Yepp...I ate dirt.

So I was riding a VERY green horse and she started bucking while galloping. I sat all the bucks, but my saddle slid to the side and I had to bail. Here'the result..64414_640346369311991_1593662060_n.jpg

EMT showed up and told me to go to urgent care. My organs hurt and i think that gash coulda used stitches lol oh well....

Hopefully not galloping on purpose?

How did you manage to gash yourself right there? I have to say, the worst I've done is road rash on the tush (through my un-ripped breeches no less) and tripled the size of my lips eating mane. Did you bail into something or did the ground get you?

Whoa! That chin looks like it needed stitches. At least put on a butterfly bandage, if you haven't already. I certainly hope you went to some type of medical facility. Especially if EMT were called and they advised you to go. I'm just imagining internal bleeding, broken ribs, concussion, etc.

If I start to see bruising on my torso I'll go to the hospital as that means internal bleeding. Overall though i just feel really banged up. Not so much broken.

Internal bleeding will NOT always show up as bruising. You could think. Oh I'm just sore from the fall and have SERIOUS medical emergency going on. Take it from experience.

If and EMT is telling you to go to the ER...then go. They are not trying to just make the hospital more money. they are looking out for your health. Please please please go get that chin and the rest of you looked at.

*Insert something witty*

Good! Sorry if I sounded harsh or was biting your head off. Wasn't my intent at all. Just want you to take care of yourself. Better to go and get the all clear and get tgat chin cleaned up then to not and potentially have complications down the line
