Argh! Broken arm!!!!!

So my husband and I went riding today. I was riding my horse and he was riding our newly broke 15 year old. My horse was completely out of his head so I took him to our round pen to work on ground work. Bad idea! My husbands horse starting bucking as soon as my horse was loping in the round pen. A few hours later after an emergerncy room visit and my husband has a broken arm. We will find out more after we see an ortho surgeon this coming week. Oh boy. And this is just after we just starting getting back into riding after losing our mare this last fall. I feel so bad.

I broke my collarbone last year at a track meet and couldn't ride most of last year's show season, it drove me up the wall! Hang in there, best of luck in his recovery!

Oh, that's horrible. Hopefully it won't be too serious and the ortho can get him all fixed up. My thoughts are with you both and I wish him a speedy and pain-free recovery.

Oh no I am so sorry.

My ex husband used to race motorcycles and would break at least one bone every year, I swore he did it for the sponge baths I would have to give him. :)

Best wishes for speedy recovery. I personally am going through the same thing, although I didn't break my arm riding. People have good suggestions, see my previous posts/replies. It's just a few months of recuperation with or without riding.

Breaking something that prevents me from riding is my worst fear ever :(

Good luck, stay sane! :P

that sucks! im so sorry. i havent been able to ride for the 7 months. i have been pregnant and was told by the doctors not to ride even though i have 13 yrds experience. i was thrown into a round pen panel by a filly that i was training before i knew i was pregnant. i was about 3 weeks along. but thankfully i didnt lose the baby. i cried when i was told not to ride. i rode for a little bit while pregnant i just walked and jogged. but now since ive had my baby at the end of january, im itching to get back in the saddle. i go back to the doctor the 8th of march. i hope i get the ok to ride.
