I've been sick for over two weeks today. It was discovered on Friday that I have pneumonia.
Obviously, my parents aren't letting me ride right now. But it's driving me crazy! I just got my new saddle pad to make it all worse; I'm itching to use it. As of today Allegra hasn't been touched in a week. She had three months off before I started riding her and I jumped on her and she was fine. But the past few months she got used to seeing me nearly every day, despite the fact that I don't actually own her. Man, I don't even lease her! I'm lucky in that matter.
I know I'll have to ride soon, considering that we have a show next Sunday. You have no idea how excited I am that our show today didn't happen, meaning I would have missed possibly the only show I can do this year.
Sorry, I just needed somewhere to vent. My instructor, her owner, said that she was doing fine...Which is good. I don't even know why I miss her that much, considering it's just been a week. But I do. She hates to be left alone, without being ridden or just taken down to the barn, for more than a day or two. A week...Ack. I'm hoping to ride Tuesday or Wednesday, but you can never say. I guess I would kind of like to know I wouldn't pass out when I was on her...
