In a couple months Im going to get a new knee. Im almost 66 and on anticoagulant for life, thankyou a fib. We have horses, but with age my riding has diminished to nice weather riding around our place for an hour on my calm trusty horse. If I ever fall off, it would probably b my fault as my horse if very dependable. Both heart and ortho docs say I can continue riding, " just dont fall off". All my horsey friends would never ever consider giving up riding. Im a retired nurse, so I look at things from too many perspectives and self doubt myself way too much.
Im telling you all this to solicit objective opinions on whether one should be wise and give up riding OR make quality of life and enjoyment supercede safety and continue riding??? It's a coin toss for me and I would love input from other anticoagulant takers😉
I added pic of my boy Brumby, he takes good care of me.
