Last summer, about 10 days before a horse show, I took a nasty fall off Miles. He slammed on the brakes right before a white coop and I went over the jump without him; neither Trainer nor I saw it coming. My hip hurt so badly I went to the ER to get it x-rayed, convinced I’d broken something. Luckily I didn’t, but it wasn’t a quick recovery for me and ever since I’ve been terrified of the coop. Of course at the horse show immediately following this incident, there was a brown coop in the ring that Miles jumped several times with no problem.
It’s been a while since I did a quiz on here, especially one beyond just the equestrian side of my life. So here I am, jumping on the bandwagon of filler posts while I collect my thoughts about yesterdays lessons.
Ya’ll, losing weight is really hard. It’s been a difficult, extremely slow process for me and lately I’ve been so busy it’s been tough to make eating healthy and working out a priority. And just when I felt like my goal of losing 25 lbs this year was completely and totally insane… I weighed myself.
Last week I have a bevy of first world problems that seemed to touch all important aspects of my life. Luckily, nothing is really, seriously wrong and everyone will be fine and things will get worked out. But let me tell you, it was a frustrating and exasperating week for me. Since nobody really wants to hear me complain, I’ll give you the reader’s digest version before moving on to better things.
Holy cow, it’s halfway through September! I don’t know about ya’ll, but this summer has just flown by for me. I can’t believe it, but the All American Quarter Horse Congress is just two weeks away. As the world’s largest single-breed horse show, it’s the perfect venue for a blogger meet-up, and I know a few locals have already expressed interest. So let’s plan a get together!
