I rode as a kid bareback/hackamore, I was cantering along the side of the road in grass riding my sister's part arab gelding who shied at something, jumped sideways and I went down on my knees LOL that hurt!
This year is the first and second time I have fallen off my mare since I got back into riding 8yrs. Ago, the first time was coming in our driveway with friends, my dogs decided to be morons and flew down the hill through the bush and went to nip at Spice's heels, she gave a kick up at them....I was in LALA land and tipped forward and fell right beside her LOL
Then this fall I was on a trail ride with about 20 other riders, there was a lady I knew behind me on a big gelding, she was yaking away to me and I hear this commotion, I turn and look and her head is two feet from mine but I can't see her horse's head/neck! He had tripped and stumbled where his head/neck went under between my mare's back legs LOL she gave a little jump forward which got the horse in front of her po'd who kicked at her (we were in a very narrow trail) and Spice spun to the left and I slowly slide down the side of her LOL she didn't panick but stood and looked at me like she was saying sorry but I didn't know what else to do!!!
Hopefully I'm done falling now!
My horses are the joy in my life.....
