Bad Jumping Fall


Apperantly I don't land on my feet these days. Chinga and I were jumping a small three jump grid.

Jump 1 - Approached amazingly and cleared it brilliantly.

Then in between jump 1 and 2 it all went wrong. I fell after the landing and about two strides before jump 2. My foot got caught in the stirrup and it wasn't coming out.

Jump 2- I was still being dragged and he jumped the jump and I smashed my head on the jump my face hitting it first. Then he kept going, **** stirrup was NOT coming out.

Jump 3- He leaped this and managed to smash me in the chest with his shod hoof.

Then he dragged me before my stirrup came out and then he cantered a bit spun and cantered towards me. I thought he was going to trample me. But he stopped directly in front of me.

I lay in the grass for about 10 minutes thinking I'd broken my neck. When I stood up every bone in my body hurt. But I still got back on walked him around twice then got off.

Sore as all hell, Want to give up jumping. Can't because of my addiction. Can't because of Chinga's addiction. Feel like crying. Want a hug from Chinga. Wish I hadn't jumped him. Wondering how I screwed up the grid.

So sorry to hear this!!!! Was someone watching you? I know your parents make sure you have someone with you. That is unusual for a horse not to stop as soon as you fall off but he was probably upset that you were dragging from his side. You def need to get different stirrups, the breakway kind Stainless Steel Peacock Irons Pair -

Rest, recover and then decide what you want to do about jumping. Glad you are okay.

I did have my dad with me. He left for a bit, and he did say no jumping. But I didn't hear him (apperantly dad doesn't understand when I'm trotting I can't hear him from the other end of the paddock). I'll talk to my parents about the stirrups, I'm pretty sure we are heading to the tack shop in one week time. I was having a look at my leg and I actullay managed to make my leg bleed when I got dragged, I measured it and it is 20cm above the stirrup iorn. So work that one out. Please don't say I was stupid for riding without someone there. I managed to get confused with the rule and so did my dad. The rule is no riding unless someone is out in the paddock and we thought I was no riding unless someone is around.

I am meant to be having a lesson on him tommorow, and then ride in a Gymkarna on Sunday. I will see how I feel and then decide if I am going in the morning.

Oh my goodness gracious, I am glad you are ok. Did you get your Dad to take you to the Dr for any xray's , or just a general examination?

**HUGS** I know falls are scarey and tought to get through mentally, especially when they are bad falls.

Keep your chin up!

Oh dear! Your lucky you didn't get hurt much worse. I thought you were going to tell us you had at the very least broken your nose or some other bone. Your just very lucky Glad your planning on getting back on though

Oh my gosh that sounds awful :[ glad you're okay! Did you go to the doctors to get x-rays or anything? Even if you don't feel that bad you should always go and get your head examined after you have some sort of trauma. I need to get safety stirrups too, I've been meaning to. I think I might go get some tomorrow lol.

Maddie! That sounds HORRIBLE! *hugs*
Sounds like a VERY scary fall. Glade you're okay. Sounds like a bit of a freak accident, just hang in there, I'm sure you and Chinga will be back where you were before in a little bit! :) It's okay to be nervous!
I agree, go for a medical examination. You may not feel bad but you could've hurt yourself. :)
