Well - I'm still here - alive and kicking - not injured or in hospital or anything dramatic like that. To be fair to the mare she was as good as gold in the circumstances - never put a foot wrong in fact. I had to enlist the help of a fellow livery client to help me get her out of the stable - he was on standby just in case she had an eppy - but in fact wasn't needed. He also agreed to stay whilst I rode just in case she bucked me off and an ambulance was required.... but none of it was necessary. She did do a bit of snorting and blowing and craning her neck - it didn't help that she could hear another horse jumping in the outdoor school just on the other side of the wall - but apart from that she was a diamond.
I've said it before and I'll say it again - I absolutely love my horse :)
