Horse fell with me..

It's been deathly cold the past few days here in Oklahoma, and today was my first day off work in a long time, so I took advantage of being able to ride. I rode my 20 year old Rosie first, then got on Sassy for a bit. I trotted her on the barrel pattern a few times, then just randomly rode her here and there. We were loping around, and I wasn't paying attention to the footing. We were coming towards a corner in the pasture so I just signaled for her to turn, and she started to, and before I knew it, plop! She fell right over, I moved my leg just in time but she still smooshed my foot, and I'm still trying to figure out how but I managed to punch myself in the face XD Sassy just laid there like she had been taking a nap, and after encouragement got back up. It was weird how it was all in slow motion but at the same time happened just like that. I didn't realize just how wet that corner was until after the fact. I trotted her around to make sure she was okay, then went and untacked. I didn't want to end my good day on a bad note, so I went ahead and rode Dream also, which was awesome seeming that I haven't riden her in a few months:) totally random, just thought I'd sshare since this has never happened to be before:P

The same thing happened to a man who rode at my old barn. Horse slid, went down on his side and then laid there long enough that everyone started to freak out a bit. The rider moved out of the way and then the horse got up. Everyone was happy he didn't thrash around because the rider could've gotten hurt worse. Glad that your horse was calm too and you both came out of it uninjured!

This happened to me once, my old 17.2hh got a pole stuck between his front legs jumping... I think he tried to take it as a raised trotting pole then changed his mind, and fell on me, and I fell with him and on top of a jump block. Those things hurt! I had to get my other foot out of the stirrup and on top of the saddle to push myself free, then he got up, spazzed out, and we called it a day! Swellings, bumps and bruises D:

That happened to a friend of mine this summer. His gelding tripped and they both went down. He hurt his elbow pretty good and wasn't supposed to ride for a while, but he was needed. He just required some help with saddling for a week or so.

I know as bad as it sounds Romeo falls with me quite a bit. The latest one was in a field he went all the way down to his belly. We were both fine but it is very scary.
The worst one was when he fell onto his butt and I got pushed out of the saddle, but my foot was still in the stirrup and I saw his tail right in front of me (I was behind his bum and foot in the stirrup) Thank my lucky stars Romeo is very calm and safe and he let me get my foot unstuck.
