trailrideing by Rachael

I had just gotten a new horse named Sailor and I am an experienced rider. For the past four weeks I had been working on my dressage and jumping. So I thought why not have some fun and do a trail ride with her. So I got one of my friends to go with me on her horse and off we went. On our way back we were walking on the side of the road and the grass ran out so we had to walk on the road (right next to the barn). A huge cement truck vroomed by us coming about 1 foot away from my leg. My horse then freaked out reared up and left me on the ground running back to the barn. I got a small concussion and a broken arm. Thanks to my helmet I was able to not have a serious head injury.
