Yikes, I got thrown!!!

I got bucked off today for the first time in my life I fell off a horse, hit the fence railing and had to go to urgent care.

I got 8 stitches in my arm along with 2 butterfly bandages and some skin glue. Oh lets not forget the giant abrasion on my chest from hitting the wooden pole. And the tetnus shot.

All I can say is I'm so glad I wore my helmet.



I don't feel like such a noob now, haha.

:)

What was going on with your horse?

We were working with her in the round pen, getting her used to having someone on her back in the saddle.
She does GREAT at walk and trot, not so great with the canter.

I had her trotting nice and smooth and something in must have spooked her because she went flying into a canter, we were fine for the first couple of seconds but then she started bucking.

She has this bad habit of bucking when she canters while wearing the saddle, so me being in the saddle didn't help the situation what so ever. Haa.

Willy gets upity in the round pen when he's asked to canter. I haven't ridden him in the round pen, but he definitely gets the bucks out when he's asked to canter! Maybe work her a bit longer at the canter without anyone on her...get the bucks out, and praise her when she doesn't buck...then climb aboard and see how she does...unless of course, she's having a physical reaction. I'm excited to hear how she works it out...

That's exactly what I thought after it happened. "I should have worked her longer before getting on." I'm pretty sure she's not having a physical reaction, we worked together today the same way we do every time I ride her, plus I checked to make sure the saddle wasn;t hurting her in anyway. I think it was just time for me to fall off :roll: haha.
She just isn't used to having something on her back at a canter.

Yeah my main concern when it happened was my head. Luckily I had my helmet on but I still focused all my attention on protecting my head.
My chest hit the wooden post and after I walked away from the incident I checked to make sure it wasn't bleeding or broke. And it took me a couple minutes to realize my arm had blood running down it. I didn't even feel my arm get hurt, I guess because of the adrenaline. The only way I knew about my arm is because I felt blood running off my finger tips. It was an eventful day.


I think it hurts worse now than it did when it happened!
