FG, just a little friendly advice, I would hope the next time you talk a child into shooting a weapon especially a muzzleloader, you would consider their fears and concerns and adjust their shots accordingly.
It looks like you loaded her shot with a magnum charge by the way the rifle came back and kicked her.
Next time it might be better to just allow her to shoot a low powder charged bullet, just for the experience of shooting rather than hand her a rifle charged with an amount of powder that was only going to hurt
and scare her away from wanting to take a second shot.
