The perils of horse riding at 75

Posted in Uncategorized at 6:02 pm by aleksan

You never know when your ride on a horse will be the last one. I got back on Chockles yesterday after initially falling badly on an attempt to mount. I was encouraged to try again, and with much help from Sarah managed, and we did some fun exercises in the Yard. But today, I am aching, shaking and can’t walk without an elbow to hang on to. I shall be 75 in December, and falls have much more impact than they did a few years back. My riding days are not yet over, but I shall have to be much more careful now….
