    GUILTY!

    About 2years ago I had just got my new pony, and I had fallen off and broken my arm. Determined not to be out of the saddle for more then 2weeks, I begged my mum to let me ride; of course she said no, so I had to devise a plan. XD

    Lets just say, while they were at work I went to the horse (thanks to my big brother, who helped me tack up and get on) and got to ride for 30minutes, and lets say my pony was fresh and kept bucking. HAHAH.

    I was an idoit, but when I told mum about it a couple of months later, she said she was happy that I was so keen, and told my brother off. HAHA WIN!

    When I went up to JackofDiamonds house in VIC, she put me on her "quiet" Karlos and I fell off and got 2 fingers caught in the reins and couldn't move them. I REFUSED to be taken to the hospital as I was worrried what my mum would say, but to this day, it still hurts and are both lumpy and it is 5 months later! Im trying to convince mum to get it X-rayed.....

    If they aren't broken they very well might be jammed. My left index finger got jammed on Halloween 2010, it hurt until last month, I thought it was broken and hadn't healed right. But, I went to the doc for something completely unrelated and he took a look at it. Apparently, as soon as jam happens you are supposed to pop whatever is jammed back into place. No thanks. He bent a few things around in there, and though it hurt then, it hasn't hurt since.

    I'm totally guilty as far as riding with injuries go :/. My most recent one was like my second week at the barn where I board now. I went out into the herd to get the horse I was leasing at the time and somehow got between my current horse and the alpha. The alpha kicked at my horse and broke my hand. I walked it off because no one saw it happen, grabbed my horse and rode for about 2 hours. As I was cleaning up later my daughter was like 'Mom? Your hand is blue?!'
    I never did get a cast on it, I told the doc if I had a cast I wouldn't be able to work and I couldn't afford to miss work, so I just kept my two middle fingers taped together. In reality I was scared to death, since I was leasing at the time that my BO would not allow me to ride. I didn't tell him until months later what really happened.

    The worst injury I've ever gotten and ridden with was when my finger got caught in between a lead rope (that a horse was clipped to) and the post it was tied to. The horse freaked out and my finger got ripped open.
    I had a few bandaids and a finger splint on it and I rode in a show the next day.

    I've probably ridden with sprained ankles and wrists too but nothing too serious. Come to think of it, I've never really been seriously injured .....no broken bones or anything!

    For the most part, riding with a sprained ankle or headache is no big deal, but don't you think pain causes your seat to be differnt in anyway? Plus, the injury can always get worse.....

    As for riding with a back injury, well that is not something I would do. You have one back, it is easy to throw out, and once done, almost impossible to get back. I treat my body like I do my horse- rest when injured until well.

    Green Broke
    Guilty as charged!

    Once went to a show with a broken wrist, have ridden with a broken shoulder, cracked ribs and a concussion (not all at the same time)
    I've jumped a 1m20 show jumping course with 2 dislocated fingers and a mild concussion.

    Oh and every time I sit on a horse I am dealing with 2 crushed discs in my lower spine (that are a permanant feature now as discs apparently don't uncrush)
