Well today I took a big fall off Chinga. We were in a canter nearly into a gallop and then I fell. All I remember from it is the cantering part and then lying on the ground with my riding friend(Jahla) rushing over asking if I was okay. But I couldn't breath. I lay there for about 30-45 seconds not being able to breath. And no I wasn't winded it was alot worse. I've been majorly winded and it was worse.
I know it wasn't Chinga's fault I know he didn't do anything wrong. I was also very happy with Chinga as as soon I fell he stopped.
Um I broke a rib, I didn't get the wind knocked out of me I just couldn't breathe at all. My friend said I looked like I had good balance before I fell. I could not sleep at all last night as I brused my back badly and my rib hurt like hell.
My grandma is a nurse so its all good! But I got back on Chinga the day after and he didn't seem so keen on being ridden I checked him over and got my instuctor to check him over as well and he isn't hurt at all. Then I got on him today and he was fine. Could he have gotten scared when I fell?
