I was 9 years old riding a horse for a friend. My brother and I were loping down a gravel road in the middle of town. When we passed an empty lot on the right, my horse saw the boogey man and dodged left. I didn't. As I went off, I tried to break my fall with my hands. All I ended up breaking was my left arm. It took 3 surgeries, 1 steel pin, 4 screws, and an "external fixator" to keep it in place. After spending all summer in a cast, I finally got to go back to normal. Never missed a day of riding though, even with all the gear on my arm.
