How the heck did you manage to land with your spur on your spine? You must have been all disonbobulated!
I'm so glad I haven't actually BROKEN anything in my back. I know how painful a broken tailbone is, I can't imagine it being in my back! Ouch!

Keep these coming! They're interesting to read!

And to those of you who have only gotten bruises...just wait

I have never actually been inured other than a few bruises, 1 time my wrist swelled up to about twice it;s normal size and the little bone on the out side was sticking out, it looked very bad but after the swelling went down it looked fairly normal so I didn't have to go to hospital fortunatly. I got trampled once and got hoof shaped bruises all over my legs but it didn't actually hurt much.

let me see t many bruises to coud after owning my first horse for a day he welled off and kicked me in the leg with a huge horse shoe imprint
I have been drug by my left leg in the stirriup and that has cause tissue damage in that knee
been kicked in the shoulder not to horrible
Broke 3 ribs
Found out that it is possible to dislocate your rib cage and have it found in your up by your shoulders
I have had every toe broken comes with having a rotten colt
And I think my favorite and most rememberable is when I got drug through the pasture and being a novice teenager at the time didnt let go of the lead rope bad idea hit three rocks with my face put my teeth through my cheek and nice swollen mess
lesson let go of the lead rope next time
but nothing to horrible though im sure I will pay for it later in life but im going to enjoy my horses and all that come with them for now

haha xD


I forgot to add more.

Aside from bruised ribs, I also bruised:
-my right hand (due to lead rope snapping back at me)
-right foot (slammed into fence)
-pretty much right side (due to Murray's trial days of being a tard)

And the typical hoof on my foot.

Nope, nothing broken or swollen yet. -knock on wood-

LOL. I think when she said "spur", she means the wing looking things on the outside of your vertebrae. Not the things on the back of your boots.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Your correct, those are the "spurs" that I was talking about!

I don't wear riding spurs very often (not even sure where they are at the moment).

I've been riding for about 9 years and so far only:

A concussion
Sprained finger!


Every ride, good or bad, teaches you something new.

oh god too many to list.
Latest was I got bitten and my arm went numb and purple, it swelled up like crazy, and then bruised a couple days later, the bruise is gone now but I had weird as lumps in my wrists now and the knobley bone feels funny and it clicks when you push it, feels all tingly when I touch it. Havent been to the doctor.. should be all g.

Uhm
Got kicked in the head, had a concussion, black eye and a lump as big as a fist on my head.
Fell off on an X bar and landed in the middle of the X and it didnt fall down, broke a couple bones in my back or something and did allot of damage to the muscle, still plays up even though it was over a year ago.

Got stood on when I fell off an OTTB, luckliy I had my body protector on and it went straight threw my body protector and had a big bruise on my chest for weeks, if I wasnt wearing my body protector I wouldnt be here today.

Fell off broke mhy ankle in 16 places and detached my foot from my leg, got a huge cut form horse hoof on my leg, 500 stitches, 2 operations and allot of metal later lol.

Yeah that's all I can think of atm.
Oh aqnd I've been riding for 8ish years

Thankfully I've had it pretty easy. My last real injury was 2 1/2 years ago. I was sitting kinda sidesaddle on my sisters horse (not really sure why....) Anyway she went to lift her head up and smacked her head on the barb wire fence. The next thing I knew I was laying on the ground. Her hoof kinda scraped down my lower leg and I had a nice concussion and a hoof shaped bruise on my thigh. Even now after that long I still have a bruise on my lower leg and it hurts like hell some days.

Other than that, I've been bopped in the chin a couple of times by my mare and got dragged through the pasture for a couple feet by my friends horse.

my wedding ring finer was so badly broken then I never went to the hospital for it so I can't wear my ring on that finer. Then my tail bone was so badly broken so many times that last year I got surgery to remove it and put a plastic one in there....that sucked.
