    Bareback Fall

    Hey,

    Well I've got good news and bad news. The good news,
    I was riding Chinga bareback today just playing with the usual walk and trot and I decided I was ready for a bareback canter. So I asked for the canter and we got it. We cantered a few times and on the last go he was cantering (Bad news) and I slipped off him side ways and fell. Jalah said that his foot was millimeters away from my head. I remember seing his foot go straight past my head. He stopped when I hit the ground though.

    Maddie.

    Well it's a good thing that his foot missed your head! And that your okay! Of course I think if your not falling sometimes then you aren't a good rider (just my opinion). Once I fell (not bareback) and fractured my spine in my lower back but I didn't go to the doctor until 3 months later because I was afraid he would tell me I would have to stop riding for awhile (which he did ). The worst part of that fall was that it ripped my pants!! It was so embrassing!

    Thanks guys, I had a really sore head at school today (partly because I ran into the door AGAIN) but it feels better this afternoon. I rode this afternoon, with a saddle! I swear that horse is a mare.

    I took him bareback riding for a cool down, seems I've lost my nerve to canter bareback.

    I've had my fair share of bareback falls. Like I was riding my friend's mare, and she is rather attached to her paddock buddy, this warmblood gelding, and she went off when she saw him. I was on the lunge, hands on my head, practicing trotting and next thing you know she was pig-rooting and bucking. My sister got the whole thing on video, its quite funny actually, because I sit out about 3 pig-roots and a buck then come off. I do the whole proper "roll into a ball" procedure. I'll have to put it on Youtube and post it on here.

    I love watching videos of yourself riding because I'm always like "Oh gosh, what am I doing with my hands?" "Why aren't my heels down?" "Eww I hate that jacket, I'm getting a new one."
