Sorry to hear about your fall... :(

I'm 100% positive she did NOT want you off! She was just scared (and kinda lost her mind a little). It can happen with any of us and with any horse (you were just not very lucky to hold on). So I'd just take it easy like nothing happen.

I'm with kitten, she probably didn't mean to hurt you. Its easy to get our feelings hurt when a horse we love does something that hurts us physically. It happens to everyone who is around horses long enough. I'm glad you were able to get back on. Its as much for your confidence as it is for the horse. (((hugs))) and cookies for JR. :)

Glad you (and your horse) are OK and not hurt. As you say, she may have tripped or lost her balance a bit..but on the lighter side, it's better to go down that way than have her fall and roll over on you.

On the sixth day, God created the Quarter Horse.
On the seventh day, he Painted the good ones.

Awww, thanks everyone. I'm glad that it was not worse, and that both of us are okay.

Vida, yes exactly! I was thinking in my head..."Jube, why'd you have to do that to me?? I take such good care of you and I love you so much! And I know you love me!" Grr... Yeah, I didn't think she meant to hurt me though. Because after when she calmed down she was looking down at me to make sure I was okay.

Haha, thanks everybody about the cookies. You are all so incredibly kind and uplifting.

*Eats Cookies* Mmm! These are awesome! Must be homemade. Lol.
