View Full Version : Great footing!!!!

I know we are so concerned about footing , it is sooooo important for our horses.

But I decided after going flying like a cannon ball sideways saddle and all we
should think about ourselves too!

I was in a lesson - private thank goodness and I was coming around a left turn and I thought why am I so in the right stirrup and fling I go .
My Girth broke.
It was one of the humane girths and it broke from the elastic to the metal ring.
For a moment I laid in the dirt laughing . But now I realize what could have and I am soooo thankful I was the only one in the ring. My trusty pony is only 17h's and he just stood like " Ma what are you doing now" . I have had this horse for 7 years and this is my 1st real fall . One time I did but I landed on my feet from a refusal I caused.
THe arena dirt was soft -- THank Goodness!!
Please double Check your tack!!!!!!! Always wear a helmet.
