    WoW Amber. I'm glad your okay! And Lark too. That's super scary and not something I ever want to experience. Yikes! *hugs*

I'd then do exactly what you did when she tanked with you, and just let her run for as long as she can. Once she runs out of steam, you push her, and you keep on pushing until she basically can't run anymore. That then makes the running your idea, not hers, and I can bet that she'll think twice about doing it again, and if she does, same routine. Used that a few times with serial tankers and it has always worked for me
    That's how this field is.. I was just too close to the tree line (40ish yards), which I usually have no problem with. They usually start to tire and slow on their own before we get from one end to the other.. I was only about to get about 1/3 of the way before Lark pulled that stunt.

    I wish I had it on video. Or it would have been AWESOME to have a GoPro camera on my head.. My dad has one he sticks on the side of his drag car but he's said he'd let us use it for barrels.. I'd love to have that video.

    Head doesn't hurt as much today, just sore.. back/right side hurts a good bit but just bruising.

    Glad to hear both you and Lark are okay!!!

    Do you think that because she hasn't breezed much out in the open she might of got scared and ran herself into a panic?

    She may have but it wasn't a scared run away type of thing, it was more of a "I'm going over here and you aren't going to stop me, I want to go this way."

    She's usually great, light mouth, I can ride her everywhere bareback..hell, even go through the barrel pattern bareback with no problems.. That's why I was just so shocked Sunday.

    Oh I forgot! SH you may be right!! Holly called me last week and asked if she could ride Nikki..Sure, Nikki's great, never any problems..EVER.. Holly texts me a few hours later saying Nikki had turned into a bronc and tried to throw her.. Now, I've owned Nikki for almost 4 years and she's NEVER bucked with me, ever.. Maybe they're all losing their minds?

    Sorry to hear this happened. I've been on runaways-it's no fun! And the endoing is very scary, too. And those hoof-shaped bruises are sure colorful! Hope you are back to normal real soon!
