I fractured my 5th metatarsal on my right foot (my pinky toe bone, but further up). Luckily I didn't need a plaster or boot, so I am only in a bandage. But I can't ride for at least 6 weeks, which totally sucks, because my plans to get Pumpkin underway and fit have to be put on hold again. I can't even walk yet, so no ground work for a week :( I just came back from Dubbo for 10 days, so I was keen to come home and start riding. My sister and a few friends should be able to come around and start things up though.
School starts again in a week. Final year. Woo hoo!! Hoping it won't get in the way too much with riding, but it is all about time management. Which I suck at, but I'll work on it. Haha.
Anyway, there will probably just be photos of Pumpkin eating grass for the 6 weeks or getting dressed up. Highly unexciting. Sorry about that.
There is one principle that should never be abandoned, namely, that the rider must first learn to control himself before he can control his horse. This is the basic, most important principle to be preserved in equitation - Alois Podhajsky
