When life gets rough, land somewhere soft...

Sometimes it just doesn't matter what you do.

You could be doing everything right, 
but someone or something decides to change your plans.
Everything comes to a screeching halt...

Everything goes topsy-turvy...
and hopefully, you have a soft place to land.


No I don't have a picture of the landing,
because by that time I had the camera down and was busy checking on my baby,
who did have a soft place to land 
and only her pride and maybe her confidence was injured.
But she thinks the pictures are funny.

You caught an amazing moment! Where else would you be after the fall but making sure she was OK :) Glad to know she was. I'm so jealous you get to play with horsies...I love them!

Awesome captures! Really glad she's okay, too. But these are great memories. :)

Great job capturing this! You can totally see the horse "putting on it's breaks" in that second shot.

I love the story these photos tell, and am glad your daughter had a soft place to land.

Very clear shots of a event that I'm sure made your heart stop just a little.

Yikes! I am scared to even sit on a horse and be led by someone, so I would be freaking out just watching that. Glad she had a soft place to land. :)

How on earth did you handle that? My heart stopped just looking at the pics..and the oddest thing is that I only saw the very first picture and thought "wow, must be nerve wracking to watch your child ride..." and then the other pics came. Glad she's okay!
