[RC] Roger - Carol Stiles

I heard that Roger had a punctured lung and several broken ribs from the people at Fransico's. Either way it would be nice if we all sent him get well cards. I know that cheered me up when I was in ICU. I also attempted Tevis this year but my horse hit  a rock right before Lyon's ridge and even though he seemed to recover and we were cleared to go, at Red Star he was off a little again so we quit there. I figure better there than later. Still, I had all day, so decided to take him home and go back and volunteer with my crew at Foresthill the rest of the day, at one of the road crossings, which was great fun. I hope more riders  decide to do as I did, next year. It's fun and that way the day is not a total loss because you get to help your friends who are still riding. I saw Roger as he crossed the road in Forsthill and he looked great. I was really sorry to hear about his accident and wish him a speedy recovery. Roger had just retired from the Placer County School District in Nov. and was so excited about having more time to ride now and doing Tevis. My condolences go out also to the lady from Arizona who lost her horse at Robie park. What a brave woman to go through that and still try to ride Tevis on loaned horse. She's a stronger woman than I am for doing that.
