I lunged lily today, and got her to go over some trotting poles etc.
Lunged her for about 10 - 15 minutes, then decided to take her back to her stable. I jumped on her bareback and was just going to ride her up there.
All was fine, she took about 10 steps, completely normal and calm then suddenly exploded into a bucking fit...for no reason... wth? At first I couldnt see alot and was a little dizzy from just being kicked in the head.. I was crying, because my leg hurt so much but my first though was to get up and grab lily before she tripped herself up on the lunge line.. I landed in front of her, her front hoof kicked me in the side of the head (i did have a hat on) and her back off kicked me in the leg. I landed on my back, I have grazes all over my back, and my leg is REALLY swollen and bruised. She wasnt in any pain, she didnt have her ears back, and I had ridden her bareback up from the field and even trotted along the road and into the yard, without a problem. Anywayss..pictures from free schooling her a few days ago, anddd my swollen leg & cut up back.
Oh and in the first picture, wth is she doing? It looked like she was trotting, but when I watched her, her back legs didnt look like they were in time with her back legs...she is a saddlebred x and apparently has "extra gaits" according to her owner, is this some sort of gait? Or was she just being odd? Lol
