Hahaha! My post was confusing. The photo is of a Dressage Simulator by Racewood. Here's a photo of an Equicizer:

Does Trigger look like that? I think the Equicizer is pretty standard for therapeutic riding facilities.

Pumba sounds lovely. The flaxen mane and tail always stand out so. And his gentle disposition makes you want to kiss him, I'm sure. What a good boy he sounds. Yeah, that's a nice solution--older and mildly compromised horses are given a home and important but untaxing work to do. And, people in recovery or challenged in some way get the benefit of interacting with them and riding them. Win/win for all concerned! 

Enjoy the rest of the summer program. Trot and post if you can--I know you're brave enough--but don't do it if your body isn't ready.

Stay well and stay COOL!

I think it's a big success to be riding at all after everything you went through, Carol! I'm sure it's frustrating not to be riding as you were, but I truly admire your commitment to be on horseback.  

I'm glad the facility and you are being smart about riding in the excessive heat. Better for everybody--including the horses, of course--to take it easy. I love the "rocking horse."  Is it an Equicizer?  I used a dressage simulator by Racewood a few times--very cool! (That's not me.) Simulators can really help!

I don't think you've mentioned Pumba to me. Tell me about him/her. I'm glad you got to groom, and that your body could handle the work, Carol. Simply being around horses is SO therapeutic!

Stay cool, stay hydrated, stay well (have you been able to get fully vaccinated?), have a great summer, and give those horses a hug and a treat for me.

A. XOXO

Happy, Happy Easter, Carol!

Sounds GREAT, Carol! What a wonderful thing it is to be able to do your exercises and further your healing while on horseback. Just being out in the fresh air and smelling and touching a horse makes everything better, I think. And healing exercise seems much more natural on a horse than working on a machine. A half-an-hour was a nice long workout. Good job!!

I am SO happy that HorseAbility is accessible to you. Therapeutic riding programs are such wonderful things--unfortunately, there just aren't enough of them. I wonder if HorseAbility gets state or Federal funding. NY is such a fabulous state for social services. You pay high taxes, but the citizenry gets a lot for them.

Keep up the good work and fabulous progress!

I am SO happy to hear you're back in the saddle, Carol!!! I know how deep the desire to do so runs, but it does take guts after a painful accident like yours. What's cool is that you're riding again just a little beyond six months after the accident and waaaaaay before a year! That's good healing.

The folks at HorseAbility sound great--knowledgeable and caring. They were obviously very careful to be sure your mounting went safely and well. And "good boy, Joe" for being quiet and cooperative.

Those 20 minutes of walking around the arena on Joe must have felt so exultant and freeing! That's quite a feat. And, although you were stiff and in some pain afterward, it sounds manageable. Hooray! I just can't express how happy I am for you. 

As you say, I imagine that with each lesson the pain will decrease and the mobility will increase. Here's to a wonderful Spring and Summer of riding!

A. XOXOXOX

2020 has been so difficult, it calls for a two-image Christmas! I hope you have a wonderful day, Carol, and that the new year is a much easier and freer one for all of us.

XOXOX A.

I hope you have a happy Thanksgiving, whatever form it takes this crazy year, Carol. I'm thankful today for your friendship and for our shared love for horses and dressage. It's been a real pleasure and a boon.

A. XOXOXOX

HAPPY HALLOWEEN, CAROL!

I hope you'll be doing something just a little spooky tonight. I'll be curled up with a mug of tea and the Werewolf of London, thanks to you. Have fun!

Thanks for the great picture, Carol! That does put me in the spirit.

Huh, I'm a big Halloween and horror movie freak, but I'm not sure that I've ever seen Werewolf of London (1935). I found it on YouTube, so I'll watch it on Halloween night. It'll be fun!

You have a wonderful All Hallows' Eve, Carol!

Oh, that sounds lovely, Carol! Firstly, I'm so glad you could get out to the barn to be around Maxx and the other horses! Secondly, a festive Fall display and a show just makes it all that much better! I think with the pandemic and the political environment, holiday spirit seems at a premium. It makes me feel better just to know your were feeling a bit of it. Yeah, I hope you do get out there again pretty soon. If you go sometime during the holidays again, when everything is decorated, take a couple of pictures for me, okay? I'd love to see them. I miss horses/stables terribly!  Thanks for writing such a fun and uplifting note. Stay well. And Happy almost Halloween.
