Don’t panic – all of the animals are fine!
About a month ago, I had my typical butt-kicking lesson with Ashley. After I had time to clean up, I noticed my left tricept hurt. It wasn’t a shooting or blinding pain, just enough to let me know I had done something my body didn’t like.
A few weeks went by and my arm didn’t seem to heal much – certain movements would almost send me through the roof. I decided with summer vacation finally here, and another lesson on the books for this weekend, it was time to get it checked out.
Some how, some way I ripped a tendon connecting the muscle to my shoulder. Not too much I can do for it at this point, except rest it. Oops – not something I’d been doing a lot of, nor with my lesson approaching, planned to do.
When I explained the situation to Ashley, we double teamed Kobi yesterday. She rode first to try and figure out why he didn’t want to move forward (was his saddle pinching him or was he just lazy) & then I hopped up to finish him off with spurs. We came to the conclusion he’s just lazy & doesn’t understand (yet) that when I’m off work – he has to go to work!
Today is a new day, though, and I promise to let my arm rest so it will heal – as soon as I’m done with my ride!
