If memory serves me correctly (it all happened so fast), I used one rein (on her right) to keep her from totally taking off and grabbed onto her mane, she spun around, I got a little off balance and while trying to keep her from taking off and trying to stay on, I think I may have kicked her in the side and thus, she moved farther from me to the left and in a motion that felt like slow motion, I fell to the ground (and was able to think suring that moment, oh boy, I am going off, that's gonna hurt) and Lola took off to the other horses. My two biggest concerns were not letting her take off with me on her and not being trampled. (I had a helmet.) I was not hurt, not really (although I will be sore--I hit primarily on the left side of my butt), however I was angry, at Rick, because I told him not five minutes before that there was a chance they'd spook and that he should wait. He said he would but then, apparently he thought that since he was not driving past us that it was okay (not aware of the amount of commotion he was making, period). Now my horses are fairly spook free but, they are horses and they all were a bit edgy today (perhaps the weather front coming in, they are in need of exercise, who knows, they are prey animals when you come right down to it).
