We Fell Down and I Blacked Out

I was out on a trail ride with my friend, and our parents were ahead, and we decided we were going to canter up to them. While I was cantering my horse stepped outside of the trail, and her feet swept under her. We fell down, and I blacked out.

I woke up under my horse. She was struggling to get up and while her legs were flailing around, her back leg kick me in the head. I finally was able to get out, and both of us are now fine. I ended up with whiplash and a mild concussion. Luckily I had a helmet on because I could’ve gotten seriously injured or could've even died. 

God bless, and I hope this has showed people what helmets do. -Brooke C.
