An athlete with a midfoot sprain will have sustained a twisting or pivoting injury to his or her foot. They will develop immediate pain and later swelling in the central region of their foot. The swelling often can lead to bruising on either the top or bottom or the foot. How much swelling and subsequent bruising occurs is related to how severe the injury is. The athlete will also complain of pain with bearing weight. In milder injuries they will be able to walk without too much pain, but the higher demands on the foot in athletics will be painful. On the other end of the spectrum, in more severe injuries, the injured athlete may not be able to bear any weight even to walk.

Nearly fifty years later I owned an Equestrian centre in Colchester. Originally Briton’s capitol, (prior to London,) before Boudicca in her chariot burnt it down. Also Uk’s oldest recorded town and once proud possessor of the second largest Roman circus in the world. My speciality was training horses for carriage driving. This followed a career of driving and building racing cars, so I realised that my life had equipped me with all the skills to make that 10 year old’s dream become real – using 21st century technology I would build a replica racing chariot. It needed to be light and flexible, so I would make the base structure in 16 gauge round steel tube. This is where the internet came into its own. Using a variety of images and making an inspired guess as to the horse sizes, I drew up the design.

Lives that changed instantly. Instead of being able to sleep in until 7am, we woke at 5 to be the out at the barn at 6 so that we could take care of Lenny before work. In 60 minutes we would clean the stall, exercise and groom the horse on days that my husband had to work. On his days off we would sleep in till 6, to excited to stay home. I got the chore of getting the horse out of the stall and working with him, the stall cleaning and grooming went to my other half. I didn’t ride, but I did lose a lot of weight, all that walking!

Often the clothing range for fuller figure ladies is limited. Search the internet for companies specialising in riding wear in all sizes. They are more likely to have a larger range of equestrian wear available.

One accessory you definitely want to include in your room is an area rug. In a horse themed room area rugs can be as simple or as complicated as the decorator wants. An area rug that depicts a horse rearing and shaking its head may be ideal for a child who likes freedom and is outgoing. Besides representing the personality of the child, an area rug provides certain comfort and protective qualities as well. Area rugs help to keep away chills and are much softer for children to play on than bare floors. In addition to this they protect your floors from damage and work as a noise buffer.

Finding the right trainer can take some time. Don’t hesitate to keep looking if you don’t find someone that clicks for you. Learning dressage as with anything is best taught by someone you enjoy being with, someone that can make it fun and interesting and someone you feel you trust.

An old wives tale is that if a turquoise stone changes its color it is a warning you will die soon. If you are wearing a turquoise and it changes color it is more likely that the stone is reacting to the sweat in your skin, cosmetic or cleaning products or that it has been bleached by too much exposure to ultraviolet light. Many turquoise stones are waxed to prevent them from being vulnerable to chemical changes in their color.
