Horseback Riding after Hip Replacement

I’ve had Labrador retrievers my entire childhood and adult life. We were always careful to check for hip dysplasia in our puppies. Imagine my surprise when I learned that I had this hip malady myself!

I’m a freelance writer specializing in equestrian travel, so having my mobility limited was challenging. Recently, I underwent total hip replacement surgery of my left hip. I’m enjoying physical therapy and deep water aerobics, but I miss horseback riding. I’m cleared to get back in the saddle again!

If I were selected to join Vista Verde for a winter vacation, I’d take my riding partner, who’s horse just died, and we’d enjoy your horsemanship clinics, sleigh rides, cooking and wine tasting classes. What a trip!
