Cool Not happy- Horse related injuries!!

Okay so a few weeks ago I was getting my horse from its shared field with 3 other horses, a cob a thoroughbred, a pony and my tb cross.


The cob was standing at the gate, hungry I guess? So I opened the gate to get my horse and the cob charges at me! This may sound silly but he literally ran me over and trampled on my leg, only to get to the fresher grass!

Do you think this was his fault, his owners?
Horses shouldnt be doing that, its not in their nature to 'run' people over?!

P.s: lets hear about your injuries!!

Below: my leg.

Ouch that looks nasty

As to 'fault' I say it was an accident.

How to prevent another one, well IDK, is he poorly trained, do you need to brush up on your skills, should he be in another pasture?? Impossible to say really

Ahh.. that looks painful.

Not good situation but rather common in shared paddocks. I always carry a long rope with me and if a horse comes to close I swing it at them. They need to respect space around the gate. Perhaps go in a few times (maybe even go through the fence) and if the cob comes close send it away until it understands you are a no go zone.

I hate shared paddocks. My growing horse phobia gets worse :(

I was injured about 5 weeks ago, my horse was tied and panicked, thrashed his head around and my head got in the way resulting in 12 stitches. You can see the dirt is on my face in the first pic :)

Oh I wish I kept pics of mine! About 5 yrs ago I got bucked off my sisters totally wild horse (my fault). She spooked and took off and somehow I ended up dangling on her side hanging onto the saddle horn. As I was dangling her hoof ran down my leg and then I fell off into a barbed wire fence. I don't actually remember any of this but I woke up laying on the ground, my entire lower leg was black and I was all cut up. Ended up with all sorts of soft tissue and nerve damage that still has not healed.

I feel your pain!

I was galloping along a barbed wire fence line when a piece of leather on my saddle broke. I flew off and landed in the fence, and I was actually hanging in the air because my clothes were tangled in the wire.

It was very painful! I needed stitches, probably, but I opted not to. I just sucked it up and couldn't lie on my left side for awhile.
