So today in my jumping lesson we were doing a few bounces and then turning the corner to a single jump, then turning again to another jump and then 7 strides to the last one. Well we did the bounces and the first canter jump pretty good and then we got to the second one and I don't have a good eye for distances yet and this mare jumps long, so put that together, and we ended up with a super long spot that I was not prepared for and I went up on my toes then over her neck and I was hanging on for dear life so she wouldnt step on me as she was cantering away. I fell off and landed on my side or back I can't remember which and I got up and I couldn't breathe, I was standing there like gasping for air so I took a few minutes to get my breathing back to normal and then we made sure my ribs were ok and everything. I got back on and finished the lesson. So long story short, my whole chest cavity is really sore, and breathing ouches a bit but not that bad. So is it normal to feel those things after a fall like that. Also, when we were done, my friends said that from the side it looked like she was going to trample me! So thank god that didn't happen the only thing that happened was her front leg brushed my arm!
