I got bucked off a pony, he then ran me over and kicked my face. To this day, it locks up and causes me pain, inability to eat solid foods on some days, and can't open my mouth to speak properly occasionally.

I got kicked in my chest and right on my knee on the same day. The vet was out and I went ahead and asked him to sedate Hero because I needed to clean his sheath really well and he hates it. When I first got him he was completely comfortable with me cleaning his sheath and then one day when I was doing it he started to throw fits and kick like crazy. Therefore the vet sedated Hero. I was overly excited about finally getting Hero's sheath cleaned well. That I didn't wait long enough until hero was basically really knocked out. Me and my friend rushed in there and went to work. He had his head down and really relaxed until I touched his sheath and he became alert. He was kicking but I was dodging them and pushing them away and gave Hero a good whack. Finally Hero got one on my chest but I saw it coming and somewhat got out of the way. I should of stopped then and let Hero calm down more. But no i'm, a go getter and don't like to step down from a "challenge". The second time he got me I wasn't even paying attention because I was making sure Hero wasn't going to kick my friend that I didn't see him bring his leg up. He hit me squared in the knee. The sound of the hit sounded like his hoof hit a wall. I decided to just walk out at that time. I looked down at my knee and at first thought something was out of place because there was a big bump on the side of knee. But no it was just swelling. Anyway I just had a nasty bruise which was a nice conversation piece at school. haha. By the time I came back into the stall my friend was still doing his sheath and Hero was basically asleep.

Wow. These are some seriously important stories to remind you that it can happen anywhere and to anyone.

I am very lucky to say that in 14 years I have never been kicked. I've been thrown and had one fall on me, been stepped on by hooves, and for the first time this year I have been bitten. But never kicked. (PLEASE LET IT REMAIN THAT WAY!!)

I've only ever been kicked once, and it was while I was mounting. I had my left foot in the stirrup and was "bouncing" to hop on when I was cowkicked in my thigh.. Flexible little bugger can find a way to kick anyone if he wants.

Ouch! Those face kicks sound and LOOK horrible!

I was kicked square in the lower back .. left a hoofprint exactly centered over the scar I have for my spinal fusion .. eeeeek!

That one scared the ___ outta me.

We were in the pasture with a couple yearling arab fillies when one ran past being naughty and my reaction was to turn my back on her in that moment ... POW!

Not a kick, but I was petting a Brahma bull one day standing to the side of his head as he ate grass. He lifted and slung his head at a fly and his horn caught me right between the legs... Can you say HEMATOMA! .. geeez.

Lower pelvis and thigh in the same shot. I only had my horse for a week and tried to take him for a very short trail ride. A red bike popped out of nowhere and he bucked and twisted I hit the ground. I jumped to try to catch him and he kicked me good. After I could breathe again I then had to walk back to the barn. Luckily he was there lol.

Wow, some of you guys have really taken it! My worst kick was in the back of the head, and I'm not sure it even qualifies as a kick. My little grey yearling, China, reared up and caught me in the back of the head with a fore hoof.

It wouldn't ave been so bad, except that I had already fractured my skull twice before in diving board accidents where I cracked my head in exactly the same spot. When she got me, the world twirled around in a gentle circle, and I hit the dirt.

Everybody said it was very gracefully done...
