oops - I forgot the funniest part of the story!

Oh my goodness! In all my excitement about the trail and my ride on Rocky on my earlier post this morning I forgot to say that I fell off! Not off Rocky, but it was a pretty wicked fall - off the mounting block!!!! I was using Jen's two step mounting block to get on Rocky bareback. We turned the block on its edge to make it higher and it wasn't too stable. The block slipped out from under me and I slid completely under Rocky's belly!!! He just stood there perfectly quiet wondering what kind of goofball was going to ride him. And, two men were on the roof cleaning Jen's chimney so I am sure they got quite a giggle out of the whole scene. Thankfully, Rocky was a super sweet horse through it all!


  1. Oh goodness! Thankfully you weren't hurt and I would be super embarrased! I am glad that my horses are all on the shorter side so I don't need a mounting block.

  2. OMG I've had a fall off the mounting block and was left far more bruised than a horse back fall!
    That trail is BEAUTIFUL and how fun of a discovery and new friends! HOORAH :):)

  3. What a good horse to stay so still with a flailing human underneath him! Hee hee! I am glad you are not hurt, but it does make got a good story! Lots of giggles over here.
