This week has been rather interesting. Just as I thought I might be able to start riding again I had a coughing fit and pulled a whole new set of muscles in my side. I literally couldn’t stand upright. The muscles are healing now but the cough is still here and I am still not on the ponies.
It sounds a bit pathetic to let a cough stop me riding but if I had a coughing fit on Galahad he would throw a fit of his own and I would have no chance of stopping him. The trouble is that I can see the ponies gaining weight and that is definitely a bad thing.
I have decided to give in to the inevitable and send them to my riding instructor for a few weeks. They were due to go soon anyway for their annual back and teeth checks and this way they will at least be getting some exercise. We have put a lot of work into keeping them trim and I don’t want it all to go to waste!
I will also be taking a bit of a break from blogging – just until I am back in the saddle. Surely it won’t be that long now!
