    I'm guessing it was Mom holding the video camera? 'cause it got dropped to the ground at the moment of dismount. Anyone else would have kept filming!

    BTW, seriously impressed with how long you stuck with your horse.
    pace, path, balance, impulsion and ??

    I fell off my mare the other day and my boyfriend filmed the whole thing. It is interesting to see it from a different perspective.

    Sit back, shorten your reins, feet firmly in stirrups!

    hahah i knoww right when i watched the video that was the first thing i said, "why'd you stop filming??" but thankss i usually can stay with him when he throws silliness at me but the rapid change of direction is what got me i think haha. and koniucha, you should share your video. unless it's like super traumatizing.
