they are the only bruises I can share, I have to say that 4 hours sleep is not enough, I have aches and pains all over, including my little toe, which suddenly started throbbing about 3 am.
I fell off because of nerves, we were trying our first under saddle canter with Ben, he bunny hopped into it, pulled me forward, lunged again, and I got scared, and managed to boot him in the sides, so he flew forward, found the arena fence in the way, and ducked away, by this time I was exiting over his left shoulder.
When your trainer is saying "SIT UP" listen to her.
If you already have nerve issues about cantering, don't try cantering your greenie.
Falling off isn't the end of the world, you will probably survive.
Getting back on and riding walk and trot felt great.
The decision to send Ben to my trainer for a month to work on his canter feels great. As does the decision to go for a reining lesson this week.
