So yesterday I was out with my husband and a group of like 15 other people. The ride was going pretty good. The horses were all a little hot but nothing to bad. We had ridden about 3 miles or so when I got to close to my husbands gelding and he kicked my mare really hard. She started bucking really bad. We think I hit my head on the top of her head but nobody is really sure. Any way so I came off and did a summer salt over her shoulder. I ended up cutting my nose on both sides next to my eyes. There was blood every where. The bad part was that no one go cell phone service. So we had a couple of people ride out and pony my horse out. Luckily I never passed out although it was close.
They ended up putting me on Zues and his owner walked me out. I felt so bad for ruining every ones ride. I spend 6 hours in ER. I got so lucky. The CAT scan showed I didn't break my nose or have any brain injuries. But it did show that I fractured my C6 vertebrae. I got lucky and only broke the little spiney process that sticks out and didn't fracture near my spinal cord.
Sorry for the long crazy story. I am scared that I am going to be too traumatized to get back on.
As anyone here been able to get over a bad fall?
Sorry if there are a lot of miss spellings. My eyes are still pretty swollen.
