Here is a perfect day. I am nervous as usual, before a game. First time with our new pro, Jose fresh from Argentina – a 4 goal player. Turns out, he never played in the arena before! Considering, he is very very good. Well, he did most of the work, it was a very fast game for me, our team mate Tim was very respectable. Our competition was STIFF. We held our own the first 2 chukkers, and then they stopped making mistakes.
I did fall off Canela – I was riding into the wall, and got confused as to which way to turn. She didn’t know what I wanted, because I didn’t know what to do, and we went in different directions – lost my balance, and slid off. Just a skinned elbow and bruised ego – needed a leg back up (she is so tall for me). Back into the game. I promised myself that I would not come off the next time.
