Facebook has been taking all my time these days and it is keeping me from updating this blog!!
We had such a beautiful day today that Kelly and I decided to go to the barn and ride our horse. Kelly did most of the riding and I decided to just get on and do a 'quick ride". Well, a quick ride is what it was all right!! When I got close to the jump I asked Truman to trot. He trotted for a few strides and the closer he got to the jump the faster he decided to go. He quickly moved into a full canter just before the first jump and since I knew I couldn't slow him down at that point I just held on for dear life. A few strides later we were "flying" over the second jump and I was still hanging on for dear life. A few MORE strides later he started making his turn to keep from running into the fence. Well he went right at his full canter speed and I went "RIGHT OFF!"
Luckily, nothing is broken, but I was sore instantly which was not a good sign. My "butt" hurts the worst - if anything else hurts it is over-powered by the butt pain. I have taken the strongest medicine we have in the house and yet the slightest movement is still excruciating. I knew I was too old to take up horseback riding!! I fought the horse and the horse won!! (which is usual!!)
