Still Waiting........

So I haven't been up since friday to see my boy. i usually give him the weekend off.  I'll probably head up to the barn tomorrow to check up on him and see how he's doing. I hope he's walking better at least.
Anyway today my boyfriend says to me how a part of me ( muscle that I use when riding) looks different this of course is due to the fact that I am not riding, I haven't been for about a month now since my boy has been off.
This honestly frustrates me since I like how fit I was lol and I just miss riding. I really don't want the time to come when Apollo is feeling better and I can sit on his back again and start huffing and puffing because I haven't been ridng lol. My horse is not THAT hard to ride but he does need somewhat of an experienced rider and some days he just needs a lot of leg, depends.
And this also means that our jumping training has to be put on a hold and when we start back into it, we will basically have to start from the very basics. :'( tear.
 We were doing so great lately and this just had to happen. lol oh well hopefully he'll remember something and we won't have to start back from square one.
This was us back in October 2010, since then we have improved greatly but I don't have any videos since then because my boyfriend hasn't been up and wasn't able to record anything.
Anyway I miss this....
This was 2 feet and we were still doing 2 feet just so we can practice getting straighter towards and after the jump, get a nicer take off spot and for him to get his correct lead. Can't wait to start doing 4 feet with him, which shouldn't be a problem with him since he's such a tall boy! :-D   
Come on everyone, help me get my horse better so I can start jumping again lol. Let's all pray LOL. ;-) Just wish him a speedy recovery ASAP before I start going crazy.
