Oxer - Phantom's never had shoes on and plus when we show we show in a dirt/clay mix. During the summer it should be okay because the heat dries the ground quickly. It rained a week ago here and since it was cold the dirt under the top layer didn't get dried unfortunately. Thanks for the suggestion though...I didn't know they had "cleats" for horses I always wondered how they did those tight turns on grass without issue. haha learn something new every day. My new barn owner is thinking of raking a grassy area to make it all dirt so we don't have this problem again as long as it is ok with the land owner.

Nice save, Phantom. I hate it when that happens but you both did good and I'm glad you're both okay.

Thanks Smrobs I'm glad we're both okay too....I was really worried about his knees and his one front leg that stretched out far infront of him. Everything seems fine I rode him again today and he never took a wrong step no heat, swelling, stiffness, or head bobbing. I'm just so glad he was ok....if I had to chose for one of us to get hurt I'd rather it be me because he doesn't deserve it.

me and corkie had a similar moment like this the other day, i was riding him down to the field in just a headcoller bareback, he INSISTED on bolting down the track to his field, wasnt so much of a problem, wasnt slipper as its all drying up because its sunny, but he tripped & went down on his knees, then on to his face then completely down on his side. i fell in front of him & he landed on my arm, luckily he got up pretty quick, i took him back up to the yard & checked him over he was fine, but my arm is really bruised lol

I don't mind riding on grass, but there are a few terrains that scare me more than others, ice, gravel, smooth rock, and deep dust. I have seen horses fall with their riders with my own eyes on the first three and I had a horse fall on top of me losing her balance in deep dusty footing. On all those falls, the horses were okay, but the riders, me included, had some bad (but not permanent or life threatening) injuries.
