I had a horse throw a tree at me. I had to stop and tie her up for a second, a critter was moving around in the woods, she spooked, and ripped the tree out of the ground. She then swung it around wildly, it hit me right in the ribs and it knocked the wind out of me and bruised my ribs. Once I was able to get up I was able to stop her and release the poor tree lol. She managed to avoid injuring herself though :)

Nothing dramatic here...

I tripped on a crack in the sidewalk while walking my dog and broke my arm. REALLY?

OK, here's mine, I was getting on Bert from the mounting block in the summer, and managed to burst the bakers cyst in the back of me knee, trouble was I was already on the way up, so had to continue the movement so ended up sitting on her. TG she stood like a rock and I managed to slide back off onto the block, but then I was stuck, fortunately DS and DH were just coming out of the house they put her away for me and dug me out my old crutches, I was non weight bearing for nearly a week.

People were asking did you fall off and hurt yourself, I just had to say, just the reverse actually.

My sister-in-law was teaching me how to lunge my horse, we couldn't find the lunge whip so she told me to be very, very careful swinging the end of the lunge line at her because of the hard donut on the end hurts when you wack yourself in the knee with it.

Well I didn't wack myself in the knee..... no I bopped myself in the head and knocked myself out. Came to, lying on the ground with my horse standing over me trying to figure out what was wrong with her stupid human. My sister-in-law STILL laughs at me about that!

I don't own a single lunge line with a donut, I cut them all off right after I purchase them!

That's great!

They do some idiotic things sometimes. I watched my grandpa get knocked out once by a horse wearing a ladder. Crazy mare was in to eat, ran through the barn aisle, he had a ladder in front of one of the stalls to change a light bulb, stupid mare put her head in it and then went berserk. My dad did get her caught & the ladder removed before she did major damage to herself or barn.

Mine is a doozy - We live in N Michigan, and although the forests are incredible, the pasture quality is somewhat sparse. (she gets an abundance of good quality hay to compensate, though!) Ever since I've had her home, (July), I would stand out with her holding the lead rope twice a day so she could graze in more grassy areas on our property. Such a sweet, peaceful time, and we would walk around for an hour....bliss!
One day, (Aug. 2nd - I'll not forget it), I had been running errands for most of the day, and although I was tired, I thought I'd walk her out for at least 20 min. or so - 20 minutes couldn't hurt, and then I could take a little nap before starting dinner and evening chores....
Within 10 min of our grazing time, a rabbit scurried out of the brush right near her head, and she shot her head up and did a standing spook, but unfortunately, I was holding the slack with my left hand, and the very large, loose loop tightened instantly around my left ring finger. My horse recovered from her scare immediately, but as we were standing there, I'm looking at the finger, and noticed it was swelling fast around my wedding rings - I then moved it up and down a little, and realised, it was broken! Very little pain - (I'm still shocked - wait 'til you read further!) So.... it had been only 10 min, but my mare was sweet enough to be led back to the pasture, went in and with my right hand, got a sandwich baggy full of ice, got my purse, fed the rabbit, locked up the house, (my husband was @ work - research tech on remote lakes), drove myself to the hospital (40 mi round trip), with my right hand. Meantime, the swelling around my wedding rings was getting bad quick! They cut them off, (no pain meds), took x-rays, and then I was sent home with a referral to the orthopaedic office, but up here there's only 1 office, so it took 2 weeks before I was seen!! But I was out in the pasture the next day, and with prescription motrin, did all my usual feed/chores, etc.! Then I had to have surgery (bone had healed) with 2 teeny screws, and still, very little held me from doing everything!! The worst was having to go without my wedding rings, which, when they were repaired, went from a size 6 to a 10 1/2 in the end...... Believe it or not, I saddled and rode her 12 times during this weird episode! :)

My lunge line didn't come with one, thank goodness! :)

well i have another one that i keep doing.... well last winter i wanted to ride my moms TB/Clyd gelding i had my dads heavy boots (like 4 pounds (maybe more)each) on because it was cold out. so i told my mom to step back im getting on, she took a few steps back and i do a little running start and jumped... well i didnt get far and i was barely on and i crashed into his side with my ribs. it didnt hurt that bad at first and i had my mom help me up after sitting there my ribs started to hurt and the next day ifelt sick and if anything touched them heavyer then my tee shirt it really hurt. so we went to the doctor and i had inflamed ribs.

i still havent learned, last week i was seeing what my three year old would do if i tryed to get on the right side (not much) hes only 15hh (at most) and i kept jumping on my stomach and after a while it started to hurt. so i probley keep doing what i do and inflame my ribs.

Not horse related, but I was probably 11 when I was riding double on a 4 wheeler behind my best friend (I know not the brightest but we were always on their personal property) and we went over a bump without her telling me.. Turns out I was holding on too tight and sprained BOTH my wrists at once. Worst few weeks ever not being able to do anything without help.
