Definitely the other horse bolting in your horse's direction triggered the bucking. Herd instinct is very strong.

Just curious how many minutes you were at the ER before asking the doctor when you could ride again?

Glad you're okay! And yeah I don't think he was trying to dump you.. just got a little carried away with the fear response.

The obstacle course is a disaster waiting to happen though...

Horses don't buck if they can't get head down, once it is down, pretty much all over if horse is bucking.

Glad you aren't hurt.

Well the hospital called me back Tuesday. They said their main doctor who does quality reviews on the xray films had a different diagnosis than the the one that read my chart in the ER that evening. Rib #4 fractured into pieces! No wonder it hurts so bad. Can't breathe hardly. There goes a good part of my summer riding...pooh.

And the piping is gone forever according to the owner of the B&B!

Oh honey.. :( that's insane!

Hope you start healing up and feeling much better soon!

It's a shame that you were the guinea pig in testing the safety of the course. There had to be some doubt about it not being secure enough for a horse obstacle course :/ Least it's gone now!

Be sure and be followed up by your regular doctor. Sometimes ribs fractured into pieces do NOT heal together again. And/or they can puncture a lung. Be VERY aware of how you're breathing and how much air you can take in. Broken ribs hurt like you-know-what, but when they are broken into pieces it can be really dangerous.

Thanks. I think I'll do that because it's almost been 3 weeks and the pain sometimes is still excruciating! Ouch!

So sorry that rib is broke...bless your heart....I FEEL for you. If I were there I would make you some biscotti, bring a latte and swap stories with you.

I think your horse bolted because of the other horses just like others have said. Biscuit did that once...Horse exploded out of his shelter running towards us. Horses in paddock next to us turned and ran towards us too. Biscuit whirled around and took off....and I came off. Ugh. It was in the grass though so other than some bruises on my let I was fine. Now it makes me nervous when I think horses are going to explode out of something... I am a sissy.

I got back on though. He had gone down to his own paddock about 50 yards away and I am sure his though bubble was "there was danger running right at us sister....I got us out of it and your big butt fell off...there is no hope for you!"

I mounted up and rode back to the barn which was a big pickle for me. I had always said if I came off a horse again I would be too afraid to ride. Well, I wasn't...but I am careful!!!

When you are able you will be able to get up and go. Work on desensitizing your horse but unfortunately, we can't desensitize for EVERYTHING.

Hope you are feeling better soon. Take care of yourself!
