It's the third day that's the worst. The day it happens I find I can get through with ice, day two NSAIDs take care of (no flexeril is RX still as far as I am aware) but day three is pure, well, rhyming word here. Now ask me about allergies and sinus swelling with a fractured cheekbone, I'll trade anything, anytime just about... Hope you're feeling not so sore.

No -- It is not available OTC but Drs. usually do not have a problem writing scrips for it. It is not addictive and has no side effects other than making some people drowsy. I take them 2 at a time but I have really bad problems. They do make my mouth dry. If I do much of anything, I cannot get out of bed without help the following AM if I do not take them at bedtime.

Tiny, I'm sorry you came off like that. Isn't there a song that says "keep your mind in the middle while your butt spins round and round"? I've had to do that a few times. I once had a horse that did not spook and run, he'd just randomly start doing reining spins. And he was never trained in reining. It was just his go-to, you've-made-me-mad, so-we'll-do-this-for-a-while move.

After 50, it matters not if the Horse is 17 hands or 15 hands, the ground is just so much harder than it was 30 years ago

Get well soon....

Tiny that can happen to anyone. I dont think its just "You" or your riding skills.
I have had my spook monster now for almost a year...I still have not brought him to a trot under saddle because of his spooks, WE are working on it.
It gets better with time and lots of work'
Hope your not to sore and getting better.

Bummer Tiny. If it helps, I think there was bad ride lingering in the air today. I was just about to post a whiny rant about my inability to jump over my own shadow today when I saw yours and decided my complete lack of riding skills was just a bad day. I can't sit those **** spins out either. I'll take and up and down spook any day over a spin. A little whining, followed by a little wine, and a nice bubble bath should help.

Something very similar happened to me today! Except it was a deer instead of a jogger and my horse ran home -__- I feel the same way you do, it's the second time in two years he's gotten me off this way and it's really frustrating. I hope you're not too sore!!

Just a note for those with spinners...an Aussie-saddle is pretty near designed to help keep you on in a spin. The poleys slam into your thighs and force your hips to stay aligned with the horse. I bought one because I was hurt while riding - OK, when the riding stopped - and could barely sit in a saddle. About a week later, little Lilly spooked at a dove, did a 180, jumped a couple of lengths and then did another 180. I was caught totally by surprise. I ended up with a big, mickey-mouse shaped bruise on my left thigh...but I was still in the saddle.

Just a thought. I understand different preferences, and have been playing around with using an Abetta western saddle on Mia lately, after a month of riding her in an English saddle. But for just staying on a horse who spins, an Australian style saddle is hard to beat. Yeah, it is cheating...so sue me!

I disliked the only Aussie saddle I ever rode in. I found it hard to post the trot. But, I have thought about putting a western saddle on Z. it's a thought, I mean, about the Aussie saddle. I just got rid of one saddle that didn't fit any horse I ride. Now, I only have one useless saddle to sell on. don't feel like I should buy a new one 'til I sell the other.

Anyone want a Lauriche saddle? (they are actually very desirable saddles, so wont' be hard to sell)
