Our First Fall

Hope everyone's barrel racing is going great. Now that my leg injury has healed I am back to riding daily. yay!

Coming around the 3rd barrel today, he actually lost his footing and his front end went completely down and he had to pick himself back up. I actually just watched a video on this and how to remain calm and stay centered. It happened so fast thats all I could do. LOL. I did exactly that and slowly, but surely he got up and trotted it out.

I patted him and we had a good rest of our ride.

Horses change lives. They give our young people confidence and self esteem. They provide peace and tranquility to troubled souls- they give us hope!

Wow, I am glad nothing dangerous happened! I know barrel falls can be pretty bad. That is one of my only fears when it comes to riding - the horse will fall. After that I am no really afraid of anything.
