I've notified Wings' owner that I'll be ending my lease soon and it makes me very sad. It was an awesome lease situation with a very nice horse/owner/stable. It has been a decade since I last rode regularly and I'm fairly certain it'll be at least that long if not longer before I ever ride regularly again. A part of me realizes this could quite possibly be the end of my riding story, too. As someone whose childhood revolved around horses I find this sort of surreal. The last time I stopped riding it was always with the promise I'd get back to it as soon as I could. There is no such agreement with myself this time around.
I haven't yet tried running. I am hoping to get out for a 1-2 mile test run this evening. I am getting a little better every day. If I had to guess it would probably be another week before I am 100% better. I am getting a little concerned I may have some residual back issues for much longer, but guess I'll cross that bridge when it comes.
