I was on my gelding bareback and wanted to lope/canter so bad! I finally got the courage pu and off we went. I started laughing and looking around to see if my mom was watching and kaput; there I was on the ground. It happened so fast that the next thing I knew I was on my rump. I was 8years old.my gelding was 15.3hh. I hopped right back on( with the aid of a fence) and rode off again.
been hooked ever since!!!
