Unfortunatly falling is a part of riding... In fact, falling is a part of Life itself, gravity is a heartless witch. The only thing you can do is get buck up. If she trips and falls does she refuse to stand back up? I would guess not...

What exactly is a rised when it comes to something that can be sprained?

Do you mean the body part between your hand and your arm? AKA a wrist.

I am guessing her riding instructor has a good plan to get her back on track. Falling off at some point was inevitable.

I'm guessing the OP meant wrist, hahaha!

Anyway, well, as has been mentioned, falling off is a part of riding horses; no matter how good of a rider you are, you may come off from time to time...period. You just gotta buck up, saddle up, and get back on and try again.

If this is the young lady in your other thread, it sounds like she has a pony that is either too much for her, is getting tired of being shown, or arena ridden, or is just confused on what her rider is asking and is acting out because of it. They need a refresher with a good trainer, to get them both back on track.
