Ugh.. Accident last Sat
Dana, who is one of my best friends @ riding, school & home, was riding Roger on Saturday so I could ride Diesel.. well we were cantering figure eights and D and I turned a little late... Roger turned really fast to fallow us and Dana fell.
She didn't get up for a short while.. We all stopped and waited. Caroline was riding her horse with us and had left the gait open. At first Rog didn't notice and just stood in the ring, bored while my instructor was busy with Dana.. but then he saw and just walked right out. I was going to offer to hold D and someone else's horse while they caught Roger, but before I could another girl panicked and dismounted.. running after Roger. Her pony just ran right out as soon as she had let go. So then she had to get him, too.
After he was caught we had someone hold him (just a friend who came out to see D with me) and the girl caught Roger.. when she got back Caroline had helped Dana up and got her back on.
So the lesson continues but Roger and Dana don't do anything but walk around..she keeps saying she feels like "gravity is pushing on her arm". Soo her X-rays have come back and she broke her shoulder. 0.o
I love her and feel so badly! also I'm worried.. her mom was watching and was already convinced my pony was bad. I rode him for the first time since the accident yesterday, he was great... He is getting such a bad rep though this is not the first bad experience with him. :(
Well send Dana good wishes!! I hope she makes a full recovery!!! (Sorry for how long this is!)
