Oh wow, I completely forgot I'd posted about this on here!

Well, all my training went well up until the first proper ride-out (Currie Riding of the Marches) at the start of May. Six hours in the saddle is a lot, but I managed to make it to the end somehow!

However, come the midweek ride-out during the Penicuik Festival week, I managed to fall off and damage my shoulder! A trip to the hospital revealed a large piece of bone chipped off the top of the humerus, necessitating an operation to put it back in place....

....but that had to wait until AFTER I had performed my Penicuik Hunter duties during the week!

So yeah, basically I rode around the town on two separate occasions with a broken shoulder, carrying an eight-foot-tall flagpole with my good arm and controlling Monarch with my bad! We're total bad-asses here in Scotland!

Anyway, I have a ton of pics, so if anyone's interested, I'll put them up!

Ask and ye shall receive...!!

This first lot are from the midweek ride.

Me and the 2013 Lass


The Penicuik Cross-country team: Joanne (Musselburgh Honest Lass 2012), Craig (marshal), Adele (2011 Lass), Sally (2013 Lass), me, Lynsey (2012 Lass), James (2012 Hunter) and Gav (2004 Hunter and marshal)


The principle party (with Craig) - guess how many of us fell off?!


Mounted up:


At the halfway point in Howgate, with Monarch stopping for a quick snack!


With Craig:


Coming back from the field after my tumble!


Getting some treatment before going to hospital!


Installation and parade pics to follow later...

No, they wouldn't let me do that on the installation - something to do with insurance. Anyway, I still rode with the broken shoulder!!

More pics to follow. Installation ceremony next...
