 Re: Back in the saddle 13 wks

Woo Hoo! So glad you were able to go for your first ride! My Aunt was told 6 months before she was ‘allowed’ to ride her horse when she had a small fracture in her ankle last year.

As for flexibility, I still have some limitations in range of motion, that make going down stairs a little awkward, and I can only half kneel (with my toes tucked under and not worth the top of my foot against the floor). I am taking a yoga class on Saturdays, and I just modify the activity to something I can manage. For me the loss of flexibility affected my flutter kick when swimming. For most of last year I swam arms only front crawl, but this summer I really worked at rebuilding my endurance and completed my first 1k in under 30min last week. Not fast by most standards, but a big improvement for me.

Keep up the good work and soon you’ll be back to cantering across the fields!

4/18/16 Tripped - Sprained left ankle, broke right - displaced oblique fib fx, dislocated tibiotalar joint, fx med. malleolus
4/25 ORIF 1 plate, 8 screws, ligament repair
6/6 boot, 50%WB
6/20 FWB, PT
Driving at the 3 month mark, continuing improvement
