Unhappy ouch!! i just fell off :'(

I was riding marlea today when she started acting all weird.
She wouldn't move forward when I nudged her and then I kicked her and she reared up as if she actually couldn't move forward (but she could because I wasn't holding the reins tight.)
She then had a bucking fit when I asked her to canter and eventually I fell off and hit my head.
I hesitantly got back on and just sat there, my eyes were stinging from the tears forming and then mum came out and I blurted everything out to her.
She told me to walk marlea around her a few times and then get off.
I have a monster headache, feel a bit dizzy and a little bit sick.

Today is NOT my day...

If you feel dizzy and nauseated, GO TO THE DOCTOR. You may have a concussion or other head injuries. Better safe than sorry.

Hope you feel better soon.

Its sounds like she spooked, my horse always freezes like that before spooking but it sounds like you have a concussion and might want to go see a doctor.

It really sounds like a pain issue to me - I'm guessing she never acts this way, right? For such a dramatic change, I would be willing to bet that something was hurting her.

well... I tried using side reins for the first time ever.
She has been acting weird lately though....
When ever I do the girth up she'll paw with her left front leg, and if I canter very soon after I get on she'll buck.
Mums going to take me to the hospital soon I think because my headache is worse

I'm sorry you had a bad day. Good to know your mom is a nurse and you're going to the doctor. Please update us and let us know how you're doing when you get back.
