Ok so I figured I would join in on the 20 somethings topic. I am nearing the upper end of 20 Don't know if I could survive the earlier yrs in the 20's again though!

I recently had a pretty bad horse accident and have at least 1 1/2 more weeks before I can ride again. Broken ribs, broken pelvis, and punctured lung are no dang fun!

My friends all went to a team sorting practice last night that we have started all started attending. I refused to go bc I knew I couldn't ride and would be miserable that I couldn't ride! I am so ready to be 100% and back on my horses!

Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, and today is a gift-that's why it's called the present.

Yeah I'm 28, turning 29 in a couple months. A lot of my friends are older though so I always think I'm in my 30s!

That accident sounds awful! What happened, if you don't mind me asking?

Figured I'd try and join the 20 somethings. I'm in my early 20's but I've grown quite annoyed with the teens I deal with on a daily basis at work. Sometimes I have to remind myself I can go to jail for assaulting them.

Ioconnor, a few years ago, as a stupid teen, I had an accident that led to similar injuries and I was an absolute horror to be around. All my horse friends would come to visit and I'd sulk the whole time because all I wanted to do was ride when I couldn't.

Show me a horseman who hasn't fallen and I'll show you a man who has never truly ridden.

nyx, i'll be 30 in a little over a week.

And I also, luckily, have never had any serious injury from a horse. Plenty of bruises, but nothing too serious.

No not at all.

Basically a dog came out after us when I was loping my horse up a hill. I turned the horse to go after the dog, the dog cont. To come running after us barking and growling. Horse jumped sideways, spun around, leaving me hanging onto the side of the saddle. She started to haul ass home, we were right beside my brothers house, and I met with the propane tank

Now my horse has previously had a pit bull come after and jump on her shoulder about 6-7 mos ago one day when we were riding. She was nervous around dogs after that, but I had diligently worked with her and she had no problems. My boxer usually rides with us unless its far from home.

So we will start back chasing dogs and cows when I am cleared to get back to work!
