Fall Update


Three days until the Pony Cousins and Equicuz's
head out for the big trip!

Copperpony and I are ready to go!
Thanks to all of you for the nice comments
when I took my fall.
The lip has healed up nicely.
The stitches finally came out tonight,
and I am happy with the way it looks.
It will be tender for awhile.
My bruise is fading where I landed on my cell phone.
It is still pretty sore!
I am so thankful I didn't get hurt worse.
Doc took us out for a ride on Saturday, and it went well.
I have to say, my confidence has dropped a few notches!
I know my Trusty Dusty will not let anything happen.
I know what mistakes I made.
He is a good boy, and we make a great team.
He will help build my confidence back up.
I just need to get in the saddle,
and enjoy the ride!!!

You will be back up in the saddle this week for the Stampede!
I am so happy to hear you got your stitches out and now you are ready to rock and roll! Can't wait to see you!

Being with the Cousins will help your confidence. I have to pause often now and remind myself to relax and breathe.

You are much braver than I am, my friend. It helps that you have all your pony-loving family and friends around to help build you back up again and give you that much needed support, too.

You're going to have so much fun this coming week! I can't wait to read and see all about it when you return!

It's awesome that you're ready to climb back up in the saddle - be brave and you'll be just fine, Cowgirl :)

The biggest hurdle is getting back on! You've accomplished that so go have a great time!

Glad all is healing well!

I'm glad your stitches finally fell out. I know they were driving you nuts. Are you all packed? At least you won't have such an owie for the stampede/rodeo!

Mary Olson said...

Have a wonderful time at the Stampede! You'll get your confidence back and then some because you learn as you go.

Such good news that you are healing up already -- fast healing is a good sign. You must be a generally healthy person. Once you get back to riding it will be (almost) like it never happened!!
