PumpkinzMyBaby22 and I Fall Off Together - Caught On Camara (Video Uploaded)
 
Hey

Jalah And I - Stacking It In Style on Vimeo

Jalah and I fall off together, but first I fall off trotting bareback on Chinga from losing my balance. Jalah and I fell off from....well its sorta clear if you watch the video. At the end when I'm laying on the ground I'm laughing.

Jalah or I were not hurt apart from I got winded and had a bit of a headace for a while. But now we both are perfectly fine! The qoute at the start is a qoute from a friend, she said it to me one day after I was telling her about my "epic" fall. We both now have an obsession with Star Fish and will probs not be riding double up for a while!

No Rude Comments Thanks,
Maddie,

That was the funniest thing iv'e ever seen. Sorry but that really was funny.

Maddie - well the horse loves you that for sure.
A carefully chosen spot. Nice sandy soil. Three bucks and your off.
Then he stands close by, still, waiting for you to get back on board.
A gentleman but for sure the devil knew exactly what he was doing.

Just watch that head ache.

I don't know what to say - except - the horse is probably going to to it again so show this video to your horse tutor.

Why were there two girls on Chinga asking him to trot?

And you weren't laughing.

I'm sorry but you were plain being stupid and irresponsible.

That's a little harsh. The horse should have trotted with two people when asked. It looked to me like they hadn't time to ask for much of anything. If young girls can't act stupid then who can?

This I agree with, absolutely! I've done stupider in my day..

Anyways, there is a reason that one shouldn't ride double on a horse - towards the lower back of a horse (just before the hip, it's called the lumbar spine) there are some vertebrae that have stiff transverse processes on it. To sit there can be quite painful to the horse, and heaven forbid you injure those transverse processes.

See the bottom image, on the bottom right of that picture, the long almost rib-like things that stick out of the vertebrae? Those are called transverse processes, they are highlighted in green in the top image. That's what you sit on and aggravate when you ride double.

I'm sorry, but that was kind of funny.

I remember when I was little and one of my friend's boyfriends decided to hop on behind me on my little Shetland mare; well, one buck and he bounced right off the back end; she stopped after he was off! Yes, she knew what she was doing alright!

Thanks for the pic, JDI...I don't ride double much, but that gives me more of a reason not too!Lol! People just don't realize you can hurt a horse putting extra weight back there.

Thanks guys, no more double up for a while (Well for ever actully). We didn't ask for the trot, we asked for the walk. As for the laughing it was a mix of laughing and crying.

Barry G - Funny that, when I fell off the first time I ended up in a prickle patch (My own fault). But when he gets us off we are in the sand. We were saying how we landed in the sand as well. As for showing this video to my horse riding instructor, she is use to my "stunts" (standing on his back, bareback, teaching him tricks) so she will proberly expect nothing less from me.

ChingazMyBoy 09-25-2009 06:57 PM

Just like to add to my last post (post 8) that both falls were our/my fault. Chinga did nothing wrong, well he did something wrong. But it wasn't his fault, he wanted as off.

The video was pretty funny. Both of you were in riding position till you hit the ground
