Broken shoulder, and I rode in a show the next day.

I also scraped my wrist the other day. And I've made my elbow bleed falling off a horse.

The only thing I every went to the hospital for was falling into a jump standard. Almost broke my collarbone and received 7 stitches in my calf from the jump cup slicing my leg open. Also my brain rattled in my skull and I almost had a concussion, and I remember seeing very bright lights about twenty minutes after the fall.

I was in shock and couldn't feel anything, so I attempted to get back on and try the jump again. I remember being quite disappointed when my instructor didn't let me.

The only time I've ever fallen off a horse I broke my femur. Well the tree broke it lol. I was riding down a hill and got into a huge nest of yellow jackets and we started to run and he went one way and I did a 180 and hit a tree with my leg and cracked it in half. I was by myself in the woods for several hours...kinda tramatizing lol. I was bareback so I couldn't imagine if I'd caught my leg in a stirrup.

Cool Learn to bounce

Wow you certainly have had a few accidents. I have had a horse rear over backwards and land on me.I survived that. Broken arm fractured foot,countless bruises blood nose......maybe we should take up knitting it would save on hospital bills.

wow alot of crazy stories here. I would have to say the worst thing so far was getting clocked in the face. My moms old arab mare kicked at my gielding and got me instead, she broke my jaw and fractured a couple ribs. It wouldnt have been so bad had i not been pregnant with my daughter. Other than that luckly just a few bruises. lol Oh my daughter was born on time and perfectly healthy.

I just had surgery a week ago from the last one and been sitting on this forum on pain killers since so I wont bother writing a very long response. I have something I can post thats louder than words.

I've had a hyperextended wrist, hurt my knee somehow, shin splints, three bruises, a black toenail for over 6 months, and I broke both bones in my left forearm and had to have surgery the next day on it. :)
