Angry I broke my ankle a few days ago . . .

and i'm so annoyed !!

I have a 5 year old who i turned away when he was 3 to mature, and since ive started trying to bring him back into work it's been disaster after disaster !! For example -

the arena (which isn't top-notch anyway) at the farm i keep my horses at was in a bad condition, so rather than sorting it out - the farmer parked all his machinery in there which ruined all the surface and made ruts everywhere !
(it's taken us two years of us constantly asking them to sort it out until they finally did it - and even then it was my boyfriend (at the time) who sorted it out for us, not the farm owner!!)

then bradley wouldn't load when i was supposed to take him away for a weeks training, so i got a guy out to help us load him & all was fine

so we kept loading him up to make sure he was super comfortable with it so that when we started taking him places we didn't have problems

then where i took him to hire a menage, the people that owned it were really rude and i got really wound up with them so i was annoyed when i was riding, then after my 2 lessons bradley didn't load (probably because he knew i was wound up) and they tried to take over which made him worse, then when they just left me alone and i calmed down he walked straight on with me (and a carrot lol)

and i finally started to school him properly and all the fields around the farm have been cut which we can ride around, and i broke my bloody ankle when i was out the other night !! (and no i wasn't drunk) so by the time i'll be okay to ride again the fields will have been re-seeded and the menage will probably be flooded !

sorry about my rant, i'm just really upset =[

PLUS . . . i might need an operation =[

Take it easy on yourself. Leave the horse out for a bit, let him get some fresh air, and take some time to care for yourself. He isn't going anywhere.

Good Luck with surgery hon.

Get well soon!

I am sorry to hear that. =( It will all work out in the end, I can assure you that. You just have to chill out and take some time off for yourself.
