Yesterday I went out on a trail ride with my friends. I was riding a gelding named Duke, and the girl in front of me was riding a mare named Comet. We were trotting, and I looked down for a second to put something in my pocket. As soon as I looked back up all I saw was Comet's hind foot flying straight towards me! I heard the CLAP when the shoe on her hoof came in contact with my knee cap, and boy did it hurt! I was in so much pain that I got dizzy on the walk back, and had to lay on Duke's neck for a few minutes.
I was wearing jeans, so I didn't realize how bad it was until I got off Duke and sat down. The borium on her shoe had taken off a chunk of my skin just under my knee cap. My entire knee is swollen in the position I was in while I was on Duke. It's all black and blue, and I can barely walk because the swelling is pushing my knee cap up.
I've never gotten kicked before, so this has been quite an experience! Lol
