OMG! That looks like that really hurt! I am glad you were able to get up and brush the dust off of your face...er....feet :P

I have never - *knocks on wood* ever been bucked off before...I have successfully flown off face first over my horses shoulder, twice. And I've come off of a horse Rearing, but bucking....not really - and I have just jinxed myself! lol

Yeesh...I am glad you are ok!
Yeah it hurt quite a bit lol, but it was worse on the journey of an hour and a half home, I swear bumps and holes were just jumping out of no where onto the road :L I got into hospital and one lady with her daughter looked at me in shock and goes "oh my goodnes youve just been thrown off a horse havent you?!" (I was still in jods and my face was white and I had gone into shock by then lol) my reply was "uh yeah, not long ago, ground was hard.." she was there with her daughter who had come off a horse the day before... and hurt her finger. lol.

I was more brushing the dirt of mums jersey to lol [oops sorry mum]
thats the first time I've been bucked off lol, ive never come off a rear or anything [although Ive never had a fall worthy rear so thats probably why]

gosh you didnt learn the first time you face planted? lol thats gotta hurt :S
lol yeah you probably have, I hope you take your super glue with you when you ride next :L

In all honesty (before the pain set in) I wanted to get back on that **** thing and let him know that wasnt ok [should he do it again of course] not like I was gonna walk over to him and whip him after bucking, thats just stupid. I really wanted to get back on with a whip, hold like hell onto the saddle and wait for him, he knew exactly what he was doing so I had no doubt he'd do it again.
But he wasn't my horse so I couldn't give him my mind, god help any of my horses should they ever do that, god. help. them. Unless it was from pain ofcourse. But This horse wasnt in pain, I checked saddle fit etc and bridle and girth and I checked his back befre I put the saddle on, checked his hooves and legs etc so he wasnt in pain.

Yeah that is a lot lol. I dont muck out the bigger paddocks, but gemma's paddock is only about 10m by 18m so it's little enough :)
