How falling off horse: it is not a good topic but, if you ride, you know very well that, unfortunately, sooner or later it happens.
How falling off horse is one of our suggestions but if you want, you can suggest us a advice that you would like to read on this page. Thanks.
So it’s better to know first how to fall off your horse than later.
They will be perhaps banal rules but it is better to remember them.
How Falling off Horse. Our advices
First and foremost you should never mount without the protective equipment. A cap can really save your life.
A pair of jeans and a long-sleeved jacket will protect your arms and legs from low branches, which could scratch, or avoid peeling for a fall on rough terrain.
When you understand that you are about to fall, look for soft ground to land on: it is much better to fall on sand, earth or grass than on rocks or gravel!
Don’t resist, take your feet off the stirrups, leave the reins so you don’t get carried away and, while you fall, don’t stiffen up.
Keep your legs as soft as you can and resist the temptation to stretch your arms to cushion your fall: you’ll only get a broken bone.
The more relaxed the body is, the better the landing will be.
When you fall, try to jump as far as possible from the horse so as not to risk ending up under his hooves.
The ideal would be to land on the feet, bend the knees as soon as you touch the ground and then curl up and roll away from the horse to repair the vital organs, protecting the neck and head with the arms.
But above all, do not stand up immediately but begin to move your fingers, arms, legs and, above all, your neck to see if there are any injuries.
After a fall don’t stop riding and of course don’t take these tips as the only truth but talk to your instructor.
We have come to the end of this topic and we hope that our advice will never serve you.
