    Also to add about the seperation anxiety thing...
    My current young horse is like that so I do know what you mean. My horse is 6 years old, so i'm sending him to a trainer to get hobble and restraint training done on him and giving him a few years to learn to "handle" the situation, if I can't, and he jumps out of yards at events and won't settle enough then I will sell him full disclosure. Sometimes it can't be helped only managed.

    Good luck.

    In my 61 years I have been thrown many times by different horses and even my trusty QH mare. Although I never had to be hospitalized, but did have to get a pain prescription several times. Never broke a bone. I was laid up and on crutches a few times though. The really only time, as I recall, I was fearful after getting thrown by a 2 year old gelding that had 30 days under sadddle on him. That horse really dumped me hard. It was just a matter of making myself get back on. I did take it slow and easy though. Not pushing myself, but having such a strong desire to get riding again. I did ride another 2 year old gelding years after the first one. Only the second 2 yo was my mare's first born foal and I knew him like a book.

    Understandably, your family is concerned for your safety. Your determination to conquer your fear is commendable. Trying and trying again is a sure fired way to overcome your fear.

    Sending you for your attempts to get back on your horse.

    Find something you are confident to get back on. I seriously broke my leg and ankle in 5 spots and tore off the Achilles tendon. I spent 23 months (yep 1 month short of 2 years) in a cast most of which was in a full length cast... from the bottom of my foot to the top of my thigh.

    I found a horse to ride that I was very confident on and I knew wouldn't mind my cast bumping up against her if it did so accidentally. I started riding after my second (of three) surgery. I didn't want to spend one more day out of the saddle.

    I sometimes still have a fear but I don't let it keep me from riding.
