I ended up displacing my knee, and breaking a rib though- so I didnt exactly go again xD
I know the broken ribs feeling, hell its not nice. I came off my girl on one of her bad days and she ran over top of me, broke a few of my ribs and carried on running.
I said some thing's I won't repeat on here, they were pretty nasty and loud and repetitive
I got up and caught her again but by this time I could only feel the pain in my hip (got the picture of the impressive bruise to!). Determined not to be beaten by a 24yo horse I got back on and worked the living breathing crap out of her until she gave in and listened. Got the fall on camera, but missed the ride afterwards as camera person was to busy with her jaw on the floor... Half my body was covered in mud, the other side was clean so I looked like a right idiot. And apparently the look of determination on my face and the stickability of my seat in that saddle were incredible afterwards (and she was rearing and jumping and pigrooting, apparently I didn't move once, I don't remember
). I got told that bubbles looked scared crapless that she had misbehaved, and **** well she should have!
I didn't feel the pain in my ribs till the next afternoon, to this day I am still thankful my besties mum only let me walk her pony the morning after the fall, if I had trotted or cantered I probably would have made my ribs worse
