I actually admire the riders that have ate the dirt many times and still ride. I look up to them because I think that if they can do it, then I can.
I've just got my horse 3 months ago, and just two weeks ago, he made me eat the dirt real hard too, and it's funny about the haiku thing because that's exactly how it felt, that I could write a poem on the way down because it was like slow motion lolz.
But really actually, I'm glad I fell, because that following week he tried a new tactic to throw me off but my new awareness made me a better rider and I was bette prepared and I didn't even fall the second time he tried. I like to think falling improves your sense of what you need to focus on balancing or reacting.
