Falling Off --Big Time

So phantom and I havent jumped in a while and he was also in his playful mood so we really were just kinda playing around. He took off and swerved slightly at the jump which knocked me off balance and i ended up putting my weight on his neck...he freaked and stopped quick and i basically flipped off him lol. It was not his fault at all totally all mine
(p.s. i know i wasnt posting properly still working on that with my english friend actually just started working on it like 2 weeks ago lol and im aware the salute wasn't right like i said i was just having fun lol.)

Hope it gives you some laughs on this rainy day (well its raining where i am)

Hope you are okay!
Phantom, this video actually scared me a little. There is a reason you fell off, and it's much bigger than him humping up and deeking to the outside. I won't say more as this is in the video section, but you're welcome to ask me to explain. :)

I will do my best to bite my tongue and only say that I sincerely think you need to stop jumping immediately, however small they may be.

I hope you are ok, I didn't find the video overly funny, just a little alarming. Thank you for wearing a helmet and your boy is as cute as ever. I'm not trying to be a fuddy duddy, it just would have been a lot different if he had thrown you into a fence instead of a neat somersault over his shoulder.

Well, I actually did laugh, though not at you falling off. It just reminded me of a video my husband took this one time...someday I'm going to send it into AFV.

Anyway, glad you weren't hurt. Glad to see you wearing a helmet (how about adding a vest?). And glad it hasn't scared you.

Macabre- i find nothing u said "fuddy duddy" i know i am VERY inexperienced in jumping (this vid shows it) Thats why this season I am going to start english lessons...i never realized how different english and western riding were but now i know they are VERY different lol. I will be starting lessons in the next two weeks to hopefully improve...dont worry im not going to be entering in any competitions its just for fun.....but i promise if i dont get the hang of it i will sell my jumping saddle lol(at least thats my plan now) i really want to get into reining but i cant do that right now as i cant get a trainer i am grateful that my friend(whose been jumping for ten yrs) is giving me free lessons with jumping...she is going to start me out on lunge line with flat work.
Mercedes - I always wear a helmet SAFETY FIRST....a woman at my shows was riding a WILD appy and it ran straight at the metal gate of the shoot then stopped dead and she flew over and slammed head first on the top of the gate. Her helmet split in half but she was fine...I don't think she should have ridden that horse afterwards it seemed too dangerous but she did it anyway. I wore a helmet before that but that was an eye openner to a lot of people who didn't and I have invested in a vest thanks!! haha

Sorry if this video scared anyone but normally after i fall off(and im ok) i think it is funny because i know it was me who did something completely stupid to make it happen.

No no no, don't ever give up, I'd just thoroughly enjoy seeing you with a few lessons under your belt! It's good you can take a wipe out like that and laugh about it, I know I was the same at your age I think I'm just getting more easily scared in my old age - I'm actually saving to buy a HELMET. Freaky!

haha thats the first thing i did when i started riding was buy a helmet. I laugh at myself i guess to shake off the embarassment lol. Plus as i said before its normally because i did something stupid and preventable. I am very cautious these are big animals i mean phantom (not that he would) could totally kill me if he wanted to they all could so you have to be cautious around them.(except my grandfather seems to think phantom and every other horse out there is going to kill me lol but he's a worry wart only because he saw my first horse slam me into a fence and rip the skin off my palms by pulling the leadline through them after dragging me around(yeah he got sold because he definately didnt like me lol) I don't like it when the girls at my shows put three people on a horse bareback(none with helmets on cause "theyre too cool for helmets") and gallop around like nothing is going to happen...that is SO unbelieveably dangerous.
I wont give up and i am definately going to go through lessons and see where that takes me. Thanks for your concern though my parents know NOTHING about horses and never really pay attention to what goes on with me and Phantom--just not interested.

Bah, I know how it feels girl. I was in the same boat growing up. I was lucky my grandpa had horses, and he always made sure I owned one, but my parents couldn't care less. My grandpa finally bought me a helmet when I was 15 because I begged for one! It got broken, and I've been virtually helmetless since because once you get used to riding without, it's so hard to get used to riding with it!

Keep up the hard work, I know it's tough when you don't have anybody, but if I made it without killing myself, you can to!
