    She Is Still a Good Shot ....pic

    Last March my wife had a horrible accident. Her horse kicked her square in the face pulverizing her nose. The Dr pushed it back together and sewed it back up. She can't get any type of repair surgery done for at least a year because that is how long it will take for the swelling to go down. Her prognosis is good. We have seen 4 different specialist, one in Arizona, one in Cleveland, and 2 at the U of P. One of her first questions to the Dr was "When will I be able to ride again?"

    Anyway yesterday was the first time she shot her bow. She drew it back and then let off. She said she needed to extend her release because it wasn't the right length. I said to her "You should not have to move it, it should be fine. You were shooting great last year." Then she reminded me that her nose was not the same. I felt stupid not realizing that sooner. Well needless to say her shooting has not changed one bit.

    15 yards first round.

    She actually started riding again in June. (When the doc said it was ok) I was not thrilled, but it makes her happy and I was not going to stand in her way.

    Good shooting!
    Sounds like she is "back in the saddle again".
    That must have been a nightmare of a day for you getting that phone call.
    I like to ride but horses do make me nervous. I have been involved in two "rodeos" and was inadvertently bitten once.
