It's my birthday today and i went horse riding this evening (as i do every fortnight)
Unfortunately tonight my asthma decided to make itself known, oops. We were trotting round a lot and i could feel my breathing going weird and i felt a bit dizzy. I had to turn the horse in to the centre, Heather (the instructor) was behind me at that point asked was i ok so as i shook my head she came round to front to see what was up. I had the inhaler then we started doing canter one at a time so she left me to the end and asked did i want to do it. i was ok by then cos i'd stopped when i knew i could sort it easily rather than pushing past it and quite possibly making things far worse. I was ok to carry on the lesson but felt not 100% for the rest of the time and still now my breathing feels a bit twitchy .
Ho hum, it's another group of people who know me who *didn't* know i was asthmatic - they do now *sigh*
Ah well - better than falling off the horse!!!!
Didn't stop me enjoying my mum's home-made Death By Chocolate cake when i got home though mmmm
