My wedding ring is tattooed on (his jobs/careers do not allow him to wear jewelry so we came up with the tattoo solution), but I had bought a cheap new pretty silver thing to wear on my index finger and I noticed it flexing and moving constantly when I rode with it. It messes with my grip, so I stopped wearing it when riding.
Now, my thumb ring, that never comes off lol. I am actually so used to wearing my thumb ring (an old fashioned, chunky brass piece) that I notice it more when I don't wear it. But it has been a problem once before, because I wasn't paying attention. I was palming and playing with the nose of my BO's black Walker, and he started lipping and licking my thumb ring, rolling it around my finger. I didn't think anything of it, I am very used to him just licking and lapping up my hand and arm like a dog would, so I let him continue. He bit the ring. Just grabbed it between his teeth and bit down so hard he bent the metal. The ring actually pinched my thumb hard and was painfully stuck until I pulled out a pair of pliers from my car and unbent it. I still have not rounded it out and can point out the flat side where his teeth bent it in.
So, always be aware and careful of your jewelry if you do wear it with horses. Especially the mouthy ones.
Any one else notice the obscene amount of engagement ring advertisements on this thread? I'm on a new computer and haven't installed my ad blockers yet. It's hard not going, oooooo shiney, and clicking on the ads.
