I was knocked unconcious for over half an hr...i don't remember about a week except for some small snatches...my trainer & mum were pretty freaked out of course...but I don't remember anything. It was horrible though, I couldnt really see for awhile & I wasnt allowed on a horse for 6 months

the horse reared & flipped over on me. We didnt have an arena to ride in so I was riding her in a large dirt paddock but we hadnt had any rain for a long time so it was really hard & packed. My helmet broke in two.

I've been knocked out and have had a couple of good concussions too. When I was 8, I had a really bad fall (I asked my instructor about it a few years ago and she said that she would tell me what happened just once, then the memory was going to be repressed again) - my helmet was broken, I broke my arm, and got knocked right out. Can't remember much from that day at all.
Since then I've fallen off and gotten concussions, and been kicked in the head once. None of them were any fun at all to deal with.

I've never lost concisnous (sp?) during a lesson. But, one time I was out with my Welara pony cantering in a field. It was November, and since I am in Alberta the ground was already frozen but for some reason there wasn't any snow on the ground yet. Anyway, I was cantering when my horse took off. I was wearing the roller spurs so since they are long I got hi
with both feet causing him to buck and twist. The only thing I remember was my forehead hitting the ground (I was wearing a helmet) then waking up to see my horse all the way across the field without a bridle which must have come off in the process I
Of me falling. Luckily, my mom was there and I insited on getting back on. After we were all done I got a really bad headache. So my mom took me to the hospital an it turned out that I had a minor concussion. It happened on a Friday so on Monday I went back to school. On tuesday we had our christmas concert and I had one hell of a time trying to remember my lines. Hehe
