Shocking Hell, I’m broke!!
What a disaster. I was riding at Bath yesterday when my first mount Rose Aurora decided to be a diva, as I got led on to the track, she reared over and landed on my leg. Ouchh!!
I was in a lot of pain and felt very sick, the ambulance team were there immediately, I then started to be a bit of a diva myself, the gas and air soon put a stop to that, loved it!!
The racecourse doctor examined my leg and told me it was just badly bruised and that I would be fine to ride tomorrow at Salisbury, phew!
So I was thinking to myself, get a grip Turner!! Which I did, for about 3 minuets, I then stared crying again, so I call Mummy! I love my mummy. She told me to get myself down the hospital.
After 2 paracetamol I felt confident enough to tell everyone it was just bruising, shortly after the doctor came to tell me my ankle was broken, so I started crying, again!!
I have now pulled myself together, it could have been so much worse, just my ankle, no head or spin injury. It’s simply part of our job, you have to cherish the highs and brush off the lows.
I’ve had an amazing season and at least now I have time to celebrate it.
Operation today, fingers crossed. I’ll keep you all updated.
