Welp, it happened today, I fell off of Fritz today. We were at the end of our lesson, I had taken my feet out of the stirrups, and was juuuuuuuuust getting super comfortable, my legs were relaxed, I dropped my shoulders, my arms were relaxed and I was starting to feel real good about the lesson I just had.
We started trotting the last lesson I had, and this lesson was just a continuation of the last. I was doing sooooo good!!! I was gaining more and more confidence in myself, and was starting to relax on Fritz, over all I was super proud of myself, and Fritz too! He had even started picking up on a few vocal cues I was giving, well I dunno if it was that, or if a double click meant trot. Lol.
Anyway, just was I was rounding the last corner of the arena, my instructor went into a stall to start mucking it out, she popped her head out of the stall and dumped the water bucket. That's when Fritz went one way, and I went the other.
I landed on my right hip, and right side. It knocked the wind out of me, I was so worried about Fritz coming back at me, but as I looked up, I saw him trotting off in the other direction. Lol. OoOOOoh Fritzy.
Over all it was a good lesson. I told my instructor that I didnt blame Fritz, that I blamed her.
