It was bound to happen with a baby at some point. McKenna dumped me on Saturday. She reared and spun and I didn't. Not too much worse for wear, landed on my butt, but my lower back is not super happy. Luckily she was easy to catch and after quite a bit of lunging I got back on.
We had been trotting around for 10 mins or so and she was high as a kite. I had already lunged her, and I was going back and forth in my head about getting off and lunging some more. She was getting bold down the long side so I went to circle. She protested, I got stronger with my aids, and she went up and sideways. While I was super pissed at the time, I can't really be mad at her. Between the change in weather (getting into the 30s-40s at night), lack of turnout, not being ridden in the outdoor in more than a week, and general baby OTTBness, I should have seen it coming. She might have a trainer ride on Wednesday and we have a lesson on Sunday so hopefully we can get some help.
