    Arrow She freakin' kicked me!

    Well, yesterday, we took all the horses on a trail ride, and mom rode Savannah, who was really really really frisky. So after we got everyone untacked, I took Savannah out an ran with her out in the neighbor's hayfield. Well, she galloped off like a bucking bronc and was dragging me along. I tried to turn her and she gave a massive kick, and clipped my right elbow. THANKFULLY she missed the joint, and hit the skin mostly, the bone may be bruised.

    That was my first kick, well, technically third but the first unexpected one!

    My niece got some pictures.

    Well after, I put her on a lunge to get all the buck out, so she could have some fun. Go some pics of that, too! Enjoy everyone.




    Right before I got kicked:


    Lunging:



    There's more I'll post up later.

    Sounds like she was just being full of herself. Next time I think I would just put her on the lounge line and let her buck it out and not be running right next to her.

    Agreed, that's what I did with Moon until he finally calmed down and we didn't need to do it anymore.

    Why was it unexpected? If you let her buck and kick on the lunge she will buck and kick on a lead rope. She doesn't know the difference. The next time it could be your head. Be carefull and think things through before you do them.

    My horse bucks on the lunge line. And when I'm free lunging. But never has she ever even tried to buck when I was leading her or riding her, so saying that if you let something happen on the lunge line, it will happen on a lead rope isn't true for every horse, and they can definitely learn the difference.

    To the OP, I'm glad you weren't hurt. Horses can be such little buggers sometimes, huh? The first and only time I've ever been kicked, I was walking up to a big QH gelding in the pasture to hook up a leg strap that had come lose. I came at him from the front, so he definitely knew I was there, but as soon as I got that strap in my hand, he spun around and cow-kicked me right below my butt and continued to prance around with his buddy. I, on the other hand, dropped like a sack of potatoes and had to have my friends half-carry me back to the barn. Two hours later, I still took my riding lesson, bruised butt and all. =]

    She's 12.2

    Thanks, riccil0ve, I agree.

    Usually I correct her on a lead. But today I don't see why I didn't just lunge her. My elbow hurtsss soo bad :/ lol.

    You got to be careful. For her to have done that to you, you must have let her get away with it in the past. I would work on the ground and with her manners before taking her out in that same setting again.

    In a situation like this, I would have gotten her in a smaller more space limited area and I would have lunge her until she was done her mess.

    I had a similar incident with a big gelding I had. A pro when it came to loading the horse trailer, but one random day decided he wouldnt go in. I took the lunge line out and lunged him near the trailer until he realized that being stupid was wayyyy more work than just doing what he was asked.
