I never thought of this before, but in my June issue of Equus, the last page is an article about it that made me think. Basically the person unknowingly injured her ring finger due to an emergency dismount which the doctors said wouldn't have happened if she wasn't wearing her wedding ring. It went on to discuss how it's very common for people to permanently injure or amputate their finger because of the wedding ring.
I have always worn mine, even though lately the reins slide it down my finger and I'm afraid I will lose it in the arena or on trail. But now, I am wondering if I should just leave it at home when I am with the horses. How many of you wear your ring or other rings? Have any of you injured your finger or hand because of it?
