They gave me the okay to go to the barn and watch my sister ride and help with small things like grooming. And it's a good thing, too.
She actually got kicked in the head last night. She has been exercising a green (and apparently starting to become a problem for the owners, as they didn't mention when she took the job), four year-old warmblood for the owners, as they are at the olympics. Well, this horse bucked her off yesterday, and he's been bucking all week (and the owner only made this clear last night that he's been doing this), so she decided to take him in the round pen the free lunge and burn some energy off.
He got down to roll, which is okay, but he was right beside the wall and we didn't want him to get cast. So she tried so encourage him back to his feet with the rope, but... when he got up, he kicked out. Hit her on the forehead.
Luckily, she's alright. It's safe to assume a mild concussion, and she's decided to take the rest of the month off from riding. We're just going to have to figure out something for Freddy; normally I would take over and ride him the full five days a week we have him for, but I guess we're both out for now.
