Riding with injuries; who else does it?

I have a broken foot bone and a fractured pelvis. Still gimping out to the barn to get my fix. :) Any one else disregard the Dr.'s orders???

I really try not to. I want to be able to stay in the saddle as long as I can and need to treat my body as well as I treat my horses

Gulity :).

I've ridden with a bleeding and swollen arm before.

Don't know if this counts as an injury but I pretty much rode through a really bad heat headache (it got to the point that I COULD NOT concentrate). I got off and a few minutes later everyone started untacking. I was like I could've just stayed on! . From that day forward I drank a whole water bottle before I rode.

Nothing too extreme...yet!

I spent almost two years.... twenty three months to be exact... in a full length cast and learned to ride with it on. I also rode with my broken back BUT didn't know it was broken till 5 years later when I had an xray done...

I tore my MCL a few years ago and it was misdiagnosed and my knee still hurts all the time. I turned my stirrups, so it's not so bad anymore, but it affects my balance.

I also rode last summer with a twisted vertebra in my neck. That was caused by riding though and stopping fast, then bouncing in the saddle. I rode until I couldn't get out of bed because my headache was so bad. It took almost 2 weeks to figure out why I had a killer headache.

I have had a bulging disc in my neck for years. Kills me if
I have to pull at all, plus I have less strength, but.......

I have a feeling I am in for a struggle the next couple of weeks to keep my BO (and great friend) out of the barn and off her horses.....she managed to amputate the upper 1/3 of her thumb last night. Got between a horse and a gate.

I got on a week after spraining my ankle. But I rode bareback with lots of people around.

I rode in a show 2 days after a biopsy on the hemangioma(sp?) on my leg. Also rode with a broken middle finger(cinching up sucked) that had to be in a splint. I had so much fun with people who disliked me haha.

I tore my ACL two months ago as well as the meniscus and went through two major surgeries to fix them, and they're still debating whether or not to do a third since my ACL still isn't healing properly. I'm technically not supposed to be riding for two and a half more months but I'm already back in the saddle. Can't even walk right and have a huge contraption on my leg, but I'm still riding!

I wouldn't recommend it though o.- I'm being a terrible patient

I've ridden with fractured ribs, pulled everythings, and have put my own shoulder back in place twice to get back on, surgery 2 years ago has made the chances of that happening again much less. Can't quit until you come out ahead right? :) Never had the opportunity to learn to ride with a cast on and certainly hope I never do!
