I Was At A Pretty Fast Canter

It was a normal day and I was out riding my mayor which I had had for four months. I was riding around my barn at a pretty fast canter.

I was a beginner rider so she was kind of like my bulletproof horse. My foot came out of the stirrup and my head hit the side of the barn. But with my helmet on, I only got a slight headache.

It could’ve been way worse because I hit the corner of the barn which is super, super dangerous. If I didn’t have that helmet on, I probably would’ve had to have stitches.
