Horses Stepping on your Feet
Alright, everyone and their grandma has probably been stepped on by a horse or two.
What I want to know is how did it happen, how bad was it, and does it still hurt?
I've been walked all over by three horses. 2 of them were green. One is my current prior to becoming mine, and two is this Haffie I worked with. BOTH heavy horses. The third horse was when I was really little. I was by myself and it went to go snatch some hay under a stall door and he put 3/4 of his weight on my little girl toes. Needless to say I refused to ride for an entire week, and got called a sissy for it. He was also some sort of drafty type.
But the other two horses would spook and land on me. Eventually I got steel toed boots but one time I was in my riding shoes and I was uploading him from the trailer. He spooked at a sound outside and slammed hard on my right foot. It hurt like heck but I didn't say a word, nor showed that I was in pain.
But today of all things, it is bothering me! My foot keeps cramping and I have a knot where it happened. It's been almost a year, so I'm hoping it'll go away eventually.
So post away, let's hear of all those feet injuries from pesky hooves!
