    I'm glad you guys had fun though! And that you both got out okay. It must have been wonderful
    I just can't believe he ran full-on into a bush! That is soooo unlike him. And it wasn't like he was trying to get away from me. He just walked off like I was already mounted and because I had the reins still in my hand, it pulled his head to the left and he turned to the left...into the bush...and just kept on going. He's such a weirdo.

    Sounds like a nice ride , mostly. It can be rough when the lead horse is in the way of others going up or down hill. I had a friend, on one of my horses, that did that & it caused my stallion ( that I was riding) to pull something in his back leg-he was laid up for a few months. But, still better than riding alone nowadays. Hope you got good pics!

    When we were on the rocks (where Aires jumped/bucked), I asked her to move so my freight train could come down. She laughed...and didn't move.

    And I got some decent pics. They're in my pic thread. My friend got some pics of me. I'm going to ask her to email them to me tonight and I'll hopefully have them up tomorrow.

    Okay, so I have news about my shoulder.

    My rotator cuff isn't torn. MRI just showed TONS of inflammation in my muscles and tendons. Also, my AC joint has serious edema to the point that the two bones are rubbing on each other, which is where the majority of the pain is coming from. They did a cortisone shot into my AC joint and it felt better afterward...but it didn't last long. I got to work at 2pm and by 5pm, my shoulder was starting to hurt like hell again (shot was at 10am). They also prescribed prescription-strength naproxen (Aleve) to help with all the inflammation and they're going to work with my insurance to get me into physical therapy (since my stupid insurance doesn't cover PT unless it's attached to surgery). If the PT doesn't help my AC joint or I'm still in serious pain because of it, they'll have to go in arthroscopically and create space in my joint so the bones aren't rubbing on each other any more. So, that's where I stand. I'm waiting on the orthopedist's office to call me to tell me whether or not I can start PT and when (apparently they're going to set it all up for me, which will be nice).

    Hope they can get you into the PT w/out too many problems. Have you used your new saddlebags yet?

    Well at least nothing is torn and you aren't in the dark about what's going on. Let's just hope that your insurance gets their act together and helps to pay for that PT!

    :)

    Cacowgirl, I used them on Friday. LOVED them! It took some getting used to them because I'm not used to anything in front of me, but they didn't interfere with riding or anything and they didn't bounce (which was nice, since Aires has never carried saddlebags before). They held a ton of stuff (two sandwich containers, two large apples, an entire box of fruit snacks [not the box, but all its contents], the two water bottles, my warmer gloves...and there was room for a bit more!) O.o The only "bad" thing was that when I took Aires' saddle off and had the saddle and saddlebags laying on the ground, the horses smelled the apples in the bags and Tam (my friend's horse) managed to open the bag they were in. He actually grabbed the zipper tab (it has a pull cord thingy on it) and pull the zipper open! He did it so daintily that we were just about dying laughing. And Aires had his nose right down there like "Come on. Open it!"

    As for my shoulder...the cortisone shot lasted for all of half a day and now it hurts more (and starts hurting sooner) than it did before. :-/

    I can't wait to get my prescription filled. Hopefully it'll help. I'm taking just regular OTC Aleve right now (220mg) and it doesn't help one bit (I took four of them before work and really all they did was make me extremely light-headed to the point where I thought I was going to pass out).

    Ahhh! Please don't pass out! Sheesh, I sing high praises for ONE aleve.. 4?! I think that would knock me out too.

    I hope it does help! Being in pain isn't fun at all... and makes riding not fun :/
