I rode my new horse for a few hours yesterday and then we went to a racking horse show with our new friends and it was great. They took 10 horses and placed 1st and 2nd in every class they showed in. Then today we went over there again and I rode my horse for 2 hours. He is so awesome. The guy I bought him from is our new friend and he trains them and shows them for a living. He is working with me and this horse for a couple weeks and then he is going to finish out my TN walking horse. We are gonna start showing them as soon as we get the transmission put in my hubby's big truck. Horses are the best therapy for me even if it was one that broke my ribs, LOL. I found a picture of me the other day when I was about 2 years old on this big ole quarter horse. It was cute. I remember the first time I was thrown from one I was 6 years old and my daddy made me get right back on it. I was scared then but I've always gotten right back on them every since. Tuesday makes three weeks since my ribs were broken and I am already riding again. I did get rid of that horse though cause it was crazy. He was also supposed to be my son's horse and the man we bought him from said he was broke for anyone to ride. My son has been riding less than a year and isn't very experienced yet. I am so glad I was on that horse instead of him. Needless to say the guy came and got him and gave us our money back. I am still thinking of suing him cause he actually had run an ad in the paper that he was safe for children to ride. I found out he had only had the horse for 3 weeks!!!! I've lost almost a month of pay and I'll have the ER visit and xrays to pay for cause I don't have insurance. I am very tempted to and I am not sue happy. Anyway I just wanted to share that I have had a couple of really good days and Lord knows that I needed them after the few weeks of horrible pain I've had. My back is still bothering me and my ribs too off and on but I am feeling much better mentally. Thanks for listening.
