After I rode Kascade under saddle for the first time, I got all dizzy and sick. Went and layed down on the hay bales and fell asleep for about 20 minutes. When my trainer came in and saw me sit up and look really pale and watery eyed, she knew somthing was wrong. I had a few of my friends try to carry me to a car to take me from the stables to my room as I couldnt walk. Two of them picked me up and I couldn't support my head and neck. I fainted/fitted on the ground. I was laying on the ground with my friends arounf me, trying to get me to respond but I couldn't find the words. I couldn't open my eyes and tears we streaming down my face and I was hyperventilating. Bad! I remember loosing all feeling in my face and hands due to this and freaking out because I didnt know what was happening. This is where I blacked out completely and lost all sense of what was going on around me. My friends carryied me to my trainers car while I was still hyperventilating and crying. So here I was in the front seat of my trainers car, my friend in the seat behind me holding my head up, my trainer holding my hand while driving and my hyperventialting and crying. I arrived at the hospital and waited there for 4 hours. I calmed down after about an hour and got some sense back. I got back to college not long ago and talked to one of my friends. Apparently while I was on the ground, I was screaming for them not to take me to the hospital and wouldnt get my vest on so that I could be warmer. She said that it was the most scariest thing she and my other friends had ever seen and that my trainer was in tears. I can't remember them carrying me to the car, or what happend before I lost it all. I can't belive this happened. It was such a scarey experience and I am so so glad that my friends and my lovely trainer was there to help me when I needed it most. Without them I may not have gotten off as easy.
Sorry about the novel guys
