Well, there's a horse at work, called Ash. He has a buck in him, usually when he is excited but sometimes he does it just because! Not often, rarely, but he never offers any warning, he just suddenly takes off broncing and bucking at the same time!
In December just gone I was riding him in a jump lesson. We were doing a course, and on our final jump, on landing he decided to gallop off at full speed and buck, which of course, plopped me on the floor. He caught me with his hoof as he cantered off, throwing me into the fence and fracturing my leg That's healed fine now.
Today I rode him for the first time since our previous misunderstandings. I have been riding others since then of course. It wasn't a lesson, I was just doing my own thing with him. He was being a diamond, really nice. We pulled off a nice walk to canter transition, cantered the long side of the arena. I said "good boy Ash" as I asked for trot, and just as I finished my sentence he decided to gallop off, buck and again plop me off!! I tried to get up but I couldn't! My boyfriend somehow managed to get me in the car and drive me to the hospital. I got there and the paramedics had to lift me out the car and into a trolley. I had some X-rays as they thought I had fractured my pelvis, spine or something. Luckily I didn't! Instead I have some severe muscular bruising. I can't physically move without A a wheelchair or B my boyfriend and a walking stick! Doctors say it should get better in a couple of weeks.
You know, sometimes, there's a horse you can't ever find a connection with
