Another Fall.....


Well, it was about time I fell and actually hurt myself. Sadly this fall was not on video. Well we were jumping (tiny cross). I caught him in the mouth from landed to early. He didn't like this. Bang, he bucks. I fly over his head. Land on mine and now no riding for about a week unless I feel up to it and apperantly I've got cuncussion and a screwed up tail bone! Goodie!

Arr, I hate falls. I always seem to get concussions and stuffed-up tailbones. I hate the tailbone injury though cause it hurts to sit cause you have like a huge bruise on it. Just keep the riding light and all shall be good.

There is one principle that should never be abandoned, namely, that the rider must first learn to control himself before he can control his horse. This is the basic, most important principle to be preserved in equitation - Alois Podhajsky

I hate that, and when you land (after you are left behind) you are in such a weak position to sit out a buck. Heals as down as possible next time

I hope you are okay soon though.

Bad thing about Australia = hard ground.

I'm sorry to be so blunt, but every time you put up a new post it seems to involve a fall or bodily injury. Maybe you should ditch jumping for awhile and take some flat lessons to get yourself in a more secure position to ride safely? I get the whole "young and invinceable thing", but it's not how things work and you don't want to go through the rest of your life with some chronic back injury, or worse. Please slow down and go back to basics.

Dont you hate it when you get hurt!! I would be carefull about getting on too early, it could make the injury worse. One time I fell off my horse and seperated my shoulder, no more than 2 weeks later I got back on and now its f!cked up! The bone is above where it should be and sticks out a bit. If you touch it you can feel all 3 sides (top, front and bottom). It doesnt hurt, and I have full movment but its just gross!

Hey guys, head feels better. Tail bone keeps reminding me to not sit down, lay down, or walk.

I didn't get up to feed Chinga this morning so mum did it for me. Apperantly he was running around mental and bucking (just playing).

Barry G - I was wearing my helmet other wise I would have lost my horse and I would never be able to ride a horse again (parents rules).

Yess, I did manage to fall off and land on the hardest bit of ground I could find. I was also wearing my good quality (highly reccomended for jumping) helmet and safty vest.
