I didn't really have that many terrible falls (luckily) but some were embarrasing. lol.
Okay, so I was @ my barn's local show last summer. Lexi was being a little brat hehe she was kinda in heat so it's not like it was surprising. :P Plus, she used to spook a lot from crowds.
Anyway, we were cantering around the arena, when all of a sudden she starts spooking @ the crowd (people were loud) & started bucking out of frustration. She didn't really wanna work that day.
I kept turning her in circles, when all of a sudden she like SHOOTS off in the other direction (remember everyone is watching!) & I basically fly off, hitting my side into the fence. Ouch.
I was okay, but I really was embarrased. Then Lexi came & ran to me, LOL I thought she was gonna run me over! But she didn't. I like how she does that though...comes right back to me, so I don't have to go alllllll the way to the other side of the arena (where she had run to). ;)
Another time, this fall was kinda painful:
I was hacking out with my friends. We were cantering, & there was this like huggeeee branch. Lexi of course was going pretty fast (we all were), so I didn't duck in time, the branch basically pushed me right outta the saddle, & I landed in a sticker bush!!!! My whole right arm had some scrapes from it, ouch. So I walked the rest of the way to the barn lol, owww.
