I was lunging Foxy, My 15.2hh, solid build TB. I have done this heaps of times wiht mum before and its been fine. But yea I was lunging him and mum was riding him, I was giving her a lesson. All we had planned was a few cirlces walking and a little bit of a trot.
But my silly boy dropped his head, I gave him a bit of a growl and told him to get his head up, then the little bugger took a few strides and did 2 bucks poor mum flew over his head
Crashed onto her sholder then back. I was terrifyed because she wasnt moving :( I ran over, she was consous, thank god!, winded tho so couldnt breath properly. I got her to roll on her back. Trying to think recovery position, which I think is actually on your side....but yea..didint know what to do! She got her breath back and was able to sit up. Said her shoulder hurt, I took a look and said I think you dislocated it , as it looked like a bone was poking out , a bump in the skin. So I unsaddled Foxy and raced mum to the hospital. Xrays were taken and yea she had actually dislocated or fractured some bones on her colar bone or somthing like that.
My god I felt so horrible, like it was all my fault. I wanted to cry but I didnt :( I can honestly say through all the accidents I have had riding it was scarier seeing her come off and have this happen than all of them combined. Im angry at Foxy but of course know that its what horses do and he just got to excited and silly, but im angry at myself more. I know it wasnt my fault but it feels like it was...possibly because it was on my horse..i dunno.
Either way absolutly no one will be riding either of my horses for along time, only I will be. One horse is lame so he's gonne be a bit of work onces he's ready to start again.
But yea that was my scary afternoon.
