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!
