Summer of 09' while riding my pony she went to deep into a turn with a mud patch slipped out from underneath herself and fell on my right leg breaking my tibia in two places near the ankle requiring surgery. I wasnt supposed to ride until I was done with physical therapy which would be around 5 months. About two weeks before I got off crutches I broke the rules and rode after 6 weeks post surgery (2 months since accident) at a show w/t/c.
I finished PT in about half the time I should of mostly because of using just my knee for posting, having to put my heel down and from cuing. The doctor and physical therapists where very surprised, but never learned of the extra physical therapy I was doing.
