    Thanks, everyone! I know everyone's situation is different but it helps to hear others' stories.
  3. Fractured wrist surgery - how long till you were back in the saddle?

    I fell on black ice last week and fractured my wrist. Had surgery today. Didn't get a chance to ask my doc when I could ride again. Sounds like it will be six weeks in a removable cast.

    Interesting point. When I think of 'derby horse', I think of the International Derbies, not the lower height derbies. It would never occur to me to describe a 3' horse as a 'derby horse'.

    As Ponyclub said, I like the idea of thinking in steps. A clinician boiled it down to three simple steps.

    1. Slow down.
    2. Move the horse's shoulders to the outside.
    3. Apply the aids.

    I loved watching her.

    Yes, she sits up. But she doesn't sit DOWN. What I mean is that she brings her upper body to the vertical, but her tushie doesn't hit the saddle.
