So you guys may have noticed that I haven't been posting much about my day to day riding.  That's because I haven't been able to ride for the past week.  I pulled my left quad extremely badly last week while playing a softball game to the point where getting in and out of the car was difficult.  I've been icing and keeping it easy for a while, but it is still not good.  The issue now is my IT band and the muscles around my left hip and left knee are overcompensating...

At least I can be thankful it's me that is injured instead of Koda.

Words from the now wised up - ALWAYS warm-up your entire body before doing any sports, whether you are equine or human.


  1. Yikes!!! So sorry!

    Hope you heal fast!!

  2. Ugh, I just pulled a muscle in my groin not warming up for my workout and I thought I was going to die "riding" today. Just get someone to hose you down, rub a little liniment in, and shove some bute down your throat. Should work, right? :P

  3. That's what I thought!
    I used my liniment, actually, but I like to use a foam roller on my leg. I haven't tried riding yet, walking 30 minutes is still uncomfortable...

  4. Sorry you're injured! I hope you make a full recovery before your upcoming holiday.
