I got bucked off today :(
It was my fault. I was riding this horse in the lower pasture where it is always flooded. He was doing great, I guess I took it too far. I decided to ride out into the spotwhere the water is about knee high. He freaked when his feet sunk in the deeper water. He whirled around and started bucking. I tried to get my reins short enough to pull his head around, couldn't quite do it. After a few seconds I got my balance and felt him slow down, I thought I was going to make it. One second later he dumps me. I landed on my hip, got the.wind knocked out of me. While I am laying there, unable to move with my wind gone, my hip hurt so bad I thought I broke it. I probably laid there for 10 min. I found out I could move it, nothing was broke. But I tried to walk back to.get the horse, the pain was so intense I kept almost passing out. I made it about ten feet at a time. The last 50 feet I just pushed through, I was almost completely blind. Not the dark blind like I am going to pass out, everything was so bright and blurry I couldn't see. Finally. I made it back to a chair and my phone and got some help. I am almost positive I was in shock from the pain. This was the most terrifying fall I.have ever had.
