Believe me - it look like a year to heal. I had a huge knot on my leg forever.....I think this happened in 2006.
Next was March of 2007...We were at KC Ranch....www.kcranchalabama.com which is my favorite place to horse camp and we go there often. A few of us had got together and went, we got there on Friday early afternoon and decided to hit the trail. After about an hour we all stopped to let the horses drink at the bottom of a hill. I was relaxed letting Dixie drink - had my feet out of the stirrips and all of a sudden - everyone else took off up the hill - full speed. Dixie freaked out, and spun around to take off. Well it almost slung me off, but I recouped - then she took off and when she did I got off balance again....Well not good - there was a tree...I hit it smack on my right eye, it knocked me off the horse, knocked me out - I had a seizure (small).....Bear came to the rescue, smacked me in my face and woke me up. All was fine...(????). I got on my horse and rode sideways back to camp. A few of the gang had already ridden fast back to camp and called the paramedics, when we got to camp - they were ready to check me out....however, I was not....I tee-teed in my pants so was major embarrassed so I headed to the trailer first. LOL. I felt I was fine and refused to go to the hospital, but cannot for the life of me remember anything about that weekend......(this is just what I was told)
Here is right after the accident and then the next morning. By the way - I rode the next day.
Scarey looking huh?
This is Dixie....and by the way - both accidents happened while riding her. Although neither was her fault.
All is well, I am kinda used to it. I am pretty sure I had a concussion, as I already had one the year before - coming off a horse.....it was pretty much the same feeling....Bear checked on me all night and I was fine.....like I said rode the next day - I just don't remember it...LOL
Last accident was this past summer and I do not have photo evidence, but was walking down a hill and Jag stepped his right front foot into a 12" hole. I just went off the left side, tried to hold onto his neck and not hit the ground, but I was pulling him down on top of me, so I let go so he could get out of the hole and I hit the ground, face and shoulder first.....ouch...I have a scar from that one.....
OK - now I have to tag 3 others.....and I am so new at this - I don't really know so here goes...Please don't kill me....LOL
Sorry ya'll, but I love reading your blogs....if that means anything.
OK - now someone tell me how to let them know they have been tagged.....
