my first time riding a horse, was my first fall(: was riding this cute little pony in a lesson with a girl who was much more advanced then me. She let her horse into a trot, and my pony followed. All well and good except that the 12 hand pony culd not keep up with her 17.2 best friend, so she started to canter. I actually managed to ride the canter out untill we reached the corner and started bucking. i fell, jump up, caught my pony and threw myself back on before my instructor could even get over to me :P
my most recent fall was VERY unimpressive. While cross country schooling my horse stopped at a cabin jump with hay bales surronding it....and i did not ;)
my worst fall was when i was in camp and while i was cantering my horse(in an indoor) i lost a stirrup, tried to reach for it but missed and slipp that way....kept sliding untill i was pinned between a cantering horse and a wall, unable to fall or get back up. Stayed on for the entire longside(60 feet) untill the horse cut the corner and i was released. I got away from that with a bad headache and some bruses....my instructor was hysterical because she though i had died.
my funniest fall was when i was sitting on my lease horse bareback while he grazed in this Tiny space before the woods began. one moment he was grazing with his head down like the lazy horse i rode with two whips and spurs just to get him trotting, and the next he picked up his head, and executed a flawless halt to canter. i did i backwards flip before sliding off his butt. my friends still wont stop laughing.
