I Never Even Got On
Never even got on... I was mounting my 21 year old thoroughbred whom I have owned for 18 years. Normally he is rock solid for mounting but today something spooked him and he bolted with me half on. I was thrown backward landing on my head and back. Other then numerous bruises, scrapes, and a slight headache I got up and walked away. In my entire riding career of 33 years this is the worst accident I ever experienced. Thank goodness for my Troxel helmet!
