Ouch, well I'm glad you're okay otherwise! That could have been a really bad ending! I've fallen on my head/neck and on my front but I think falling on my back would not only knock the wind out of me, but really do some damage to my spine.

The old horse I learned to ride on.
When I was like 10. He stepped on my foot, realized he was standing on my foot, sooo.. he pushed down harder.
Yeah he was fun to learn on. He liked to ignore your requests, find a tree with a low branch and wipe you off. Or, ask him to canter he'd rock his head and zig zag and hop around. If you could get him going that fast, that is. Haha.

He was lazy. And stubborn. Actually pony-like in personality even though he's like 15.2

Ah yes! I do remember the time I had a lovely horse-shoe shaped bruise on my foot! I was halfway through putting on her rug when our neighbour shot of a gun ( think he was shooting pigeons) and she spooked and took off, using my foot as a springboard! OUCH!

There was another time when our naughty little pony pushed past me to get to some grass - I'm pretty sure I broke my little toe because I could barely walk for a few days, and I'd get stabbing pains in it for the next three months or so Luckily, both times have had no lasting effects!

I had at least two close calls last weekend... One was when the mare stepped on my heel, but luckily my foot was moving forward, and my toes, but I was able to slide them out in time. She doesn't know personal space!
My friend NEVER wears shoes, even when she's riding she rides barefoot. Also when she's training her yearling..

I've been stepped on a few times, but one I have in mind was from total stupidity on my part. TOTAL, TOTAL, TOTAL stupidity. The worst part is I totally knew better. I was just being an ignoramus. Someone please tell me that they too have these moments in order to make me feel better. I had been working with Drifter for a while and had just finished exercising another horse. I had taken off my boots and was walking around my car barefoot when the woman I was working for asked me to lead Drifter from his stall to the pasture.

Grabbed him. Knew he didnt crowd, so stupid TOTALLY IGNORANT (really going to beat this fact) me decided to just go get him. Why waste with boots right? About halfway between his stall and pasture a truck backfired. He jumped sideways and landed on my foot but thankfully got off. I praise the lord every day that he got off as quick as he did. And he managed to somehow not put all of his weight down. At least it didn't feel like he did. God was looking out for me. As it was, it still massively bruised and hurt like heck for a few months.

Theres a horse at camp, Saturn who will step on your foot and then not budge. It usually happens when campers are cantering and someone is waiting with the line (they canter one at a time as they're mostly newbies, a staff waits with the line up of horses waiting to canter just in case) I've had camper pulling on the oppisate reign kick and clucking while I push on him. Never moved an inch. I figured out to punch him in the neck, not hard just enough force to say "ow! Get of my foot you stupid lovable pony!!"
And a few other times by other horses but for the most part they move off right away.

I've had my feet stepped on once by a horse, twice by my old High School steer.

The horse (now my current lease) wasn't acting naughty or anything. My foot was just in the wrong place at the wrong time. He moved his foot right on top of mine and didn't seem to notice! I was pushing him for a good 30 seconds before he moved his foot again. Maybe it was subtle revenge for something I did that he didn't like.

In high school my lovely 1,000lb hunk of steer got my toes twice that I recall. Both times he realized he was stepping on something odd and squishing and quickly moved his foot..

Fortunately none of these events left me with breaks, bruises, or long term pain. I got over it within minutes.

Well I'm glad it wasn't serious! Feet tend to be in the wrong place at the wrong time!
