    11. When was your last fall? What happened?
    1. I own 2 mares.
    2. 3-5 times a week, except near finals
    3. Since I was 4, so 21 years, but I've ridden much less for the last 7 due to college. :)
    4. Transitioning from Western ranch work to hunter/jumper. I also trail ride, and like riding dressage in the arena when I'm bored.
    5. 25
    6. Not yet, but I'm hoping to go to some local shows this fall
    7. I have a 10 yo 14hh 1/2 Welsh, 1/4 Arabian, 1/4 paint mare that I've had since she was a yearling. She was bred in Kalispel, MT, and moved to MO 7 years ago. She's developed chronic laminitis after years alone on too much fescue pasture. I trail ride her some when she's sound enough to get conditioned. The other mare is a 14 yo 14.2hh quarter horse that I purchased last fall. I'm hoping to do low level H/J with her.
    8. On the road to a trail, yes. Otherwise it's distracting.
    9. Lots of stuff. Mostly folk and indie.
    10. Make it to a few local shows and not place last.
    11. A few years ago while home for winter break, from the back of a pony into a mud puddle. I was trotting around bareback with a halter, and she got annoyed and did that little drop of the shoulder and spin move all snotty ponies have right by the pasture's only puddle.

    11. When was your last fall? What happened? Last fall was July 27 2011, I'm just going to repost the what I wrote in the thread I made after it happened lol
    I was riding my horse Bella with my friend Alexa and her horse Alibi. We were riding in the neighbors outdoor arena which is much nicer then ours, it was the first time my horse had ever been there but she does pretty good in new places and was listening pretty well. There were a few jumps set up that Alexa was going over, no problems there, at one point Bella tried to canter but I held her back. A little while later I decided I was going to let her canter, Alexa was going over a jump so I decided to ride along the rail going the same way knowing that Bella would pick up the canter easily. All was going well until I tried to bring her back to a trot and she wouldn't, so we are cantering towards the fence and she's not stopping, if I turn her we are going to run into Alibi, UGH! So I just keep trying to stop her, here is where it gets fuzzy, but Alexa filled me in since she saw the whole thing as I said "WHOA Oh crap" or something along those lines lol. Apparently she hopped to a stop and then turned, I started loosing my seat during the hopping and then when she turned I kept going straight. I landed hard on my butt(other side this time lol) and skid across the ground
