We need to be constantly training ourselves and our horses to handle these situations. I'm not saying be paranoid, but be prepared to respond.
    SO true!!! I did something like this once...leaned over and hugged my pony's neck after a nice long lesson, someone ran past the door we were just walking by, she shyed to the side and off I came!!

    Yes I believe modern cow handling equipment (head catches, squeeze chutes, etc.) has crippled more cowboys than anything else. HAHAHAHA

    Roping is probably the most dangerous, especially pasture roping. I have a couple friends with missing fingers and one that had a thumb re-attached.

    Thanks for the info. It makes sense that jumping as well as cowboy work would be the most dangerous. I plan on doing neither! :)

    Just a pointer as far as the info inside helmet point. I don't know about other countries, but I have a first aid qualification in the UK and as far as I'm aware you're always told not to remove a helmet from someone unconcious because they may have a spinal injury and removing the helmet could destabilise it, so I would put my info somewhere else (I have an ICE app on my phone but maybe also a sticker on my boot if they're not show boots).

    All good ideas, great thread! I wear a high viz vest when riding or leading outside my property gates, even when handgrazing on our verge. I also carry my driving license which has my personal details and indicates that I am an organ donor, should an accident occur.
