    One time while adjusting the saddle, I had my stirrup hung up on the horn when Indie moved right as I tightened the girth- the stirrup got knocked down and smacked me RIGHT on the nose! It hurt so bad I fell backwards... so surprised I didn't break it

    My bf laughed his behind off when I told him what happened. For some reason, he thought I was thrown into wall. However, he's never been hit by the head of a horse and doesn't know it actually hurts.

    Done this way more times than I care to admit, but usually when I'm unsaddling and I forget I have the stirrup around the horn, so when I slide the saddle off, it smacks me. Really hope I don't do that now because I have heavy metal stirrups on my new saddle.

    Ouchh..... just picturing the thought of metal stirrups smacking my nose is giving me mental pain! Jeez, I hope you're careful

    I had open heart surgery when I was 11 and when they did that they had to cut my sternum to get to my heart, well apparently it healed funky or something because I got bucked off Romeo and it kinda "Popped" away from the other side... I am making it sound worse than it is, I can't figure out better wording... It didn't hurt when it happened but it did like a week after. I have gone to the doctor 2 times. The first was when I initially had the pain and the second was like 3 weeks ago because I hurt it again lifting a Labrador into a tub at work...
    Kind of a ridiculous injury.

    Hey! You can tell somebody that you were riding a rank bronc and he fell on you and you rode through the pain! ;D

    I made the idiotic mistake of walking into the barn where silly mr.Dusty snuck into, and it shocked me...so I spanked him...and he kicked me in the face...lmfao.

    However, it's a great excuse. If I trip or say/do something stupid, I can say "hey! Back off! I got kicked in the noggin by a freaking horse!"

    One of the girls here at work did the same thing. She didn't break it but it was black and blue and she hobbled for weeks. She had climbed on to the fence rail and then he moved away and she flopped down on the ground!

    Dumbest, stupidest, most idiotic injury ever?

    ...I was bareback on my old horse, loose in the pasture. He was standing totally still and then spooked at something, wheeled, and went to fly off across the pasture. I stayed where I was.

    Pulled muscles, big bruise across my ribs, and a minor concussion (of which I have had several).

    Have also been hit in the head by a horse's head. And kicked in the head. And chest.

    I was sitting on the ground trying to work on the bottom of a tube gate. My favorite ram (a huge pet) walks over and was just standing there listening to me cuss at the nut I couldn't budge. I looked up right as he butted me square between the eyes. I don't think I was totally knocked out but it was pretty close. I've made it a point since then to stay on my feet in the presence of rams!

    This is an interesting post!

    Okay well this was 3 to 4 years ago 4 to 5 months after me getting my gelding. We werent really gettin galong the first year and a half. But we went out and I desided to get on him before I got on my TWH on a beautiful (calm) winter day, we were walking alon walked about 30 to 40 feet when he bucked and I went up and off of him I probley was 13 feet in the air and landed on snow plus some ice I had a puffy coat and tought it just hurt, my other gelding came to me and helped me out. Mom took things off of them and dad came. He got gas and then we got a car wash THEN went to the ER. I got a clean break close to my shoulder.
