1. How old are you?
2. How many years have you been riding?
Gosh, I've been riding on my own (not with an adult in front or behind me) for about 26 years.
3. How often do you ride?
Every day, sometimes all day, on several different horses (I train horses for a living).
4. How many times have you fallen?
Whoo, I lost count somewhere back in my early teens LOL.
5. Funniest fall?
I suppose that depends on who it was funny for...me or the folks watching. I suppose the one I found the funniest was when me and the horse both fell in a great big mud puddle. Thankfully, we were both unhurt...but we ended up being one uniform color. I can't really say what would have been the funniest for others as I don't usually have an audience when I fall.
6. Worst fall?
Hmm, worst by damage or pain? Worst damage happened when I was 9, I came off a horse while loping down a caliche road (he spooked and dodged sideways...I didn't). I shattered my left arm which required 4 screws, 1 pin, and an "external fixator" to get it all mostly put back together again. Worst pain would have to be when I came off a young Arab a little over 3 years ago. I landed just wrong and pinched a nerve in my back. I had to walk almost a mile to catch him...and then ride him the 2 miles back to the barn. That was absolute agony for 3-4 months.
7. Most recent fall?
Um, last October. I was riding a young mare on her first trip outside of the round pen. Something spooked her and she just vanished out from under me (I've never had that happen before). I landed on the point of my right shoulder and the left side of my face. Road rash, cut eyebrow, dislocated collarbone, and 1 broken rib with that particular fall.
