Ugh. I have tiny scars on my chin from getting road rash on my face after being bucked off in a sand arena. I also have a big scar on my knee from when a horse collapsed on me, fell on his side on top of my knee, and I was pinned underneath him. My knee split down the middle and I had serious joint damage. It sucked. As for unseen injuries, a torn rotator cuff, broken fingers/toes, broken nose, internal bleeding and kidney damage due to being kicked, and a concussion. I love horses, but horse related injuries suck!

Strength is not defined by physical ability. It is determined by your actions and the compassion of your soul.

Even though this thread is quite old, I thought I'd still post mine. I have a dent-like scar on my ankle bone where a horse I was leading spooked and trampled me, as well as a road rash thingy on my tummy by my hip where a horse I was riding bolted on a gravel road. I eventually fell under her and tripped her up so she fell on top of me and slid along for a bit with me under her. It's probably incredible half of us are still alive, there's been so many falls that could have ended very badly. Luckily I'm young so I still bounce!

Yes! I have a lovely bruise on my left thigh from my horse biting me... three years ago! The colour has nearly gone now but you can still see a shadow and where the bruise was and feel the damage to the tissue underneath my skin.

He never did that again...

I have a scar on my left ring finger from when a was scrambling to grab the horn. My mare decided she was going to jump a small creek (more like a run-off channel for rain!) like she was in the frickin Olympics! As soon as I felt her rock back I grabbed it as fast as I could and the nail on my right hand got me!
