oh and I didn't know you could buy horses on there! I go on there once in awhile. But not enough to really know everything about the site.

I actually teared up when reading your post, because of how strong your bond is... he knew you were hurt so he was there to help you. They are truly special animals!

I fractured my ankle a few years back but not from riding, I was tarzan jumping (jumping to catch a cord and land in the water) I hesitated and thought I would jump the second try my fingers slipped and I fell in shallow water. My ankle swelled up quickly, I knew I had to have broken it because I couldn't walk on it but I think I was in such shock I didn't cry at first, it felt hot and painful. 16 hours in the emergency room I found out I fractured my shin into my ankle and required a cast up to my butt! I went back a week later to have it removed so they could be certain they wouldn't have to put pins in my ankle but they said I was healing fast... faster then anyone they'd ever seen, so I was lucky and got 3 months of cast wearing :P

I would love to share the same bond you and your horse have when I get mine...
Get well soon! Sending positive thoughts your way!

Hmm. I might be a little concerned about the tripping, that his feet may not be trimmed right.

But anyway, I just had to say that I had a similar experience that really improved the relationship with my horse too.

I was doing something similarly foolish, letting my horse gallop up a trail that went up a hill. I was on one of my Arabians that had tons of GO. So I let him run up this hill and I swerve to miss a tree branch. The saddle rolls right over onto the horse's side with me! (Side note, I believe the breast collar saved my life because it kept the saddle from rolling completely under the horse).

So I ride a few strides on his side like a circus monkey and realize that there is no way in heck that I am getting back upright onto the horse's back, and that if I stay hanging there I might pull him over.

So I let go and drop off. We were running mind you! So I fell off and was in incredible pain for a few minutes, and was trying to figure out if anything was broken.

I always thought this particular horse would just run home and leave me for dead, even though I loved him very, very much, I didn't know if the feeling was mutual. He actually came back and stood by me until I was able to get to my feet.

That turned out to be one of the best experiences I've had riding because I wasn't hurt, just really bruised and after that I felt like our relationship was so much better. Like he actually cared for me a little bit, lol!

So that's my story. And I am a big believer in breast collars now. My saddle was probably too loose and it didn't fit that horse very well, but given the right circumstances, I think almost any saddle can slip.

But my Arab didn't run home and leave me for dead after all. He was a really wonderful, fun horse. I kept him until he died at age 24 of colic.

Aww I wish me and Sheena had a bond like that. Sometimes I wonder if she cares even a little.

He loves you! What a wonderful horse!

Much less dramatic but it reminds me of when I got a horrible sudden stomach flu/cramps/nausea once on the trail and my horse was walking so gingerly as I was moaning and being pathetic he looked like he was tip toeing. As soon as we got home and I got off he was normal but he was trying so hard to be extra careful because I was hurting!
