A little over two years ago, I was helping my sister with a little mustang she was wanting to re-break. We didn't know anything about her past so obviously we took everything slow. After a couple weeks groundwork she was listening well enough to start under saddle so we tacked her up (which she did wonderfully) and I mounted her. I was just going to mount her, sit for a minute, then dismount. As I was getting ready to dismount with one foot out of the stirrups she decided to lift her head up and hit her nose on the barb wire fence. The next thing I know I'm laying on the ground on the other side of the arena. She scraped her hoof down my entire lower leg and I still can't feel anything on it. I haven't fallen off since but it took me probably 6 months to ride another horse and when I got my first horse, who I knew was broke but hadn't been ridden in years, I almost cried when my first ride on him was over because I was so uptight the whole time.
So anyone wanna share their stories??
