I rode a horse yesterday and found out just how much muscle I have lost due to the months of anemia. I couldn’t get my butt up in the saddle even with a step up. How embarrassing. I have never been graceful getting on a horse but I can do it. Dnag. I guess I need to work on my quad and glute muscles. I had to stand on a barrel to get my leg over the horse. I felt like such a horse noob!!!
And oh my word!!! My legs are sore today!!! The handsome horse I was riding is part Percheron and he definitely showed his draft side. Definitely!!! Lots of sore muscles today for me but I am happy with that, it means that I have muscles there starting to remember they can do things.
So now I have a new goal…. Get my legs back so I can ride. I have an area I can concentrate on and work hard at. Somehow when my goals are around riding horses, they get done. A horse is my motivation and it works.
I am excited about this. 🙂
