|My tack cleaning nest in my living room.|
|One set done. Many to go.|
That all changed when I got on and realized I had no strength. I tried to put my left leg on him as we walked away from the mounting block and could barely apply pressure. Okay then. This ride was just going to be about using balance to stay on.
I managed some trot that wasn't atrocious. Lots of walk breaks where I rested my hands on the pommel and just let the horse carry me around. Then tried a canter. One circle each direction. I was a wet noodle in the saddle. No strength in my body to be of any help to the horse.
Total saddle time was about 35 minutes. It felt much longer.
That ride did me in. I was noodle-y for the rest of the day.
