Falls from great heights

No, I didn't fall off my horse today.

But it wasn't because he didn't try to make me.

I rode out two of the hardest bucks I've ever been on. And I tell you what.

I didn't sign up for the rodeo.

Glad you didnt fall off, but scary!

Leah Fry said...

Bummer. Any idea what set off the rodeo?

Cactus Jack Splash said...

Glad you stayed on. Do you know why your horse decided to have a bucking fit?

Holy moly. More details! Glad you're alright (assuming you are).

Kate said...

Ugh! Wonder what was up (so to speak)?

Velcro. Duct Tape. Inflatable suit for hard landings.

Hang tough.

There must have been something in the air. Panama was a JERK and dumped me twice in one ride, and another boarder and I were talking about how ALL the horses were acting funny. I guess that extends to Texas as well.

Oh, dear. But, you rode them out??...wow!!! There must be something in the air. Gem did a half-hearted head-shaking little buck thing yesterday. Hope you are OK!

I'm so relieved to hear you didn't fall and get hurt, but what's up with Cibolo? What led up to the bucking fit?

Not fun! Glad that you are okay and I can't wait to hear what led up to it.

I think something is in the air too. Bonnie took me for a wild bucking ride on a trail that I ended up bailing off before I was tossed.

I'm so glad you were able to ride it out and stay on! I'm curious too as to what could have caused it...

Did you sign up for the glue factory? Oh that was rude. Is the horse still breathing?

Beth said...

Way to go!! You make not have wanted to join the rodeo, but you successfully competed! I know it sucks but it sounds like you handled it well!

Good for you for staying on! Get his head up if he tries again so that he can't buck! Once they get their head, it can become a real rodeo. I wonder what set him off??
