Back on the horse, but does that mean I am a rider?

Gail Johnson - Thursday, August 31, 2017
So the leg has been tested a couple of times on HBH Woody to see how effective it is going to be!

It is slightly wonkier than my other already wonky leg but maybe that could somehow be a benefit (fingers crossed).  Early conclusions are that due to the stiffness in the knee it is very stable and still in walk (ie I can't move it!), but I am taking this as a good thing.  The few strides of trot I have tried demonstrated how unstable and weak the knee is as yet as it moved around at great speed - I have now named it my comedy leg. 

I will carry on with the physio exercises, keep taking the painkillers and keep trying.  HBH Woody is such a good boy he just looks at me along the lines of "haven't you realised yet its time to give up and let me retire?" but lets me get back on and keep trying anyway.  I'll be fully back in action soon Woody, you'll see !

Tibial Plateau Fracture - the pots are off !

Gail Johnson - Tuesday, July 04, 2017

After 6 long weeks I have been a whole week without my pots ! 
Life on crutches has become a whole lot easier even though not full weight bearing as yet.
Looking forward to summer again now pot free :-)  Physio starts later this week so important questions are; when can i drive & when can I ride.

The horses are having another unintended break from work but they don't seem to mind thankfully.  They are all doing very well enjoying the summer grass and relaxing, apart from Star who continues to self harm and acquired two parallel cuts to her off side yesterday an hour apart (!)
