Got another notice yesterday or so - a prayer request for a cowboy in the hospital, healing from a rodeo accident. Like Courtney King Dye, Graham was riding an "experienced, well trained horse" that stumbled, and went down.
I am praying for Courtney's complete recovery, and for Graham as well. I remember reading about Mikey taking a splat, and changing her habits, too.
I've gotten lax again about my helmet usage. It's hot, I sweat, and Romeo is 98% of the time the best of a saint in the saddle. Ransom hasn't seen me without a helmet in quite some time, no matter the saddle. But I read these stories, and if the experts can splat, so can I.
Strap One On!
