Here is mine, my left write-which is now fuzed. Fell off while jumping. It required 9 surgeries and a lot of screws and plates(actually had more than that but they removed them.

This below is caused by riding. Pre-existing problem which eventually let to this because of riding.

Ouch, Geldings! Makes my injury look awfully puny, but here goes!

These were from my little fall on 06/25/11. Don't know if it counts as a riding injury, since I actually fell trying to get back on my horse. She was an angel - never moved a muscle when the ground gave way on the ravine bank I was using as a makeshift mounting block.

The cast is off my foot, now, but there is still some bruising evident on my toes, and even up underneath the toenails.

I tried to put my boot on this weekend, but it was still a no go. I was really dissapointed. It didn't hurt to try to put on the boot, but my foot was still WAY too swollen!

Here is my latest.

I wish the camera picked up the discoloration better, but oh well.

Sunny stepped on my foot pretty good yesterday. At first my mom and I thought one of my toes was broken because it was so swollen that it looked disfigured. But thankfully it's just bruised.

ive been riding for 8 years and ive never had a bad fall, thats just good look as im such a dare devil its dangerous.
i was on the beach one time and my horse gets her bit under her tongue so i get off to change it and my mum on her horse said here ill do it and try's to undo her sidestrap, well my horse rears because shes head shy and pulls the bridle off so its hanging down still connected to her martyn gail, well i grab her stirrup thinking she wouldnt bolt and well, she did. she threw me into the air my thumb stuck in the stirrup leathers and she threw my right into the sea, head first. well i broke my thumb and she stopped about half way down the beach because i think she got a bit bored on her own, i put her bridle back on and rode her home. was pretty painful!

Darn, I don't have pictures.
My worst was when I was in 3rd grade - that one resulted being sent to a hospital 150 miles from where we lived due to a cracked cheek bone that closed over nerves from my eye and caused major issues -- that was a fun two weeks.
I had a toenail that was deformed for YEARS, not kidding, it only completely cleared up w/in the last 10 years and it happened about 20 years ago)-I was wearing boots but had a horse that was specialized in stepping on your foot, pretending to be oblivious of the fact and then getting in a couple nice slow twist/smear of the hoof before FINALLY acknowledging that you were trying to get him to move his **** hoof -- that one deformed my nailbed..
Lastly, one I couldn't post a picture of if I wanted to, for decency's sake. A couple of months after we got Aero and brought her home she decided that she was tired of doing what I was asking and, before I could react, swung her head around, got a MOUTHFUL of my boob and BIT. She broke the skin, left a nasty bruise and swelling and I still have palpable scar tissue under the skin on that (should have seen the look on my doctor's face at my last yearly exam when she thought she felt a lump and I said, "Oh, don't worry, that's just a horse bite"

Jeez those are some nasty injuries!

When I first started riding Cowboy, my mom was there to watch me tack up, and I tightened his girth, and he kicked out, I'm guessing to get a fly? Well anyways he kicked out and caught my mom in the thigh. She almost fell over because it hurt so bad. The picture was when it first happened, and about 2 days later it had gotten black and blue and the size of a paper plate! She also has a hard knot right where it happened to this day..and in the picture you can see the hoof print..lol

I usually go swimming with Cowboy, and I never wear shoes, which is pretty stupid, and we were walking in the water and I wasn't paying attention and he stepped right on my left foot :( He also did that to my friend about a week before in the same spot lol. So now we have matching scars lol! In the pictures, it's the red spot below my big toe, not the white spot on the middle of my foot.

Then about 2 weeks ago I was jumping Cowboy, and he took a weird distance so I got left behind and lost my stirrup on the way down, then just fell.. I have a video of it, but only right before I fell.. :/ If you pause it right at the end, you can see where I lost my stirrup. -_- I have a picture of me after though, where I'm all dirty lol. I landed right on my tailbone and couldn't walk straight but I had to go get Cowboy. I got back on him and we jumped the jump perfectly haha :)

**EDIT** So I just took those feet pictures, maybe 10 minutes ago..and Didn't really look at them..but omg there's a mosquito on my foot! ARGHHH!?!?!?!?! And lol @ my flip flop tan ^_^
