Had a pretty "epic" fall, as my sister put it. I'm working on changing canter leads up the long diagonal and I manage just fine up until the actual canter-trot-canter transition. I fell after changing the lead because I lost my balance after *attempting* to sit the trot before transitioning to cantering. Roy is 16.2hh and I'm only 5"3 so needless to say it was quite a long way to fall. My right buttock, hip, lower back and ribs took the fall and I hit my head as well.
My bum, lower back and ribs are KILLING ME. I'm spending the day in bed just to be comfortable. I woke myself up at 6:30 this morning because I was turning myself and it hurt so bad. I have no visible bruising but my mum reckons it's probably internal.
This is the worst fall I've had. The twisted thing? I'm itching to get back into the saddle and I did the exact same transition after I got back on after my fall.
/woe is me whinge
Any advice to help the aching body? :P
