Wednesday night riding lessons turned into rodeo night. Katy took a fall from Stan during her lesson session resulting in an inch long gash to the side of her noggin. She meet up with Stan’s hoof on her way to the arena floor. Apparently she did everything that she had been taught to do correctly but sometimes horses will not do exactly what you tell them to. Thankfully she wasn’t hurt any worse than she was.

She did get back on before the lesson was over. She did inform me that at least she didn’t break her pelvis…smart ass at nine!

Theresa took her to the emergency room. They stapled the wound shut. Katy tells me that it didn’t hurt except for the doctor picking at her hair and poking around in it to clean it out.

    Oh, I can see now that kid is going to have a SHARP sense of humor! Glad she was not hurt badly. Lord, we fell off, was thrown off, knocked off etc. horses so much when we were kids it’s a wonder we were not hurt seriously but we were tough, as it seems your litle Katey is.

    The worrying is the worst part. I’m glad she is ok and got back on.As for the smart ass thing, what is that saying? “The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree…

    I guess falling off horses is in the family. Glad she is ok and still has her sass about her.

    I was bucked off a horse once. That was the last time I’ve ever ridden a horse. I still don’t miss it.
