: I am an active person, I ride my horse, enjoy taekwondo, go to college, write, and read. I love my horse and he's a 14 year old gelding and was faily skittish in his younger days, but his fears only peek up out of his calm exiterier rarely now. As much as I love my horse and believe myself a skilled rider, I can't explain how I haven't fallen off him more often. I should have had at least one injure more then a bruise, I should have fallen off this most recent time, but I didn't. All I can seem to remeber is him swerving and starting to slide to the left exspecting to be looking up at him any second, but it almost felt like something pulled my back squarly on his back. I didn't feel any pressure, nor did I feel pain, I just know I should have fallen, but I didn't. I'm asuming that this and occasions in taekwondo where things could have been a lot worse is because some overworked but diligent angle has been watching my back and trying to keep me intact. So I thank them, whatever their name is.
