From Stephanie

In case you missed it, this was in the comments from the Stephanie:

Aww, thank you guys so much for all the warm wishes. I think Cibolo needs more hugs than me right now, it sounds like he's pretty mopy!

It's funny, but I think he and I will come out closer for it in the end, given all the time we'll be spending on the ground and at slower paces in saddle.

It really tells you a lot about a horse when you see their reaction after a fall, and also the importance of getting right back on. I think Cibolo really knows it was a bad fall because I wasn't right back up afterwards. And I don't think I've ever seen him acting more concerned and upset (even regarding late meals).

Thanks everybody, we'll keep you updated!

I was once prostrate on the gravel road. Looking up at God! When out of the blue, a horse muzzle swept over my face.
Out popped a warm wet tongue, and then hot breath, "Hello? Are you going to be long, only there is the rest of the ride to do!" She said.

I never knew horses could talk, or was it my concussion?

Hope you are back int he saddle soon....

I agree you can tell a lot about a horse by how they react when you get hurt. Cibolo has certainly proved he deserves to be loved by you.

Now you have the right to claim the title "Queen of the Rodeo". Gotta love those teleportation moves.

I agree... they know when it's bad. They also know we shouldn't be flying from the saddle. So glad you were not more seriously hurt and ready to be back in the saddle!
