So, any good thoughts would be appreciated.
In the mean time, I am shooting a few weddings and doing some other design work. I would love to paint some more saddle pads, too, so if you know of anyone looking for a cool gift or for a way to stand out at their next event, send them my way! :) Kenny and I are also doing a lot of work on the house. I have learned how to use a tile saw and helped Kenny pour concrete to build new front steps on the house, which we then cemented repurposed tile onto. It looks great!
I am almost fully recovered from my fall a week and a half ago. My right elbow is still bothering me and I think when I get a new job/health insurance, I will get it x-rayed if it is still hurting. When I was young I broke my left elbow falling off a horse and it was the same type of pain, very minimal unless I bend my arm *just right*, then quite a lot of pain. I didn't get my arm looked at for two weeks the first time I broke my elbow and it did have a fracture in it. I am not too worried about my elbow but I am going to be careful with it. It would suck to have a cast right now because it's REALLY hot, I want to ride, and it's my right arm and I am right handed! My leg is totally fine now, just a really cool bruise is all that's left!
Lucy has been doing wonderfully. We've had some nice dressage schools. Lauren noticed that the new bit I got for her was rubbing the sides of her mouth just slightly, so I bought some bit guards and she went even better in that bit now that her pony lips are protected :) I am doing some temp work at the local Dover store for their tent sale tomorrow through Saturday, so on Friday I plan on having a jump school after "work" and then Saturday I will bathe her. Sunday is the event at Groton House, and we'd love to see/meet anyone local. My dressage is at 12:42, jumping is at 1:46, and XC is at 1:56.
Here are some cute photos of Lucy making friends with a bunny yesterday after our ride:
