oh no she was completely fine after that. no breaks amazingly just bruised ribs and bruised legs lol

after we got her loose we walked her out the emergency door in front, took her back around and she loaded right back up. havnt had another problem with her since.

Im glad that i have been desensetizing my horse by lying all over his body on top of him, hopefully he wont ever get scared from me touching him some where like his flank or bum.

After Batman knocked over the pole on the oxer we were jumping I got off and put it off as usual, but I was lazy when trying to remount so I used a near by log (XC attempt by others!) to jump up from his right flank...bad idea. He was already gawking at the Heffers, trying to decide if he wanted to be brave, so even after I grabbed the reins and put one of my feet in the stirrups, when I landed behind the saddle, he spooked a bit forward, I stayed on by gripping with my legs, but my heels dug into his flanks ( where the strap goes to mak bucking horses buck) and he went wild! I stayed on for about 5 bucks, them I went to Tuck-n-roll, before I was flung into a fence. I tucked. no roll! I landed on my face and did a summersault over my own head! I got up, and with supervision, jumped back on with only a sprained finger, or so I thought.
Next day I couldnt even sit up my neck and upper back were killing me so much! My parents brought me to urgent care, where they did X-rays and found out that I didn't have a broken neck, and that the disks in between my vertebre have 'extra cushioning' that saved my neck from all of the impact that it took! I just had Torticollisis in my neck for the next week, but now I'm back to riding!
If you read this all that's awesome! I tend to make massive bodies of writing, so congrats for being patient with my explaination!
Whats the worst injury you've ever received around (or on!) horses?
It's a toss up between a smashed under a fallen horse lower leg or the broken clavicle. I was lucky not to lose my lower leg, it was smashed flat. But the broken clavicle was SOOOOO painful.
