Re: Worst horse fall
Haha, I'm only 13 and I've already fallen off more times than I can count XD
My worst fall was in October 2010, we hacked safely about a mile or two down country lanes to some fields, where we went for a canter. I thought it would be okay, but I didn't like the ground as it was kind of funny and muddy and bumpy and wierd. When we got into the second-to-last field, we could see the gap in the hedge where we had to go through. By the time we had got to the hedge, we were still galloping (Note- the pony I was on had no brakes unless all the others stopped too, and he was 15. Ish.). Before I knew it, I was coming up to this hedge and I could see a ditch right on the hedge line. I tried to stop , but I had no luck, and by then it was too late. I must have blacked out, because I don't remember anything, but from what I can gather, this is what happened.
Jasper Trips. My useless unconcious body falls face first onto floor. Jasper does a front flip. Lands on me. Runs off. I remeber waking up, major pain in my back and face.
And astonishingly, the worst thing that happened was a nose bleed.
