When I was a teenager I had a few friends with horses. It didn't seem to matter how many times I fell off a horse, I always got back on. lol The worse fall I had was when I was riding bareback and following my friend, Billie Jo. Now, Billie Jo owned horses and would compete, I did not. On this day my parents had told me not to go riding, just take a break from it. But why???
So, after I get to Billie Jo's house we jump on the horses and go for a ride. She and her horse took off down the dirt road, made a right turn and jumped a ditch. My horse and I followed, making the same turn, jumping the same ditch, but then I fell off the left side...not good! Off to the ER! I had pulled ligaments in my arm. Lots of pain and lots of physical therapy! To this day I still wake up, from time to time, with my arm feeling like a tight rubber band and I have to work it out slowly. I sure wish I had taken that day off from riding. :)
Do you have any similar regrets?
