I feel like such a dork!

I was riding my lease horse tonight. I set up the barrels for the first time since I've had her. She hasn't been ridden constantly the past few years so I have just been doing flat work with her to tone her up and get her stamina up.

Well, she's doing so great so I trotted her through the pattern. And man can she turn! She can wrap a barrel and tie a pretty bow on top of it!

I decided to lope her through the pattern, and she did very well. She's giving me plenty of space going around the barrel. So the next time I decided to open her up and see what she can do. She's being extremely ratey so I'm having to push her into her pocket and then hold her off the barrel at the same time.

She turns the 1st and 2nd barrel great. She also runs to the left which I'm not all that used to. Well somehow my foot came out of the stirrup on my way to the 3rd barrel, I found my stirrup just as we hit our pocket, and...I rolled my ankle, while riding. LMAO. How is that even possible!?!

No serious damage. Just a dull ache that has decreased over the past few hours. Well... I was coming down the steps while trying to talk to my mom and I totally missed the last step (hey, it was dark) and I hit the ground with the ankle I rolled and it couldn't support me and I fell completely on my hands and knees. LoL. I have had problems with my left wrist for almost 5 years and now that is aching too. I-yi-yi.

To top it off, my mom couldn't stop laughing at me.

What a night.

I pulled a dork move last week at SeaWorld.. I was walking across the bleachers after watching the Shamu show thing and tried to misstep some little kids blanket..right at the time the little A**hole snatched his blanket so my foot came down where he had pulled his fleece blanket and I slipped on it, couldn't catch myself and completely ATE IT..in front of hundreds of people..and the little snot was laughing at me..along with MANY other people.. by the time I could breathe again from laughing so hard I was crying..lol I feel your dork pain..

Omgsh!!! I jacked my knee up one time stopping my mare!! So bad I seriously wanted to cry!! It was all swollen and nasty. I have bad knees as it is, but gosh that was painful...and there was nothing special about this stop either!!! She didnt hop or anything, just tucked her but and stopped like always. I know how you feel!!! My mom rolled her ankle riding one time too, not sure how this kinda stuff happens!!!
