“Anne” fell off the horse while practicing for Chaleuy Suk
Khaosod: June 17, 2009
“I’m worried about horseback riding because I just fell off a horse (laughs)” said Anne Thongprasom who told us after we asked her about some of the things she’s worried about for the lakorn Chaleuy Suk.
“I fell off while practicing riding on a horse name Wonderful, he’s a male and he’s very big. The first time I fell, I felt numb all over so my instructor told me not to get up, so I didn’t. A while later, I was able to get up, but as it turns out, the muscles in my leg was inflamed for 2 weeks.
“Right now I’m a bit afraid but I have to keep fighting. For me, I want to win too, I want to control him. I have to know how to ride more smoothly because the role of Khun Ying Alisa in this lakorn is very experienced in horseback riding. I have to watch a movie called Australia because the nang’ek is very good riding horses, so I’ll have some inspiration and it does really help. Although, when I have to gallop roughly, I need to use a stand-in because in the lakorn, I have to gallop and fight with a tiger, which I can’t do. I still have a lot of practicing to do but someone told me that after you fell off a horse, you’ll get better, so I hope it’ll be like that (laughs). If getting hurt gives me something back in return, then I’m willing to do it.”
You said that you had muscle inflammation, how is it now?
“For the first two days, I went to see a traditional doctor for them to massage my muscles and nerves, but it was very inflamed that they can’t massage so I massage with a bag of heated medicinal herbs instead. I couldn’t run and had to walk slowly because the inflammation was on the inside part of my leg. I couldn’t even spread my legs that much because it hurts a lot, so I tried to heal myself for 2 weeks before it gotten better. I don’t think there’s any long term effects just a few bruises and scratches around the area I fell on.”
