On the other hand, the most horrific crash I've ever had on horseback happened last year on an Arab I went to try. I was unconscious for over 5 min, I cracked my pelvis, 2 ribs, a concussion, and bruises everywhere. I had to sleep in a chair for over a month and TG for pain killers. I had such a fear of getting back on a horse again that it took 6 months and a lot of will power to step into a saddle. I never did heal completely.
Actually, I was wondering what kind of cookies you like.
Very sorry to hear about your accident, though.
I understand your preference to QHs. My previous mare was an appy and she would do anything, go anywhere and nothing ever spooked her. When I first got Stella she was like this
most of the time, (sometimes still is) but has improved greatly in the past year.
