There's the silver lining -- I bought Dollar site unseen. An impulse buy (something I never do). He's perfect in sooo many ways. Sweet, loving, affectionate, sound, beautiful, great mover, tall, thick, and handsome. He's definitely been trained to do a lot.. however I'm having so much difficulty with the basics. Last Saturday, we were riding, and the saddle slipped to the left. I fell off, and really injured my ribs, and hip. So now I'm barely able to ride.. and when I do, I'm afraid of falling again. :(

If you are injured get well first, then ride, no rush. One step at a time, go enjoy him, do ground work, there are a million thing sthat you can be doing with him so you guys can get to know each other better.

Why did your saddle slip, maybe you need to check the fit, work on getting it cinched up properly, all sorts of thing sto do and check.

Remember this isn't a race, you can go at your own pace, the trick with gaining confidence isn't always just getting on and doing it, it is starting in your comfort zone then pushing it a little further each day.

That's what my fiance says. lol. I'm crazy for trying to get back in the saddle. But we've been working on a lot of walking.. gaining confidence with each other.. and concentrating on understanding that my leg on his side does not mean charge forward.

He's a very sweaty horse. More so than I've ever experienced with any other horse. That day, we were riding outside.. It was pretty hot, he was sweaty.. and I should have tightened up the girth before cantering around. We made a slightly tight right turn, and my body shifted to my left stirrup, and the saddle slipped to the side. I went down and hit the rail and ground. All while being video taped. lol.
