    Just clarifying.

    I usually ride a 16.1hh, solid TB. It was very different jumping a small pony.

    Thank you! We are not sure what he is now... I contacted the stud book people and they think he is an Australian Pony.

    Hahaha. Sounds like an excellent plan!

    Just a quick update today:
    Sat:
    Went to the Mt Gravatt Show jumping with Maddie and Chinga. Had a great day, it was fun to be in that sort of competition environment. Got sun burnt but oh well. Had horse riding later that afternoon, brought home $5. In the morning I also got myself a new camera :) It is a Canon SX30is and I love it.

    Sunday:
    Fathers day! We were planning to go on the boat, but the wind was to high, so those plans got cancelled. Also because I was sick.

    Today:
    Had the day off school due to being sick. When ever I got up I felt dizzy and had to sit down again. I started to feel better in the afternoon, so I took Pumpkin out for a groom and in the end decided to wash him. He is so clean!!! But he stepped on my toe... So now it is bruised and quite sore. Put his summer rug on him before I put him out into the paddock to protect him from the dirt. And of course, he rolled. Not 2 times as normal but 5. Good on him :/

    That's all for now, updates soon

    1. Shiny legs!
    2. Wet pony
    3. Rolling...

    Thursday, 8th September

    Yesterday was a momentous day...

    I fractured my wrist coming of the pony :(

    We were cantering around a corner and he had a little bit of a hesitant back off at something, but I kicked him on. He then ducked sideways, started bucking and genius me fell off! I landed on my right wrist, and it was confirmed this morning as a buckle fracture right below my joint. If it had been on the joint, I would have had bad arthritis for the remainder of my days.. so a positive came out of this.

    The doctor, bless his heart, said I cloud keep riding if I wanted! But if it got injured and snapped fully across the bone, I would need surgery to re-align it. So - no riding for 5 weeks... fun :/

    Pumpkin is good otherwise, I got some photos while I riding, before and after.

    That's it for now :)

    1. He looks odd...
    2. Canter canter canter
    3. The time of impact
    4. Remounting like a pro
    5. Riding home
    6. All bandaged up
    7. Looking pretty and innocent afterwards

    Monday, 12th September

    We went camping over the weekend to Neurum Creek music festival. It was good fun to go and get a break from the usual routine.

    By the end of these 5 weeks I think I will be crazy.. I haven't ridden for a week and I can honestly say I greatly miss being in the saddle.

    School is almost done, only 4 more days until the 3rd term for the year ends.

    Pumpkin is good, I think he is enjoying doing no work at all.

    That's it!
