He Fell On Me :(

A few days ago I was trotting on Chinga and it was slightly wet. So I didn't canter or do anything risky. Perfectly fine conditions to be doing walk and trot. His a very trippy horse but you can easily "pick him up". Today, something happened. He tripped then slid. After this his front legs went down. I knew we were gone but weren't quick enough to move. Next thing I'm laying on the ground with my horse laying ontop of me from my chest down. He got up carefully, then stood above me while I lay on the ground screaming. In these few seconds my trainer had walked into the shed to make up Chinga's feeds for the night. I don't blame anyone! I had a nice contact, my trainer couldn't of stopped it, it wasn't Chinga's fault eaither. It knocked my confidence for a tad but my trainer threw me on a school master and I was good to go.

Note: We've been working on his tripping with ground polls, ect for quite a while (my trainer and I).

I wouldn't have screamed and didn't mean to but it was like that instent reaction type thing? At the moment Chinga's perfectly fine and I had a few days off and now I'm back 100% -- working on those ground polls more then ever. I figured I'd just share this :)

Anymore idea's on teaching him too "pick up his feet". Would be wonderful.

Ouch!! Hope you're ok girl that's no good at all, you've been havign a real bad run of it haven't you!
As for his tripping, if he's traveling forward and off the forehand he won't trip so much. Also, let your farrier know that he's tripping, often corrective shoeing can alleviate the problem

Yeah, its been a very dodgy run :) But I do have a wonderfully well mannered horsie. We let the farrier know, he's going to have a look at him next time he comes out and see if he can do anything for him.

My horse trips a lot also. In EVERY lesson he trips 3-4 times. In one a few weeks back, He tripped and I almost fell off. I think caviletti will work. (I don't know how to spell caviletti.) They are like trotting poles raised off the ground a bit. I hope this helps. :)

Oww! Glad you are ok though, yeah I think I would have screamed, probably would think that something was broken!
I think working on trot poles is good for picking his feet up. Maybe spread them different distances too so he shortens and lengthens so it gets used to picking his feet up and looking where he is going.
