    Humm... I have two I can think of. I was galloping my horse down in one of the upper pastures and apparently someone up rooted a line of fence, and left the wires and my horse tripped in them (couldn't see them) and I flew over his head and landed on the ground. I broke my ankle, but that's it and was bruised all over. I managed to get up and check him and he was fine. My friend eventually picked us up. The other one I was working my horse in the outdoor at my trainers and a truck back fired. The horse took off and I got stuck in the stirrup, I was dragged and got hurt but no biggie.

    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.
