Here at HN, we are an equal opportunity appreciator of thrills and spills because both are a part of riding. Today’s “Oh $h!t” moment is brought to you by reader Sally Rumph.
Man, Sally, that was such a nice round until it wasn’t, right? Didn’t see that coming. I’m glad both you and your horse were OK, if maybe a little stunned. I like the way your horse gets up and walks back over to the jump, like, what just happened? Kind of reminds me to those Tears for Fears lyrics:
Something happens and I’m head over heels/
I never find out till I’m head over heels/
Something happens and I’m head over heels…
Sally, thank you for sharing your “Oh $h!t” moment and good luck in the future! It’s a Horse Nation tradition to dedicate a song to the fallen–this one goes out to you.
Go Riding, and try not to fall off if you can help it.
