conniehurts - September 16

Mary, The first time I rode my horse I rode for about 5 minutes and my hubby had to practically carry me in the cabin! Sometimes my side walker comes out and we get the horse ready to ride and I cant even mount! I too have severe exhaustion. I sleep probably 18 hours a day or more when I can. I cannot wear a helmet because of the problems in my neck which is why I have someone with the lead line to control him just in case so I can concentrate on staying in the saddle! You would be surprised at what you can do on horse back. We live about 30 miles out of town and just sitting in the truck to go to town I am too exhausted to go into the stores with my hubby, but riding is so different. I cant explain it to you but if there is a way you could go to a stable and just try riding for a few minutes on a quiet horse with help you would not believe how much better you feel even when it exhausts you! I never thought to be able to ride a horse again until 2 yrs ago. My exhaustion is so bad at times that I cant even hold a book or knitting needles sigh. I do hope that you can find a way to give it a try. I must send my hubby off work now and lay back down. I don't have what it takes to sit for long this morning but wanted to answer you. Gentle hugs.. Peace Connie

Mary I meant to tell you that I moved from your area 12 yrs ago. Lived in Smyrna for 8 yrs then Mableton then Acworth! small world isn't it? If you do talk to a stable about riding explain your illness and how it will affect your ability to ride. They may let you ride for free or at a reduced rate! You will feel so much better I promise you! I wish we could talk!! There is no place here to put an email or phone number :-(
