Today I weighed myself when I got up, just like I usually do.  The scale said...122.2!!!!!!!!!!!!  I HAVE to be at my goal weight when I weigh in tomorrow, don't you think?  I did a two hour hike and kickboxing and stuck to a strict 1200 caloric diet so I BETTER get my glitter tomorrow.  Wink  I also had my first riding lesson since my horse show and I was really afraid I would've forgotten everything.  But, lol, it was "just like riding a bike."  I got back on and had no problem.  Here's what was eye opening:  I saw my first horse buck someone.  I realize this will happen and does happen periodically but still.  It was very scary to see for the first time.  We were taking turns cantering (a jog) while the rest of us had our horses along the rail just walking.  We do this all the time in our lessons.  One of the more experienced riders in the barn was on my instructor's horse.  Both of them ride her all the time.  All the sudden it was as if a fire was lit under the horse and you saw her go from a slow "jog" to a full sprint.  Her ears pinned back and she started increasing speed.  My instructor kept shouting, "WHOA" but it was as if she wasn't there.  Seeing my instructor spring across the area meant trouble.  My instructor remained extremely calm, almost eerily calm, as she kept shouting for her to pull back on the reins and that the saddles was loosening from the horse going to a full sprint.  All of us just stopped and stayed along the rail to try and keep out of the way because once anything is going that fast accidents occur.  Next thing I knew, the girls horse was so out of control she was about to run into my horse.  It was literally like watching a car put on its brakes and almost bounce backwards from the momentum of going so fast and then trying to stop.  I think the horse was inches from crashing into us.  The rider was thrown off and tangled into 2 ropes that had sectioned off the arena.  I was shaking so badly after it happened and it didn't even happen to me!  Both the instructor and the rider were completely calm although I could tell both were shaking.  I realize the odds are, the more I ride, the more likely this will happen to me, but it still scares me.  The rider got right back on (which I thought was unbelievable...and she didn't even cry!) and the instructor was giving her commands to get her horse back into "check" and know who was boss!  Very impressive and brave.  I know everyone says, if you get thrown you've got to get back on or you never will but I don't know if I'll be able to do it...
