So.. yesterday the weather was really nice, so we figured we would go out on trail. Speckles is terrible on trail, so I took Chester (a chunky chestnut quarter horse) out instead. Everything was going great, we were jumping everything, and galloping the whole trail. Well, then he got a great idea; "hey mom! I'm going to smash your knee into two trees at a gallop!"... man did that hurt. I really thought I broke my knee, but i'm the kind of person who can be dying and still need to ride,so we continued.
long story short, no broken knee! It's just bruised and hurts like no other. Moral Of The Story;
don't let your horsey smash your knee into a tree!
