hey y’all, how’s it going? i see you’re all doing your 2Pointober baselines and I’m jealous. I want to participate, damnit! (i can’t believe i just said that!) sadly i’m still not riding, although i am recovering.
it’ll be two weeks tomorrow since i sprained it. i should not be harumphing–i think i’m improving quite quickly. i’m walking, and the swelling is dramatically reduced. oh, and i ditched that damn boot. it hurt so much more than walking barefoot or even in a shoe. i called the nurse after 24 hours, explained the pain they had inflicted on me, and she told me toss it. (after she chuckled to herself, “you’re my little horse girl, right?”)
two weeks feels like forever. and no riding has really taken a toll on my typically
sunny grumpy disposition. now i’m grumpier than normal. maybe viva carlos will take pity on me and i’ll win her 1000th post giveaway? i’m seriously in the market for some composite/wide footbed stirrups now that i’m ankle gimpy. i hear they’re pretty terrific. do any of you guys have experience with royal riders, compositi, projump, composite reflex, etc., etc, etc.? i’m also really curious about the i’d love to know your thoughts! (also, have any of you guys tried the free jump stirrup? really curious about them!)
tangentially, susan miller says october is going to be a doozy, with two eclipses. i can already feel the change in the air.
