Starting over with Joe....again
'Well it's been 11 days since my fall off Joe, I'm still a little sore but nothing I can't work through. This week hasn't been that great, lots of stress and worry and yesterday I hadn't stopped all day and was tired, I think my state of mind had alot to do with the lousy ride. yesterday was the first time up on Joey since my fall and it didn't go so well. I walked him out of the barn and almost had a panic attack and I wasn't even on him yet. Kelly rode him around for awhile and he was fine but by the time I was ready to get on him the mosquito's where out in full force. I got up first try, he stood nice for me. I sat on him for a while trying to breath, then I noticed the hook on my boot was stuck on the stirrup and I paniced ($100.00 boots are going in the garbage). Any way we got through that and the trainer walked me around a bit, and I was done. He was doing alot of fussing because of the mosquito's and it made me more nervous. I'm not sure I'll ever be able to ride him again. We are going to start all over again and I'll keep trying.
