Re: Training when you can't train (injured newbie)?
I like what Mary said.
If Rainy was injured and you could not ride him, you would want to wait untill he was completely healed before trying to ride him again. I would suggest to treat yourself with the same love and compassion as you would for Rainy.
My thirteen year old daughter started riding lessons two weeks ago. Being at the stables and around horses again has brought many forgotten memories. Last night the stable held a mini horse clinic on how to harness and show them. I got to ride and drive with my daughter in a cart.
