I'm new to this blog and I don't know if anyone can help but: I own and operate an indoor, heated training arena with 8 box stalls. I had to have a back fusion: L2, 3, 4, 5, & S1. The surgeon states that if I'm a real good girl I can go back to training in12 to 18 months. What I'd like to know is: IF I can not go back to training - what other options do I have for the training facility. We are 25 miles from Brainerd, MN. I have some thoughts and possibilities but would like to have input from others. Thank you for your thoughts.
