Stall Rest and a Jumping Doc

My ACL reconstruction surgery is over.  All went well and now I'm healing and rehabbing. 

I won't be on or near horses for a while.  All I'm doing is dreaming and planning.  Along, those lines, I updated the BIG Calendar, so have a look at some of the fantastic activities you can do with your horse in the Twin Tiers in 2013.  And there will be much more to come.

So I'm on stall rest at the moment, but I thought you might be interested in a video of my orthopedic surgeon, Lucien Rouse.  He's a knee specialist, but he's not bad on his hunter horse, either!  

It's handy to have a surgeon who is also an equestrian.  His rehab advice will be right on target ("Sitting trot: yes.  Standing in your stirrups in a canter: No.  Do what I tell you.  Don't make me use a twisted wire on you.")

Here his round:
