So I get to the barn today to ride my new guy silver for the second time since he arrived on Thursday, and decide to ride without waiting for my trainer, even though we found out yesterday that Silver is not a fan of our big wooden mounting block (don't think he's ever seen anything like it before). So I bring him down to the arena with my boyfriend, and lunge him for a couple of minutes just to see where his energy level was. He was great on the lunge so I decided to get on, his eyes bugged out as soon as we walked over to the block and I made him stop and stand and walk on and come back to the block and stop and stand a few times and he was good and I think we would have been just fine, but stupid me somehow managed to kick him in the butt when I got on (something that I NEVER do!!!) And he spooked went forward and bucked, I had no feet in the stirrups, and no prayer of staying on. Landed hard on my right hip and I'm going to have a super pretty bruise there tomorrow, it definitely hurts a lot but I can walk so I don't think anythings broken.
I am not at all mad at Silly, it was entirely my fault!! Everyone has to fall off their new horse eventually right? I just got it done early on haha! My trainer is going to work with him on the mounting block tomorrow and tuesday and I have a lesson on him on Wednesday!!
