fractured both my knee & wrist

Some of you guys might remember my thread about a month ago about how I got kicked by a horse with a borium shoe in the knee. Well Monday I was riding a little Arab gelding bareback with a halter & lead rope while trying to pony a TWH gelding & a Anglo-Arab gelding at the same time. I was trying to take them from the stable they were at to the pasture that's barely a mile down the road. Well the two geldings were cooperating, but the lil Arab was NOT! I was probably on him for only 2 minutes before he decided he just wanted to take off. I was still hanging on to the the two geldings while trying VERY hard to stop the Arab. One rein-stops, etc. Was not working. So I did the only thing I could do, I reached forward & put my fingers in his nose and yanked his head around. Lol That got him to stop.... for a few seconds. The two geldings decided that they'd better just stop moving all together, but Shadow the arab thought it was the best time to take off like a bullet! So I ending up on the road landing on my butt and wrist, mostly wrist. The only thing that was going through my head while watching cars go by was, "How embarrassing." lol Especially since I have to pony those horses everyday back and forth. You'd think they'd be used to it by now. Haha

I didn't even realize I hurt my wrist that bad until about 20 minutes later. I could tell that it hurt, but nothing near the pain I had when I got kicked. But when it started to turn black and blue, my boss made me go get it xrayed and I decided to check out the knee too since I never went to go get it checked in the first place. Hehe Turns out that I fractured the kneecap, it was very clear on the xray. Near the bottom edge of the kneecap. For my wrist she thinks that there are a few fractures, but she wants me to come in tomorrow to see the specialist because there are so many little bones in the wrist. But as of right now, I am wearing a VERY uncomfortable wrist brace. Thank you very much Shadow! *sarcasm*

Wrist injuries are no fun. You're lucky to have turned out with just those for injuries.
Good Luck with your recovery
