wow, so glad to hear you are going to be ok-like said above keep confidence/chin up-I agree with the attitude from above too-no your post didnt sound like anything other than a request for a little help at a bad moment. Lots of good ones to come.

Thanks guys,

I've spoken to a friend of mine who has a very quiet very old girl (33yrs I think) and she's going to let me play with her to help get me over this.

I say its an unreasonable fear, but really, when you think about it, it isn't.

I really really wish someone had video'd what happened, at least I could go back and search for those signals that I so obviously missed!

Anyway, time waits for no-one, so im throwing myself back into it now, albeit with an old darling who wouldn't dream of hurting a person (another horse, yes, just not people lol) and hopefully I can give her some love and she can help me get my confidence back

Thanks again guys

Oh, as for the colours, today we have yellow, browns, some reds and two white strips smack bang in the middle of the muscle where her toes got me. Lol

ok, I'm a bit confused, you were kicked in the legs but your liver and kidneys are injured? How did that happen?

Yep, poop happens. Generally when you least expect it. One of the worse kicks I got was working with a PMU mare and her foal. Baby had flexed tendons and I had been working with both on feeding for days. (obviously had previously been working with mama) and then BLAM! Double barreled me. Literally picked me up off the ground and slammed me into the stall wall. Other than the same pretty bruises that you have, I got off lucky and that was it.

Basically, for a while I REALLY was concious of my horse safety rules (cuz we all know we get lax sometimes) and boy was my armpit in her rear whenever I was behind her for quite a while.

You DO get over it eventually. Just like riding, you have to just do it or you'll be so afraid that you'll end up never doing it at all. And no one wants that.

Sorry you were hurt. Hope you feel better soon.

Some really good advice here.

Take it slow and be aware of your surrounding ( I"m sure you are) But you have to get back into the ring (saddle) and overcome your fears. You will always be more cautious now but your fears will subside in time.

I find that I am very flinchy, and with horses that I know don't kick (they all do, but you know what I mean) i'm incredibly wary. I'm so nervous I think im going to kicked just because of my demeanor, but im working really hard on it.

Thanks guys

You need to remember to that horses are horses. Regardless of how trained, young or old or even how well disciplined a horse is, at the end of the day they are still animals and will act as such. The training put into them can only decrease the chance of you getting hurt, it never takes it away fully.
As it has been posted, stay alert and always be cautious.
