Most painful: I was riding a colt, his last week before going home. He had been perfect the whole time, calm, responsive. So I decided to take him in the pasture not being used and play in the water on the hot day. He was doing great, until the mud monster grabbed his foot. He spun around and crow hopped a bit. I didn't pull up because he hesitated like he was done. Then he took off bucking harder than I have ever felt. I stayed on for 6-7 good leaps, then he got me off on the only section of that pasture that wasn't wet. It was the hard as rock dirt I dread landing on. Instant pain in my hip, worst pain I have ever felt. I thought it was broke. I was about 300 yards from where I left my phone so I had to make it over there to get help. I laid there for about 20 minutes, then very slowly got up. The second I put weight on my right leg my vision went white and I almost passed out. So I would walk a few steps until I thought I would pass out, then lay down and rest. It took me another half hour of this to get to my phone. Glad to say it wasn't broken. I now just get stiff and sore in the.mornings when I get up. That was the most painful, and scariest fall of my life.
