Well I guess I am kinda running behind because I said the contest was goon be drawn on Friday and all the sudden its Monday! I even missed Sunday Stills yesterday cause I wasnt home. I kinda been busy riding everyday and cleaning the barn at Jardis. I am going to a cutting clinic in Ponoka with Jardi and Vic Almond this coming weekend, so we thought we should get our ponies rode lots this week before the clinic. I am taking both Gypsy and Razz and it should be fun, I cant wait!
I been having trouble with Gypsy moving her bum. She moves her shoulders very easily, but its hard for me to get her to move behind, so I put her in a three piece snaffle (which she seems to really like) and I got like two steps! I was pretty excited.
But then on Sunday I was loping and I never tightened my cinch before loping, even though that little voice in my head said I should, and I could feel my saddle slipping to the inside, so I leaned to the outside and slid right off and hit the wall pretty hard. I scared Charlene pretty good and we decided to go to the hospital even though I wasn't feeling too bad, so he looked at me and wanted me to come back this morning for x-rays on my sacro/lumbar region. I stayed over at Jardis overnight and she drove me back to the hospital and we got the x-rays done and had to wait to see the doctor again to read them, and it looks like I will be fine, but just strained the muscles/ tendons in my shoulder and hip area. I am supposed to rest and then move carefully, so if I feel okay I may go ride tomorrow and see how that goes. Prolly will be a short ride though.
Anyhow, my contest winners are Lisa from Laughing Orca Ranch, and 5 Starr Farms! If you will email me your address, I will get the soap on its way. Congrats all winners, and it sounds like Family is the best gift of all!
