I had a fall like that too. It was winter and we were going out on a hack originally I was just going to go out to work my horse and the one girl was like I don't have enough time to ride any more, you could take my horse out on the hack. I've ridden this mare once before and she's a lesson horse, so I was like okay. As soon as I got on she kept trying to back up, and I did everything to get her forward, clicking, kicking, using my seat, she just kept backing up, my instructor was helping one of the other girls girls and she's like careful there's ice over there. And I'm like I know, but secret just kept acting weird and I thought she was going to rear up so I put my weight forward and we just collapsed. She landed on top of me and I rolled away as she got up, I was the first one to react, by grabbing the horse so she didn't take off, and then I burst into tears. :/
Apparently the girl used the wrong saddle on the mare after she was told not to and she just collapsed. I landed on my hip with the horse on top of my right leg and I cracked my head off the frozen ground. Thank god I was wearing my helmet. It definitely was scary!
HL2435: I don the same where I don't remember how I fall, in the moment you must know what your doing, because I normally kick myself free and roll clear, but after I have no idea how I fell or how I landed I can only go by bruises.
Lol Long post. :)
You are a great champion. When you ran, the ground shook, the sky opened and mere mortals parted.
I love you Vinty, you'll always be my champion.
