A day early of my 12 week goal I got back on my horse. I had my boot on, rammed right into the stirrup and got on from a mounting block; getting off I slid down very carefully. It went ok but made me appreciaate we don’t just sit there like a sack of potatoes (non riders think skiing - legs like shock absorbers - not just weight on the bum!) - I could feel the movement in the tendon and sadly the weakness! Only went out for half an hour and no ill effects afterwards so I guess it is a start and like everything will have to build up slowly, but need to seriously get going on the strength training. Won’t bore everyone with more detail as I don’t think there are any other horsey bloggers out there - never found any in my searches - probably because it is not usually an injury associated with horse riding. Will do a page later for others that might come along later.
