This happened to me 0n Wednesday. I schooled my disobedient horse for over an hour in a lesson....and he was being difficult and contrary....yet, the act of controlling a 1200-pound animal was the least of my challenges that day. Come to find out, simply walking through my front yard in my boots and breeches (which I LIVE IN on a regular basis) was just too much for my very complex and advanced sense of balance and coordination. I, essentially, walked through the grass, stepped on a rock, and rolled my left ankle so badly I could almost see the bottom of my foot! I can strut my stuff all day long in precarious 6-inch heels, yet my riding boots seem to be my downfall. FAIL!!!
