Cracked Helmet by Jayme

I had just bought a nice little arabian gelding. I was very inexperienced and he was in a new barn. I got on him and he bolted. After a long and terrifying ride, he turned abruptly at a stock fence and I kept going. I don't remember hitting my head, but my helmet was cracked just above my brainstem area. It took me about a year to regain my confidence. Now, my little arabian gelding is about the best companion you could ever want. BUT, I ALWAYS WEAR MY HELMET.
