I have yet to hit the dirt that hard *knocks on wood* but i also was a teenager who got back up and got back on. the soreness will go away soon though. my worst fall was after a jump. she planted her feet and i went flying. that one hurt.

Don't worry, everyone will fall off every now and again... riding a horse is not just about knowing how to stay on, but how to fall off also. Just last Monday I was riding a horse at my job and I was riding english for the second time (I am a western rider) and the horse took off and threw his head down to buck, I lost my stirrup and flew over his head... I had a bump on my chin and was very sour... but that is just about riding... and actually 2 days before, on a friday, i was out trail riding and was thrown from my horse (I was riding western) when he bucked and spun around 2 times...

I can garanttee you that if you want a career in horses, you will be taking more falls, and it is fine if you get right back up again.

The dizziness can be a sign of concussion. It can get worse if not treated. Please go get your head checked out.
I have experienced the loss of a friend about 6 days after a concussion because no one questioned his short temper at work, and unusual quietness and he didn't want to worry his wife. (he kept saying he was fine, no problem) No one ever imagined it could have such devastating results.

Holy Moly there are guided trail rides with cantering? They must have great liability insurance.

About ... 80% of them falls I pop up and dust myself off. Only once or twice was I left no the ground dizzy and struggling to get up. I must be lucky!!

Sky, I generally do the same thing, even if I'm hurt. Too many years spent working around cattle and green horses...fall off and stay on the ground to get your bearings, you're likely to get trampled by one or more critters LOL.

There have been a few times, though, where I landed just right and could not get even one atom of this good Texas air. That's the most panicky feeling ever.

I don't know why I'm talking in such a weird way.. I meant to say "80% of my falls

~~

I agree on the panicky feeling.. also with jumping up as to avoid being trampled!

LOL, I didn't even notice your grammar twitch, I just sort of read it as a "southernism". There are lots of folks in my area that talk like that all the time. I'm even guilty of it from time to time.
