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.

Ouch still doesn't look 100% right...

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