in what way? like, "I did something stupid, I got myself hurt" kinda way?

or is this in reference to your questions regarding men hurting themselves "there" in the saddle?

Horse launched into a lead change along with a nice hefty buck, throwing me in front of the saddle... I tried to right myself and in the process over corrected and threw myself off the horse flat onto my back. Several weeks later, tailbone is still bruised and ego even more so! :)

I one time went to get on my horse bareback when I catapulted myself up.... and over her back only to land on the other side. Too bad my trainer was heading her for me. Another time on my gelding I was riding english and he decided to spook and buck a little. Being thrown off balance and fighting to stay on I wrapped my arms around his neck and from what I'm told had a little Icabod Crane moment (when his butt flew up and the horses' butt hiked up to meet his and reseat the rider). I was thankfully just bruised, but my ego really hurt as well as my behind.

Not really an injury, but funny.

I went trail riding with a friend at a local park that offered seasonal trail rides. Now keep in mind that I had been a dedicated English rider for nearly 25 years. At the end of our ride I went to dismount, which I had done thousands of times before. As I slid myself down from the horse's back, I didn't take into account that I was dismounting from a western saddle. As such, my under wire bra got caught on the saddle horn and there I was, hanging from the horn by my bra. Naturally, the horse was tall enough that the tips of my toes were barely able to touch the ground. I was just dangling there trying to get someone's attention while the staff was hustling around helping the non-horsey people get off their horses. I was finally able to slip my bra up over my boobs and get myself free. I no longer wear under wire bras!

Arab Mama, I thought I was the only one that had ever done that! When I tried Parker for the first time, I got caught on the saddle horn (I haven't ridden in a western saddle in years) and had to CLING to him and dislodge myself. It took a good minute, because the owner was chatting with my mother and my friend and wasn't paying attention. I was very worried Parker was just going to take off and I would "die by bra", but he didn't move except to stare at me.

Funny in hindsight. At the time? Not so much.

I had an embarrassing injury. My friend was boosting me onto her horse, and we didn't coordinate our actions well enough. I didn't jump at the right time, so I didn't get the full benefit of her push, and I ended up on the horse, just sitting on his rump behind the saddle! He took off bucking, I slid off his rear end, and his hindquarters caught my chin in mid-buck, breaking my jaw.

I didn't find out it was broken until a few months later, when I went to the doctor because I still couldn't open my mouth properly. To this day, I suffer from TMJ disorder and I cannot open my mouth straight - the ligaments on one side of my jaw are too damaged to function.

I've done that luckily my horse is honest enough just to stand there with his head turned, watching my antics. I definitely watch how I dismount now..

I have done this way too many times. I no longer wear bras with underwire either. I just started wearing my workout shirts with the built in bras and they work much better.
