena places on you?
Welcome to our group Karen.
I hope the weather cooperates and you get back to riding soon!
Hello everyone, newbie here. Diagnosed with MS in 2003, got back into riding 2006 when I was given a retired racehorse "Slew O'Rhythm". Best thing i ever.
Long cold winter finally comng to an end here so hoping to get into a more regular routine. In the winter I go to the gym and take yoga classes. I also have a Wii at home and like using Wii fit to keep up fitness, balance, coordination so that it doesn't take me as long to get back into riding. Stable where I keep him has an indoor but not insulated, so once we hit the -20 mark (dec/jan/feb) kinda puts a damper on ridng.
i know when spring is here cuz also sheddng time! Chapstick and sheddng horses just don't mix.
Hey people, how are you all doing? Getting any riding in?
I had an awful cold and as a result my MS symptoms are worse, especially my hands and coordination. I love the riding horses, they tell me long before I notice that I am getting worse. They are also more accurate that the neurologists and other doctors This helps me, I have more time to come up with solutions that work!
I have been able to ride pretty regularly, so they also give me regular physical therapy.
Keep riding. That's my motto!
