Welcome Back

The Hip Talk Discussion Forum was hacked a few weeks back. It has taken me a long time to fix it. The only backup I could use was way back to April 2020. All members and posts up to that date are available. Anything newer has been lost. I am sorry, but that has been the only way to get things up and running again.

HR passed the cowgirl's " working vacation"! 🐴
« on: July 11, 2013, 01:12:10 AM »
Hi Hippies!
Just wanted to brag on how well my hip is holding out! I usually go on an extensive horse training "vacation" ( ha, ha! More work than vacation, but a labor of love  for sure!) every 2 years. It is near Helena,MT ( I live near Portland, OR) so it also involves a lot of driving ( truck, camper, two-horse trailer). I had to skip in 2010, because of my HR surgery.  2013 was my first year back to it since my hip resurfacing, and I couldn't be happier with the outcome!
The trip involves a LOT of prep and packing. Then, round trip, I spend about 30 + hours driving that big rig ( yes, I drive alone). The program in MT  involves taking two of your own horses and receiving instruction on how to ride and train them better. It requires saddle time equal to about 6 hours a day ( and not just walking down a trail, rowdy and fast reining/cow horse type riding!) stall cleaning, feeding, grooming, and a lot of hiking up steep terraine. I was a little nervous to try the new hip on this adventure. It is a real test! I am happy to say it passed with flying colors!!
All my old friends there were happy to see the new me, comfortable and active again.
This new hip has changed my life back to normal!
Stay positive! Lu

Very encouraging report...thanks for sharing!

In addition to your destination activities, it's hard to beat a good road trip as well.

Congratulations and keep up the good work!

Well done - that's quite a prolonged work-out for your resurfaced hip.

I can imagine how happy you must have felt.

Thanks for mentioning where you are located. I visited a friend in Portland, Oregon, a few years ago (whilst on holiday in Vancouver, BC, Canada) and really enjoyed the feel of the place.

Thanks for all the encouragement and feedback! Sometimes seems like the HRs that are doing well don't post as often as the others. Wanted to let people visiting this site know that most of the time they are a wonderful thing!   Lu
