It's Been Awhile

A few weeks ago I had another fall off Bear (which Robin wrote about here). It was by far my hardest fall yet. It left my left shoulder, hips, and ribs feeling pretty bad. Bad enough that I haven't felt up to getting back out there for some riding, or for doing anything much more intense than reading or walking to work.

I don't think Bear minded the time off. I did get to spend some easy time with him and Steen on a couple of the days. And Robin has been putting some short rides on both of them. It is nice that they're getting more time to hang out.

Today while I was at work she went and rode Bear in the arena. They did a lot of walking and trotting. Then she tried Steen's blanket on him.

It is just a tad big, but one size down would be way too small. And I don't think he'll mind the extra neck coverage at all.

My shoulder has started to feel a lot better these past two days, but I think I'm going to wait until after the holidays just to make sure everything is OK. Then it will be back to riding.
