not the horses fault

Hi and good luck with your healing both inside and outside you are very lucky young lady and yes very brave to have the feelings for the horse that you do .i hope someday you will step up in a saddle againand beleve you will but take your time go slow and easy. you are right it wasnt the horses fault it was a classic accident case, only one you lived to tell everyone what you felt at the time. the way you have stated it i do know you will ride again and i hope the horse isnt held responsable for the axccident . i can not count the times ive been hurt while rideing and they all seem to be some kind of short sitedness on my part looking back on years in the saddle ive learned a lot and still do some dum stuff while i ride it is a dangerous sport but one that some of us are called to do no matter what the danger is as with my self im free when im on the back of my horse and can only wait till the next time i can get on. I wear a very harsh back brace when i ride and with out it i can not stand the pain in my back . ive just which to TWH do to the smooth ride but still have 2 mustangs and a qt horse that i ride at least 4 times a week just cant seem to stop ridein and will take the pain for the freedom and love i have of horses im 60yr old sunday and hope to be rideing when i turn 80 god bless you and keep your love of the horse it is as no other Dave

I think that your posting this is the best thing you could have ever done. Not only does it release you but it reminds the rest of us that we are human and that we can make mistakes, that most of the time it's really truely isn't the horses fault. It reminds us that accidents are what they are....accidents. I hope that you are able to ride again. Sometimes you can learn from accidents and it will make you a better person all around. I think that by the fact that you have laid this out for hundreds of people to read you have already made a big leap into healing. Good Luck.

P.S. remember one step at a time goes a long way to the finish.
