I am really annoyed at myself. I saddled my horse up yesterday and led her through a fence with only a small clearance for her to get through. One stirrup leather got stuck on the fence and the gate swung and gave her a fright. She pulled back so much that the whole saddle actually slipped over her head!!! I had the girth tightened and everything. She made such an awful groaning noise - she seems OK now, but I will keep an eye on her in case she did some damage to herself. In the process the saddle came over her head and she stepped on it - she froze and wouldn't get off it. So, I'll have to have that looked at to - it bent the stirrup bar, but I think that's all. I wish I had been more careful, as she is a very trusting horse and would have followed me through anything and now I'm worried that she will be damaged by the experience.
