haha you might be on to something there speedy :L but the last time i rode with my period (i normally dont cause i get pain so crippling ive been admitted to hopital) my legs did. not. move. haha but bubbles was being a sh*thead and i lost a stirrup when she decided that she was distancing without my hand at it and took off one (and a half) strides too early i got run over she effed off to the gate and i got up swearing my mouth off covered in mud on one side and already had a bruise forming on my kidney after 5 mins. i rode again with more determination and she was like uh ohhh im in trouble. i found out a few weeks later the reason i was in so much pain was cause i had broken my ribs in the fall. funny thing is i didnt feel the pain till the next day when i rode my friends pony (im soooo thankful her mum only let me walk).
But i was suprised i stuck for as long as i did lol, maybe it was cause of my period :L
