So on Oct 16th I was riding my mare and she is only 3 and TB, so for sure still growing and she doesnt have very prominate withers. Anyways, we were just doing some trot work, getting her to focus on me asking her to really listen and suddenly she tripped and fell on to her knees picthing me up onto her neck cause I was caught by complete surpize and she couldnt get up so she was swimming on her knees for about 15-20 feet all the way down the long lide from the letter B and I was just tryping to get my feet out of the stirrups and coudnt caouse of all the forward falling boucny feeling and I was then able to final get my self off but she couldnt still get up and she rolled ontop of me she is pretty small but she was then able to get up and I jumped up making sure her legs were okay and if somthing was way wrong, I was wearing a helmet and so I was like okay I am fine I was way more worried about Klassy as that was her first fall adn my 1st fall off of her and poor thing was just shaking likea leaf, I tried walking her around and she wasnt limping at all, was actuly more intrested to see if I was okay and still pretty shakey, walk trot both ways not limping or lame and no blood on me or her. So I went to untack her in thr cross ties and she wouldnt turn around... just refused. Then I felt her legs again, this wa 10 minutes after the fall and I had already left her legs and no heat or blood... but now it was really warm and startingto sweel, so I hada friend untack her for me just there wasnt going to ask her to turn around cause I knew she was in pain. I then cold hosed her for 20 minutes and hand walked her with her cooler on around the barn and cold osed it again, by now the sweeling looked likea water mellon. So I wrapped it up ina stable wrap and told the barn owners to call me if she looked at all under the weather and that she was on stall rest till further notice. I came out the next day I came out really early and checked her out, swelling was the same and thankfully she wasnt limping! So I cold hosed it put a little liniment on all her legs and stayed with her for about 3 hours just grooming her tending to her leg. ANyways she wound up being fine after 3 weeks of stall rest... well if you recall I said she rolled on me... my hip and whole right leg was pretty sore and brusied but I was usedto painand just shrugged it off and tried to take advil and rest a little more. Well resntly my knee has just been a bloody murdering pain. Cramps up, really swollen and just really painful adn star are a NO NO... I went to the Dr yesterday and as soon as she saw my knee she was like you need to go to a orthipetic... turns out all from this accident, I have loss of mucle mass in my leg, severe fuild build up in and on my knee, so I havea a heck of a time getting onto a orthipetic dr and till thenI can't ride and my mom wont let me even go see my horse cause I have no bike right now and that's out of the question as well as walking a mile on my bad knee. IM SOO MAD AND UPSET! I was just starting to get my show stuff togther for april and all and now I don't even know what going to happen with my knee. Loss of muscle mass? WT..... does it mean surgery? Rehab for my leg? What! I have no answers and no pain killers and I am in so much pain I can't sleep and want to just takea chain saw to it!
So yeah. I havea really messed up knee and the pain is going down into my shin like a really really bad shinsplint.... SO MAD. I wound up not able to go shpping today for my friends baby and my Xmas gift card to Forever21. BLAH
