Since I started the group, I may as well write the first post. I'm deaf, have RSDS, PTSD, RSIs in my wrists, disabling arthritis in my knees, I'm overweight, have asthma, and I'm starting back riding as soon as they can squeeze me in. I ride English, enjoy jumping, hope to compete in jumping and in dressage eventually. I'm going back because riding, despite the crappy knees, is an activity that I can do because it's pretty non-impact for me, and most importantly, it makes me happy in a way that other hobbies can't. I'll be able to write more once I have actually started, but this is a little bit of me, starting something at a point in my life that could be better, and that I'm actively working to make better.
