    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!

    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!
