Well I can't say exactly I ride with a "disability". I do have 5 metal plates in my back from a fusion, but I have been suffering from an old injury, rearing it's ugly head earlier this year, a severly pulled groin muscle. I first did this about 18 years ago, and then reinjured it about 12 years ago. Then things seemed to be pretty good until early this past spring when I reinjured it yet again! I have been very careful all summer, riding some but not a tremendous lot to let it heal. I did jump one time late summer a little but today I finally jumped again. After about 6 fences could feel a slight pulling so I stopped at that point, but I THINK it is healed. Just hope it stays that way! It becomes harder and harder to get back into jumping now that I am over 50, so time off from it is not helpful!
I'm so happy for you. I can't wait until I can pop over a little jump. You must be beyond excited.
Don't worry about not being disabled enough. You have metal parts in your body, so you qualify as NQR. Also, I think you will be a real inspiration to other riders like you have been to me. Keep posting with your progress
I could feel my groin beginning to "pull" a little after about 6 jumps so called it quits. Haven't jumped since Sunday as weatehr is awful but hopefully can get on a regular program again. Since I am a small time pro, it's hard to remain on the ground allowing things to heal!
