The entire outside of my left arm :P had a disagreement with a mare (who woulda thought) a couple years ago , a few crow hops and a spin or two later I ate arena dirt and she took off. She was sold not long after (BO's horse, I would NEVER have sold that gorgeous beast) and I miss her like crazy.

I have one picture and a scar to remind me of her.

A few years ago, I was unbridling my impatient Thoroughbred mare when she tossed her head and landed a tooth right beneath my lower lip. It only needed 5 or 6 stitches, but I still have a faint scar from it.

I have a long vertical one on my leg (about 4 inches long) from when I was putting a tarp on the shavings trailer (20 ft long flatbed with 8 ft tall sides) and slipped. I slid down the side and the trailer light scraped the skin off of my leg as I fell. It happened to be during a street sale, and the neighbors were somewhat shocked at all of the blood.

I don't have any scars, however I do have a permenantly numb right foot (from the thrid toe, aross to the little toe side of my foot), from being trodden/pressed down on hard. You can see the veins and some 'purple' area's still when it is wet (when it is dry there are some pink areas where it is numb).

I was lucky I was wearing my leather riding boots (which are torn a bit from where his hoof was).

I also have a messed up hip from a bad fall, after my horse bolted during a warm up. I initally tore some muscles, and had bone bruising (including being on crutches - I am not a pity sore me person at all, yet had to have 4 ambo's help me out of my own car, after mum drove me to the hospital and parked in the emergency area, as I could not move at all, my teeth were chattering and I was shaking, I couldnt even talk I was in that much pain).

My hip is back to 'normal' now, I can mount without the mounting block again, the bruising is still there (did it on the 2nd of April this year), but still my muscles are not quite..right.. they are sore and stiff nowadays in that hip, especially after a riding lesson/ride.

That's all I have for now , not really scars on the outside as such, compared to scars on the inside... I'm sure I'll get many more throughout my life though... kind of a given with such powerful and large animals.

I have a scar from my tendon tearing in my left ankle and another from a different time on my forearm from a step on mark. (Broken radius) I went off and under my arm got stepped on..That was the worst.
The ankle was from mounting while horse was walking off and not standing...Had to have surg to have it sown back together...

I can't show a picture or anything, but two years ago my friends horse bucked me off and I hit the step up and then the ground (rocks) I never broke the skin, but my whole right calf was black. NASTY. Apparently something caused my muscles to rip/split and they never healed. I now have a dent in my calf that never healed. It's a little numb in the surrounding area, but otherwise it's fine.

I also have scarred veins on my right foot from when my horse stepped on me pretty good. It pretty much looks like my veins are super blue in that area of my foot. It's been like that for about 4 years. It doesn't hurt or anything.

Trained
I have a few, yup.

I have one on my leg from where my mare cut the barrel to close and slammed into it and took a chunk of skin out. I do believe we won that class, though! LOL
I have one on my inner thigh from a gelding I was training that bucked me off and ran me over.
I have several on my ankle from where I got stuck in a lasso and drug for several feet before it finally (thankfully) let go.
I have a huge indent in my muscle from being ran over by a young gelding I was walking when a car honked the horn and scared the bee-jesus out of him.
And I have a sperm shaped scar on my hand from when a horse I was unloading smashed my hand between his head and the divider in the trailer. That's my favourite.

That last one made me laugh :)

Oh, gosh. I've got scars on my left wrist where I had surgery after I broke it (4 screws and 1 metal pin to keep it all together), not to mention some scars from the road rash and the stretch mark where the bone almost poked through my wrist when I landed. All that happened when I was 9.

I used to have scars all down my back from where I fell from a horse that was galloping down a caliche road and I skidded down the road on my back, but they've mostly all faded now.

I've got a nice scar on my forehead where I got 7 stitches after having a bronc run into me and knock me into the fence (it was the fence that got me).

I've got a small scar just below my right eyebrow from a rock that I landed on when I came off a greenie last fall. I've also got some fading road rash scars down my cheek from that one.

Also from the same fall, though it's not really a scar, I've got a bump on the top of my right shoulder where it hit the ground and dislocated my collarbone...even though it's all been put back in place, the bump is still there.

And, I've got various other scars from cuts and scrapes given by anything from trees to barbed wire to my own knife.
