On Easter Day, Michele, my daughter, and I went to the barn.
Michele wanted to ride and I thought I could see how it felt to try and get back on my horse.
After my back problems and the surgeries on my belly during this winter, I haven't been on my horse since last fall.
It was a beautiful warm day in the 70's.
We groomed both Preacher and Echo. They had, of course, rolled in the mud so that took us awhile.
Then we saddled up Echo and I got on in the arena.
I had no trouble getting on and just walked him around. No bouncing and no posting. Just a nice steady walk.
It felt fine and I wasn't overly sore that night.
Michele rode and trotted him for awhile.
It was a happy day!
Now that spring is finally here and the weather is getting warmer I hope to get to the barn a lot more often and work up to riding more again.
Even if it's just walking around, being on his back is good for my head!!
