Well I've only every had one serious injury due to horses. I've had many bruises and scraps over the years but I don't usually keep track of them or how they happened. Horses stepping on my feet, horse dragging me through a thorn bush, falling and bruising my legs, pulling muscles in my neck, that sort of stuff.

My only serious hospital worthy accident took place this past October. I was on a trail ride on the green horse I was working with at the time and he spooked and tried to take of for home. I lost my balance and fell while he was going about 30 miles per hour. I nearly hit the paved road but thankfully landed in the grassy ditch instead. Thankfully I was wearing a helmet because I hit my head on the ground. I ended up shattering my right elbow and messing up some ligaments there. Got some good bruises too. Also stretched a nerve in my right hand that made it go numb for a couple months. But I'm glad that's all it was. I had to have surgery but it could have been much worse. I've lost some of my range of motion in my right arm and I might need another surgery in a year if it doesn't fix itself, but other than that I'm all better now.

Heres my list:
-Broken ankle (while dismounting!)
-several concussions (bucked off, rearing, spooking, my head always seems to break my falls!)
-Several "sprains" after awkward falls
-Uncountable amount of brusies

I got kicked once. I got a bruse but it was nothing serious. I have never gotten any injuries from fallling off. =]

Hay splinters and bruised toes.
I got a black eye and a bloody nose from a horse that used to throw his head really bad.
I also dislocated my right shoulder when I was leading a couple horses at once. They spooked and went in different directions.

Only bad thing is when I broke the growth plate in my right ankle.

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

Ooooh hahahahahaha

Not sure I can compete with some of these, but as I'm on four weeks bed rest for breaking three of the 'wings' in my lumbar spine I thought I should join in! At least I'm at home and not in hospital, but I'm missing the horses so much, it sucks!

Anyway, I'm new to the forum - so hi to everyone!

I have been riding for about three years now and I really havn't had much happen to me aside from several bruises. :) I've been bucked off once and I landed on my back and it really hurt but it wasn't broken or anything, and then there are countless amounts of times that i've been bucked but not fallen off.
