OOOH BEAUTY! I haven't had a good shiner like that since I quit slalom racing and quit getting hit in the face with a pole when my timing was off! LOL! Just remember when in public with your BF or hubby, flinch away from him from time to time, just to give folks something to gossip about.

Hope you're feeling better quickly!

Oh gosh, ouch! I've heard a few people say that they're too good to fall off and I always shake my head - here's proof that no matter how experienced you are, you can still end up tasting dirt! In fact, I didn't fall off at all in my early days - because all the horses I'd ridden as a beginner were too well behaved to lose a rider. As soon as I started riding hot stuff and greenies though...bruises galore!

If you've got a partner, I bet he's getting dirty looks from the neighbour LOL. I used to be decorated in bruises from Brock and would joke that he was my abusive husband (and that he was pimping me out so he'd keep getting the best hay and the softest bedding ).

Oh ouch! I used to brag that I have never fallen off a horse and then the darn donkey threw me. Technically, I can still say I have never fallen off a horse. LOL

I could fall off a hobby horse. I think I have, maybe, I just don't remember anymore.

LOL, alas I have no boyfriend or hubby from whom to flinch.

I hate it that I'm going to have to go to the chiro though. Coming into winter and hay prices are making money tight and I really don't want to spend any on myself but I guess I don't have much choice, my shoulder is actually getting worse .

Boo!! Hiss!!! Silly mare to cause me so much grief LOL.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Ouch! Have to agree with tiny, those would make some stellar mugshots, wear it with pride ;) Glad it didn't end up any worse.

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

Chick, I'm jealous of the owners, almost all their horses are purdy....and purdy **** talented too. I'm just happy I get to ride them .


Too bad they are all such bears to train LOL. Once they get past the boogers, they are really nice though.

Oo yes. You're never too experienced to fall off.
Im always conscious of that especially since im riding a gelding who also has that magical ability to spook suddenly without tensing or a warning...
