Ok so I was riding my mare today.and im kind of re-training her.and we were working on flat stuff.like just basic walk jog stuff. And so I decided to walk her around the whole "yard" and there was a hole in this on spot a couple months ago but they filled it in.
Anyways.....it rained like all day yesterday. Ugh..hate rain! But you know I want her to get used to doing different things.but we have walked over this hole like multiple times over the past couple months.its totally safe. So I walked up to it.and she stopped.and so I asked her to move on and she wouldn't go.so I made her go.but stupid me of course wouldn't listen to my horses insincts and she went and all of a sudden I felt her front end just go down.and it was like quick sand.i was sooo scared.
So she tried to jump out and so she got her front legs out and then her back legs went in deeper.so I jumped off and by now it was only a foot fall because she was basically laying on the ground. But I got off and she jumped out.i was sooo scared. I walked her around to make sure she was ok and stuff.she was fine.besides it being cold here and her having freezing mud up past her hocks.lol.i was just glad she was ok.i was soo scared she was going to break her legs or something! I figured when I jumped off that's 115 pounds she doesn't have to carry.
Im glad she's ok! That was my scary riding story of the day! Lol.stupid me should have listened to her!
