Activity slowly increasing

My activity level is slowly increasing. I had hoped to ride yesterday, but decided I wasn't healed enough. Instead, I spent an hour and a half walking. Hopefully, in the next couple of days, I'll get to ride.

In the meantime, I found this picture my husband took of my horse at Chicken Chase in April 2006. This is a top view of Tanna saddled and waiting to be bridled for a look at the trails the day before competition. Daniel is standing on top of our horse trailer looking down.

And here are a couple of pictures of Tanna just a little while later as I was lunging him prior to mounting. These actions are why I don't want to ride this horse until I'm certain I can handle him without being distracted by pain.

He really is a good horse, but he will take advantage if given the opportunity. After his little tantrum, I lunged him for several minutes. Then mounted and had a pleasant 45 minute ride with no more issues from him.
