3. Almost every day in the summer, 3-4x during school year, 2x during winter.
4. About 10ish
5. I was coming back from a trail ride and my horse started to get a little antsy because he knew we were going home. So I did what I was taught and I made him do little circles, well this horse had a history of bloating when I would put a saddle on. So while we did the circles the saddle slipped to the side and I just fell off. I swear that horse just turned to me and started to laugh...I 'kid you not.
6. (The same horse that I mentioned above) I was on a trail ride with some friends. We were coming home and while we did so I kinda noticed that the girl who was riding the Quarter Pony didn't have much control over her. However I didn't say much about it and was being my cocky self back then, so the group decided we would just canter home---doing so in a controlled way. Well the horse just bolted out of control and did a be-line to the barn. What we were running on was the grass-side of the street, between the street and the grassy area was a ditch. Then there was a bridge connecting the grassy side, across the ditch, to the road. While the horse ran, I stupidly decided to chase after the horse. The horse made a sharp turn to the bridge and my last thought was, "Oh ****..." My horse tried to turn onto the bridge sharply but his back left leg slipped off the bridge and sent us creaming into the street with him on top of me. That was NOT fun. Nor was it worth it. This was in July 2009ish.
7. Sometime in June/July/August in 2011. I was riding a horse that was pretty new to me. He was very jumpy at the show arena and I couldn't really get him focused on me. As we turned the corner in the arena something caught the horse's eye and he spooked and bucked me off. I was completely caught off guard and started to cry not because it hurt, mainly because every living soul that God created saw what happened and was watching me. That scared me more than the initial buck, LOL.
