    Question did something happen?

    Hi Piaffing,
    I'm having a bit of trouble following your thoughts in some recent posts, which are quite different than most in your post history and your websites. I sincerely hope that everything is going well for you, but am concerned. Hope you haven't had a major health setback that compromises your ability to post here, or to spend quality time in the saddle.

    Default aphasia

    On another forum where Piaffing posts, another member explained that Piaffing had suffered a stroke. Piaffing is making an extraordinary effort to communicate which will no doubt help her on her road to recovery. Keep trying girl!

    Thanks for the update, b. That's actually the suspicion I had, but didn't want to assume. (My background is in Speech-Language Pathology.)

    Piaffing, I know how difficult and frustrating it can be when the words won't come, or come out right, and I want to let you know that in this forum of ALL places, we're here for you every step of the way. Keep posting; repetition is the key to helping re-train those neural pathways.

    Try to spend as much time with your horse as possible-- they're great therapy bin so many ways, even just grooming and using regular barn commands like "over," "stand," and "foot/hoof", and "Zoey". (Those horse words and phrases are also great to work on in rehab-- things you say all the time are often the easiest to get back). Best of all, horses aren't judgemental; it's all good as long as there's treats, attention, and scritches involved.

    Hang in there, and keep us updated as you feel up to it!
