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!
