Ouch . A lot of these made me shudder.
i Have a few but i'll share one with you guys. I was riding a new horse at my barn and hes a warmblood but he's very awkward and lanky and he's very heavy in the front, so i tried to keep him collected the whole time. I went over a few jumps then gave him a break and started to canter, he completley tripped and fell on me. I thought that Wow that wont happen again...two days later i get on i jump him over a vertical and we went to do a roll back and BAM he falls on me and i crack my nice IRH Helmet, besides that not much but a few bruises and i came out okay.

You know what it's not that bad. We are at a day and age where fortunately for us a lot of serious injuries are fixable.

It's a risk we all agreed to when we started to be with horses:)
