It was just a freak accident, where my horse spooked at a competition during xc because of a loose horse.
We were in the middle of take off for a telephone pole oxer and a loose horse practically ran right up our hind end.... Caused for an ugly jump! :( Justin was okay, just really shook up.... I was the one who ended up being injured.
Didn't take me long to get back in the saddle though, because prior to our incident, Justin went beautifully xc!! Very honest (like always). And since, he has still gone beautifully xc.... Still gets a little worried, but I'm just there for him 2x more.... And any reassurance from me gives him the heart of a lion.... Not to toot our own horn, but we really do make a good pair!!!
I take it as a freak thing.....
BTW, the other rider was not hurt, she just got bucked off after a jump and the horse (being a hot eventer) took a tour of the course I guess.
Gallop as if you'll die tomorrow, jump as if you'll live forever.
