Day of firsts....

So, today was a day of firsts for me...
First ride with my nifty new to me saddle...
First time getting chased by a thunderstorm...
First fall off my horse....ugh
Glad we were alreadyback at the ranch.
I hopped off to open the gate for my honey, e went through, and I closed it up.
Went to get back on, the saddle rolled, and it rolled right as I was swinging my leg over to mount.
Down I went, flat on my shoulder and riblets...
I have a feeling this is going to hurt in the morning...

Wish you had gotten that on film. I need a good chuckle. Hope you are not sore tomorrow. That's a pretty tame fall , if you ask me. Counts for "free chiropractic" to me.

How's the saddle?

I always have to check my cinch when I remount. My darling little Princess blows herself up as big as she can so that the saddle stays nice and loose. When I go to remount, it will turn every time if I don't tighten it. I hope you are ok. If you ride, you eventually hit the dirt. Dust yourself off and call yourself a real cowboy.

I think your little princess learned that trick from The Biscuit Man!

Let's see that new to you saddle and so sorry you banged up the riblets. OMG that must have smarted like all get out. LOL The injuries we get with horses and we brush them off like the guys in Monty Python's "it is just a flesh wound" when his arm is cut off!!!

Gravity is alive and well - I pitched off of Biscuit in Louisiana in March...ahahahah landed flat on my back on a little rotten stump (thank God it was rotten!!) I just got back on - Biscuit looking at me like I was dumber than dirt!!

Mine likes to suck wind too so I check and recheck his cinch. Unfortunately it looks like he's learned a new trick. Blow up each and every time I go check it, here last weekend I checked 3 time over 10 minutes before mounting and it was tight each time. Of course soon as I stepped in the stirrup my saddle rolled on me. Darn smart horses!

I can usually get her to exhale and breathe normally, as I check her after we play in the round pen before we ride.
I checked her today, twice.
Ah, lesson learned....

Well, you need to invest in a new one now.

Amazing how we get attached to odd things, isn't it?
Brings to mind that Chris Ledoux song.....
