Stella--what is your defination of head injury? Most people still will continue to play their sport with a mild to moderate concussion (hockey, soccer, lacrosse, football etc) with no harm done. I am sure that as an Olympic level rider, Ms. Rolton would have known if she could or could not have gotten back on her horse.
As to the OP, I have been riding since I was 5, except for a few years at the end of high school and into my early twenties(15ish years maybe altogether...??), and still do not consider myself a "good" rider. I do well, but I still make mistakes, still ask questions, still try to absorb all the knowledge I can from other more experienced riders and trainers.
