Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

I can count how many times I've fallen:

1. Galloping and turning a sharp corner (slide off the side but wasn't hurt)
2. Crazy tennessee walker bolted and I hit a fence (sprained ankle and gash on arm... ouch!!)
3. Qh mare refused a jump and I slid off and landed on my feet!
4. Riding Jubilee in the snow; cantered bareback and slipped off the side
5. Did this twice. :P

My most recent fall (probably almost a year ago now) was when my horse was a little over-excited. She saw/heard/smelled/imagined something scarey, just about jumped out of her skin and shied violently. I wasn't really concentrating and so I fell off into a patch of caltrop (prickle weeds!). I had all these prickles stuck in my.... seat lol which I had to pull out, one by one, before I could get back on . I really hoped no one was watching! It makes me laugh when I think about it now lol

I win that one...

I quit counting. I always thought it would be fun to figure out the number of times and keep track but I quit doing it.

How many times have I gotten hurt?? Hmmm without counting the scratches, cuts and bruises...I got a concussion that kept me in hospital for 3 days, and have had 9 separate surgeries to fix my pelvis and upper arm and wrist from broken bones caused by horses. Here are a few things for you to laugh at. I have a brand new x-ray I'll be posting in 2 days when I get it. Here is an old one from last month for now.

M2G, I've seen these X-Rays a few times now, and I don't believe I've ever heard how it happened - care to share? Definitely okay if you don't - my friend couldn't talk about her fall for years after it happened, but still rode.

Don't mind at all. The arm and wrist one is from a fall during a jumping lesson. We were in a grass ring, took a stride out and landed on the oxer
The other one was also from a fall. Once again in an evil grass ring. I don't seem to have good falling technique and hit the ground like a bag of potatoes

Here are today's updated x-rays: The left side (or the right side when looking at the picture straight on) is what I had fixed 3 weeks ago.

Looks like you will have s atought time getting through airport security!

Are you feeling OK? 3 weeks isn't very long ago. I hope you have a speedy recovery.

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.
