On a less exciting note, I ended up in the hospital this afternoon thanks to my horse listening to me. Lol! Had a lesson today, and my trainer/boss, had me jump an oxer that I still firmly believe Demon and I weren't quite ready to jump. Regardless if we were ready or not, we did it, and I made a number of mistakes coming up to the fence, which ultimately resulted in Demon jumping it diagonally, throwing me off balance (I actually fully expected him to ignore my leg and refuse... oops!), knocking a standard down, spooking the heck out of himself and me on the ground. I am so proud of him for being a good boy and jumping it when I set him up all wrong, but unfortunately I landed on my head (always wear a helmet) then the right side of my rib cage, and somehow manage to mess up my right leg. I'm still not sure how that one happened. I got back on and hacked him back home, but by the time I got back to the barn I was in immense pain, and decided it was in my best interest to head to a hospital. Thankfully, nothing is broken and I do not have a concussion, but ended up with quite a few bruised ribs and a very very bruised shin. I am bed ridden for quite a few days, and my ribs are not expected to make a full recovery for 4-6 weeks. I'm not quite sure I can go that long without riding though, so we'll see what happens. Lol!
Anyway, thanks for reading. Just had a desire to share my rollercoaster day, as I'm having a hard time falling asleep. I hope no one else made any trips to the hospital today!
