Spent the weekend home with my wonderful dad, get to see Gambit tomorrow though! :)

You are never better than anyone. Every rider has skills they need to improve. The only one you must compare yourself with, is you.

I went on a great ride yesterday, I rode Tanoka,
I typed out the whole thing yesterday but left it
and it messed up my whole novel so I'll go to the
exciting part, everything was awesome until this.

We had dismounted cuz a fallen tree was in our way and got
back up 5 minutes later. We were hearing the zipliners and
kept going. when we got there we were kind to the guy and
didn't mean any harm, but he got mad when he saw us. He
literally RAN over the bridge there was and spooked our horses.
Then we got to a creek, if you know Tanoka, she don't like
getting her feet wet and tries to find a way besides jumping.
There was no way she was finding another way so she jumped
12 feet and I lost my balance. I was lunged forward than back
onto her right side. I held on for 2 strides than fell in to a pile
of branches. Tanoka kept running while I sat there and cried
for a bit. My dad caught her and we walked for a while than
got back on. Then there was a tree and I was smart enough to
dismount that time. I walked her to our driveway and rode
the rest of the way. I ended with a bruise on my cheek and
a couple nicks on my hand, but I'm AOK! Oh, I didn't even
tell you what that guide was like. When he got to my dad he was
all "This is private property" "Call me" "You shouldn't be here"
and my dad was like "My wells on this property and I have an
easement on this property and we're going to check our well cuz our
waters tasting funny." We weren't checking our pump.
So, that happened.
And never do Zip San Juan if you want a cranky guide

Oh, that was a story, lildonkey.

As to me, I have had a bit sore throat today. Got some more shifts at work which is good since I hadn't shifts in that week. I also found a dress for my good friend's upcoming wedding.

Se pääsky toi kesän eteiseen, se antoi rauhan sydämeen,
ja lehahti sitten siivilleen, ja päästi pois kahleet.
Ja se loistaa, minne ikinä meen, se mukana kulkee

wow lildonkey, that sounds quite similar to what happened to me at the gymkhana yesterday. Well not really, but anyways. I'll start with the show though in my novel lol.

So at the show Cheyenne was being amazing for me! She was even putting her head down for some of the time!! She was awesome!! Again, we had some tough competition, but out of four riders we got one second, four thirds, and three fourths. It wasn't too bad. :) Her owner, Debbie, said that she thought it was our best show! my second one was pretty good too, but this one, she said, was best because we were SO in control.

The gymkhana was...okay. We got two firsts, two seconds and a 'no time'. the first one was awesome! We galloped through the poles and back in no time and won that one. The second one we did awesome too. We won first... (this is where my novel begins) although after we past the timerline I was too slow putting my legs forward to stop Cheyenne and we headed right for the gate. She turned at last second to avoid crashing into it. I'm glad that we didn't crash into it, but I ended up doing a flip over her shoulder and I was introduced to the metal fence (aka I flew off Cheyenne and hit the fence). I remember hearing someone scream (I now realize that it was me) and then I stood up right away and someone reached through the fence and grabbed my shoulders incase my knees buckled. I immediately started whispering "I'm okay, I think I'm okay." in a shaky voice. Debbie, (Cheyenne's owner and the nurse) and a barn friend ran into the arena. My friend (Chantelle) grabbed Cheyenne who was standing a few feet away, and Debbie came over to me and told me to take deep breaths and all that and I kept telling her that I was okay (I realize now that I was rambling on about it, which told her that I was obviously in shock which I TOTALLY was.) which I sorta was, sorta not. She slowly brought me over to my water bottle and made me drink some water and take deep breaths. then she brought me out of the arena and Chantelle brought Cheyenne out too. I heard the announcer say my time, which at that moment I couldn't care less about, and then they said "Glad to see you're okay" and that was nice of them :)

Anyways, long story short, my back hurt really bad and I saw when I got home that I have a long bruise on it from the bar of the fence. I also have a bruise on my knee and my neck is really stiff.

After I got hurt, I wasn't scared to get back on Cheyenne again. I was just nervous to get into the arena. Cheyenne's an amazing horse and I trust her, but she can get pretty hot. Debbie walked me into the arena so that she wouldn't get all crazy going in. the lucky thing is that Cheyenne is both a show horse and a gaming horse so I just pretended that it was a show and I walked in nicely. I passed the timer line and walked a stride or two and then brought her into a trot. As I had predicted, she thought she was going to gallop around the pole (this was pole bending) so she started getting antsy when we got to the other pole and started doing some small bucks and rears. She turned in a circle and I got a 'no time' for that, but I finnished the pattern at a trot and then brought her back out. It wasn't too bad. The last two races were okay. I walked and trotted them too and I cantered them a little bit. I got second in both. (as you can probably guess I was only in the 'novice' division)

So I'm a little sore today from that fall but I did have fun. Even though I didn't really wanna know how hard the fence was.

THE END!!

Oh Cowgirl Up

yeah it was pretty 'whoa' lol Maybe I should've put my legs forward and said 'whoa' before I went flying forward lol It was my fault that I fell off though so I'm kinda mad at myself. But whatever. I'll just remember for next time. I think I'm now known as 'the girl who always gets hurt at gymkhanas' now because on my last gymkhana I had fainted. This gymkhana I was introduced to a big metal fence lol
