Those who think dressage isn't dangerous.. waha!
Getting kicked in the ribs and there's a loose horse - no time to be winded have to catch the horse.
Horse leaps through the air and helmet touches your back - keep riding!
Horse fractures foot 2 days before CDI jog - still run the horse they aren't looking for rider soundness. Show off ripped off toenail in emerg and tell the nurse bandaging your foot "that's going to fit in a boot".
Riding 2 horses a day in training camp with the flu.
Riding 4 horses a day + lessons and working with a major cold/sinus virus.
Yeah dressage folks are tough! When I broke my right foot I drove myself to emerg with my right foot. Hooves to ribs didn't warrant a Dr and I was barn staff at 2 stables plus riding. It hurt but it healed! Posted via Mobile Device
