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
