I thought it would be interesting to hear some of the accidents and injuries we have recieved while having our beloved horses. I'll start with mine.
My mom had bought this arabian mare that was broke just for kids about 6 or 7 years ago and she was by far the best horse for us, we had her for about 8 months and I had bought a belgian colt as well. We had them both for another couple months and one day we were in the field trying to get a new halter on my baby ben (belgian) our mare was just bread for her first time and we found out later that the stallion tore her up so she was pretty tramatized. We finally managed to get his halter on and when he went to pass behind her to get to the field his nose touched her rear end, we think she thought he was going to mount so of course she kicked at him and he moved. She ended up getting me instead. She hit me right in the face! All I remember is running while my moms husband and my husband were chasing me screaming at me to stop, I looked down at my hands and they were covered in blood. So we knew she hit my mouth, my husband rushed me to the hospital and as wee were speeding to get there we got pulled over, the cop took one look at me and had us follow him to the er. It turns out she had broken my jaw!! They had to do surgery to fix it and put in 2 steel plates, when we were ready to go home from the hospital we found out she had also fractured a couple of my ribs. Mow the kicker part of this was at the time I was 3 1/2 months prego with my daughter. Thankfully me and my baby were ok. I had to go through months of dental work but in the end everything turned out ok. We still have this mare and she is still the best horse we have known, my daughter is in now almost 6 is learning how to ride with her. She can lead this horse anywhere, both my kids can do anything to her and she just lets them. We had so many people say if she had belonged to them they would have shot her for kicking me, but we know she was not meaning to hit me so we don't blame her at all.
Ok that's mine so lets hear some of yours lol
