This was due to slick ground. It looked great on top but was really slippery underneath.
I kicked out of the stirrups before he got up so I got away with only a big bruise on my right thigh. Shuey is a little sore on his left hind leg and he will be on constant watch to make sure it's nothing serious.
Only a little while earlier, a friend of mine fell with her horse.
She wasn't as lucky as me. As her horse went to get up her leg caught and she slammed her head into the barrel/ground. After that, she dropped to the ground. She went to get up then fell down, unconscious.
I'm being told now that she may have a broken neck or head trauma.
Prayers to Katy.
