    Video: A wreck I had today.

    This ended up being pretty sweet. Maya's first time gathering the whole cavvy. She was doing very well with the additional pressure right up until Cash goes galloping by. This begins a chain reaction that was probably fueled further by my flag and culminates in an emergency dismount and recovery.

    Thought I'd show this just to prove that these near-misses happen and ain't no reason to start thinking that my horse has a 'problem'. Ride on! It don't mean nothing!

    Glad it all turned out ok....another day in the world of horses! I was watching a trainer on tv....can't remember who it was...but he was teaching about how to cross water. He was riding in what he thought was more shallow waters and suddenly the horse sunk under water and was swimming....totally threw him off guard. Pretty funny though.

    After you decided to slip off, was it you backing the horse up rapidly, or was she trying to back away from you?
    I thouhgt you had there when you drpped the flag, but I guess she didn't want to settle.

    Not really sure what you were doing or the point of it, but I have to say I am super jealous of your ability to hop on bareback from the ground, a skill I have never been able to/probably will never be able to do.

    Yes! Yes! Count me in the jealous crowd. I could do it when I was 18, on a small horse, but that's about it.

    What happened there was that my own momentum when I came off was still going forward and because I was in front of her shoulder she took that as me asking for her to back up. At that point I was trying to get behind her shoulder so I could get her stopped by moving her hindquarters out. Though watching it after the fact, I could have stopped her easier than that. There was an element of tunnel vision in it. What I mean by that is, even after my feet hit the ground I was still in the mode of "get her stopped" in response to her spinning away with a lot more energy. It took me several seconds to dial my own energy back down enough to actually allow her to settle. My own recovery time is still a little slower than I'd like for it to be. Fortunately this mare is pretty tough and gets over it pretty quickly.

    Thanks. She's a mustang.

    Re. Mounting bareback from the ground, try grabbing the mane higher up on the neck rather than right next to the withers. You want to get a really good handful. The more hair you grab the better and probably the less it hurts when you're pulling it. Then you want to jump a few times and get as high as possible before taking your best jump and simultaneously using both your hands to pull yourself up over the back. I'm doing most of the pulling with my left hand.

    Oh I wish! I can barely reach the mane halfway up from the ground ;) I am lucky if I can get on without a 3-step mounting block!

    Ummmmmm

    What does gathering the cavvy mean, and why were you holding a flag?

    And ummmm what were you trying to do?


    Nice horse though!
