Phantomstallion- Yeah I definitely didn't scream haha. Afterwards I was like "What just happened?"
Mbender- Yeah it definitely can happen to anyone. That's scary what happened to your friend I don't know what I would do if a horse flipped with me.
Macabre- I'm right with ya with hating riding during this time because you never know. We had been doing circles for about 20 mins all over the place...sometimes tighter than that and we were fine. I am so glad I have a surefooted horse...he almost NEVER takes a wrong step EVER but when we do he is pretty good on catching himself. I'm glad I did something right....my old trainer told when when a horse trips pull up but that never seemed right to me to so I always just give him his head(which my new triner says is the right way to go). The only thing I wished I had done different was not falling on his neck but Since I didn't know it was coming I really couldn't prevent it. Thanks though that makes me feel a lot better after the situation. UPDATE: Phantom is completely fine. No heat or swelling this morning. And also when we let him out of the stall into the field he went and began chasing the younger horses at full gallop so I think he's definitely fine...Thank God. I'm still going to check him tonight just to be completely sure.
