Model Horse Rally Is A Hit !!!!!!!!!!!

September 5 and 6, 2008 was the Sandia Creek Ranch Pony Club Riding Center's (SCRPCRC) Model Horse Rally. It was a blast. A Model Horse Rally is where you take a toy horse and pretend it is really and you are at a show, or rally. It taught young and older the do's and dont's about rallies. SCRPCRC held the rally. SCRPCRC is where Audrey and I take once a month group riding lessons and do Pony Club! We love it there. Audrey and I were both team leaders. I was on crutches. Long Story short; my jeans got caught in my bike's chain and I crashed. This was a couple days ago. The chain cut through my heel. It left a huge, deep, greasy, bloody, gash. I cleaned it really good. It was very swollen but has healed a lot. I can't walk on it... Therefore, I was a team leader on crutches. To make it even better, the kids on my team were an 9 year old, a 10 year old, and a 6 year old. They behaved......... So I couldn't put my riding pants over my foot. Remember, it was just like a real rally, except everything was miniature and fake. It was really a great learning experience. I couldn't do most of the stuff, but I did the jumping course!! Over 7 jumps!! In the "Broken Division" they called it because they was a little girl that sprained her ankle but could walk on it. I also had to go up and down hills and sleep in a tent which was awesome! I was gimpy, crippled, disabled, broken, lame, and some other names. My dad cooked breakfast for us, ALL OF US! Kids and adults!! He got there at 4 am to cook us Mess of Potatoes which was DELICIOUS!! The kids all helped me and were great. I had a great time, except when my arms got sore!! ha-ha!! My team was called the Red Cross Racing Horses. Our equipment matched; white with a red cross and everything. Hopefully you get it! Red Cross= me being "crippled". My team was awesome for little kids. Out of three teams in our division we got 2nd place!!!! That was with me not being able to do everything too!! Audrey's team was 13 and 14 year olds. They called themselves "Z Team". The got first place in their division. School is tomorrow so I better get to sleep! Also, in October we are going to another goat show!! Yeah!! Thanks for coming by!!!
