Comment : Getting back in the saddle
Posted by Sarah_M on Sun 11:00pm 3 October 2004
I had my leg broken in surgery and an old injury corrected on August 11th. I'm now eagerly waiting for it to heal so I can get back to horseback riding as well. My surgeon told me that because it is not a "real" weight bearing activity like running or skiing, I can return to horseback riding very quickly after I resume full weight bearing.
I was wondering if this is just his idea, and a common one, that horseback riding isn't an athletic activity. (I ride a 6 yr old quarter horse and was working with her on beginning jumping when I had my surgery)
Has your Dr. said anything to you like this? I really want to get back to the barn, but I don't want to damage my leg.
