Sorry I made you laugh

I am sure lots of times my horse is rolling his eyes at me thinking "what on earth is she up to now and what does it have to do with The Biscuit".

He is a good boy and has helped me immensely with my confidence. I was thrown 3.5 years ago by a crazy horse I was considering purchasing. I hadn't rode really in 26 years. Got a horse anyway but have spent all that time trying to get my confidence back. Biscuit has been a godsend!!

Ouchie not nice I know the feeling!!

I was jumping my crazy mare and she took off early and I got pulled underneath her when she turned and I was scrambling to stay on.. I ended up being run over and breaking my ribs and having 6 weeks off school! Crazy thing is though, I got back on afer I fell and kept riding, never realizing the pain until the next morning.. My bad -_-

It's always the longest trip ever to the ER with broken ribs huh, I come off a horse an hour away from the hospital and boy was that the longest journey in the passenger seat ever. I was thrown something almighty man, crazy horse lol.

hope you heal up soon!! And don't let them strap you up, my dad shattered a rib while motor racing and they strapped it up which made it worse cause he couldn't move!

They gave me a velcro adjusting rib wrap and said just wear it if you want. Most of the time I don't wear it but occasionally it does help support my posture after a long day.

HollyBubbles and QOS: Sorry you got thrown too. Sucks doesn't it?

Earlier this year my horse bolted after being attacked by an invisible horse eating vampire from her imagination. I think a bee stung her. She was terrified. I got off balance and I hit the dirt. I was sore but not broken. She came over to see why I was on the ground. She never even had any idea that she got me off. She acted perfectly normal on the next ride. (It was a couple of weeks because I was pretty bruised up.) I think that your horse will be fine once you get better. I cannot even begin to imagine my horse's reaction to a pipe that attacks and bites horses causing them to buck......

I've decided pain or not, I'm going riding on Tuesday. I think I'll be fine even though I still can't sleep on my right side (where the rib is broken). Can't wait!!
