I love the story!!!!!! The picture was priceless.
Anyone else care to share one????
I have a Mustang X and hes a spirited boy. Hes 11 years old, 14HH and I just love him dearly. He needs a firm hand with at the minimum an intermediate rider. I was in the field we always ride in and came up to the apple tree he loves to trot past and then break into a nice canter. At the Canter part I truly dont know what went wrong. New saddle he had on? The brown blur I THINK I saw out of the corner of my eye? My off balance rein yank that hit "wolf teeth" we didnt know he still had??????? But it all went kinda like this. Rough start to a canter, jump sideways, I fell sideways, reins snapped tight then this surreal rocking motion,,,OMG HES BUCKING,,,,,then came the sudden stop. That would be me hitting the ground. Oh the pain. Bloody nose, massive bruising on my pelvis (not a nice place to have a HUGE bruise), the scraped up knees I must have landed on. I laid there for a split second before jumping up and looking around to see if my BF saw it. He didnt. My horse came RUNNING to me as soon as he saw me get up,,,looking for a nuzzle. I slowly walked to the barn, took the new saddle off, put my old tried and true saddle on and went for a slow walk around to let him know that if you throw me I will still get back on. Worst and longest ride of my life, I couldnt wait to get home.
Im 45 yo, seems like the gorund was a bit harder than I remember it ever being.
Thank you for your FACEPLANT story!
