Gosh, I wish I could be so happy about falling off!!

I really don't recommend falling off draft first fall (and my 'only fall' so far) left me with a concussion and threw my neck out of wack. Not a happy time...but it could have been worse!! It's a six foot drop to the bottom and could you imagine getting stepped on by a 7.5" wide hoof? I haven't fallen off since, and I try hard not to!!!

But they do say, there's a first time for everything!

Concussions aren't fun! I got one yesterday when I fell off. I also got temporary amnesia. It was a stupid fall - out on a trail ride and I think I got too relaxed. We were only walking but I hit my head hard. I still don't remember riding home or what trails we took to get there. My only memory is of one of my buddies helping me back on. I spent this afternoon with my massage therapist. Don't forget that the body remembers every fall! Now doc says I can't ride for a week. Falls s_ _ _ ! I don't want to come off anymore.
