That's a great way to end a ride...

Today I was riding my horse in the indoor arena at the barn. He had been off for a few days so he was a little hyper. I had just finished loping/ cantering to the right when I asked for a walk, as soon as we started walking Freddy reached down to scratch his leg. But what I didn't realize was that the german martingale I had on him had touched the ground. When Freddy went to stand up straight he stood on the martingale and shot his head right up, and directly towards my face. We collided and I ended up with a bloody nose, which I am sure is slightly broken.
Anyone else have any silly stories??

No, my parents just told me to shrug it off. There isn't really anything I could do anyway except ice and pain meds. Thanks for the concern. :)

Ouch! Noses are very tender when bumped! I hope it heals quickly!
My silly story would be: ( if you don't like boring stories-skip)
One time when wanting for my class at a show, I was holding my horse outside of the arena. The horse was a "rented" horse for the show. I was very inexperienced and didn't see his head come up to mine as he was swinging at a fly. I got his head to my jaw. Large bruise and I think secretly happy horse.
Not a very exciting story I know. :)

Chocolate is the answer. Who cares what the question is.

I had my nose cracked by a horse's head, and my eyebrow split that way too.

I wonder if you had the martingale too loose? I guess it's possible for the hrose to step on the lines even if it is properly done up.

... Beverley walked into a wall once with me on her! honestly no idea how it happened, she had been under saddle for a while at this point so she knew how to bend (ie: not walking into walls), it was like she fell asleep at the wheel. We were circling at the far end of the indoor and coming up to the corner I was asking her to bend like "hey wake up!" she just kept going straight into the wall, bumped it with her face and took a step back like "oh! There's a wall there!". We kept going after this and she was fine, it never happened since. I didn't hear the end of that one for some time lol.

Srsly, if you feel that you've damaged your nose, do get it checked, if at all possible! I JUST read about a kid who accidentally got knifed in the eye, his parent said never mind till days later it was clearly infected, THEN off to doctor, & kid lost the eye!

I got bucked off and landed on my nose once. And I got hit in the head by a temperamental horse I was bridling.
