That's kind of how it was for me... was! I'm 50, still is! Lol
Went riding on the Red river yesterday, about 4 hrs, had a ball, except when I broke my finger
did that right out of the bad, just a freak accident. Had the lead, loose in my hand, horse looked right, and it pulled the lead just right where it pulled my pinkie right and broke it right at the middle knuckle. Of course, I didn't pack up and go home, pulled the finger out, saddled up, rode 4 hrs, went home, found my crazy ass mare had kicked something a has about a 2" gash on her lower leg, the injured leg. CLeansed, doctored and dressed that. I swear she is going to be the death of me!
My boss's horse that I am riding, is probably a good 17 HH!!! So I brought my step stool
I guess I had the stool just on the edge of the plowed field, that when I stood up there, put my foot in the stirrup, and the step stool went sideways, landed ass first in the dirt. I had to laugh, didn't hurt myself, luckily, I didn't put my hurt hand down. I get to see the orthopedic surgeon tomorrow at 1. Have a trial ride this weekend, and the weekend of the 29th!! I CAN'T MISS THEM!~!~
