Well the first time I fell I landed on my chin, totally getting myself all dizzy and whatnot. That fall totally crushed my confidence....I didn't want to canter, I didn't trust Sonny, or didn't want to do anything but just normal walk/trot with nothing special.
I finally got over that zero confidence period and moved on....
Anyways, on Friday when I was riding with a friend at the stables, we decided to ride in one of the pasture's that was empty. So we rode around, and then I asked Sonny for a trot. We were going around nicely in a trot when all of a sudden I realized I was loosing my balance, and then I fell. I have no idea how it happened or what caused it...I know he didn't spook nor act up. It was entirely my fault but it just annoys me that I don't know how it happened.
Then today I was riding Sonny around. I asked him for a canter, and as we were nicely cantering around, I decided to ask him for a really quick stop. Well he stopped quickly....a perfect quick stop....but I wasn't expecting that quick of a stop so I flew over his neck and landed in the dirt.
The first time at the new stables, I landed on my wrist and it was swollen for a while...but the second time I did a nice front flip and landed on my butt
