Hmmmm never had a falll that sent me to the e.r. but ill list the falls most lame to the most amazing.
#1-this was my first fall... i think i was 5.... riding a little pony for pony rides at a fair...saddle slipped...i slipped...and down i went:)
#2-this was my 3rd fal...11 years old... i was riding at camp and w were on a trail. i took off my stirrups to strethch my legs during a break and Belle started to run...i held on but then she sidestepped and down i went:)
#3- my 2nd fall... 10 yrs old... i was riding a huge, old horse wih arthritis (Cadenza) and we were doing a jump course. well because of his arthritis he goes SUPER fast around turns and so he went around and broke into a gallop...i tried to pull him out, afraid of him getting hurt by going so fast but no such luck. he went over and i fell on his neck...next jump i pulled my self uop and leaned as far back ass possible, to no avail. it was time to choose a direction and pull him out of the jump. i chose right. he chose left. we boh got our way:) i landed on the wall but got up and was all "Boo-yah! first fall while jumping! YAH!" yeah i was a strange child...:)
#4- my 5th fall... just yesterday (14) ... so as some of you may know i recently aquired a green broke paint gelding.... yesterday i was riding over a course in a monthly lesson... well we were going over a weird course and my trainer had been screaming at me the whole lesson to lean back... i didnt listen. jumping over the 3"3 just after ground work and my trainer put down a ground pole aftr the jump so i couldnt turn early....hehe well that scared rrowdy ("OH MY GOD WHY IS THERE A POLE?????? WHERE DID IT COME FROM?!?!?!?!?!!? AHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!") and he jumped like a 4 foot feence then started to do what i have dubbed "The Bad Pony", crow hop, buck, shaking, and rearing all rolled into one spectacular move. usuallay i can get him to stop but he was bucking higher than ever and, despite my trainers efforts, i was too far forward. down i went, landing on by back then scraping my helmet against the wall:) rowdy was all "Oh skylar! guess what??? it was just a pole!!! i protected you though, right?" haha goood one. got right back on and had a pretty good lesson after that, minus a few spooks and bolts:) he finally got me off...i knew it was gonna happen soon:)
#5- my 4th fall...12 3/4 yrs old... i was riding my lease horse Chief and we were cantering around the lanes with a few friends down by the paddock...he started bucking. i cgot him under control no big deal. but after i ride i go barback and i took him intothe outdoor arena. i didnt expect to stay longer than one lap around so i didnt shut the gate behind me... somethin spooked him i guess, or maybe he was just ready to be done, but either way, he bolted. i want hanging on and fell off. he galloped off towards his pasture about a quarter mile away, and i chased him. my friends went after him on their horses but were afrai tio get too close and step on his reins so they just sorta followed him:) he stopped a his pasture gate and when i ran up, looked at me like "Hey there. what took ya so long?" the fall itself hurt my tailbone, but no actual damage. i count this as my worst fall mostly because i had to go all that way to grab him:)
Other horse related disasters: stepped on by a runayway horse, breaking oll the toes on my right foot, nearly fell off a clff, electrocuted by the fence when a horse shover me into it, bitten in the neck, kicked in the thigh, dragged down the isle, run over. yay me!:)
