Havoc bucked me off . Couldn't believe it.
How many swear words can you fit in between horse and floor - quite a few!
He'd had a couple of days off due to a cut leg, and was ridden the day before, so wasn't too fresh.
We had just had a lovely well behaved ride round our field, listening to me and trotted over some trotting poles beautifully (new thing for him - until recently he always leapt the lot in one go)
So decided a little canter up the field to finish off. Started great, got a little fast, so asked him to trot - no way - yanked the reins, head down and off I flew. Landed on my back, bruised my pelvis and got knocked out. When I got up, he was grazing , watching me.
So now I've pulled something in my groin - hurts to walk, so won't be riding for a while. Annoying as he's been going so well lately.
So now I'm looking at back protectors, and a new hat.
And Havocs having more time off, can't even do ground work as it hurts !
Oh well, at least I've got the excuse to go shopping at saddlery places - and drool over what I cant afford! (and probably spend too much anyway!)
