LOL, Injuries just come along with horses and the outdoors! So totally worth it though! I don't think I"m that accident prone as some of you on here, since I've never broken a bone (which is actually pretty amazing, because once my horse stepped on my HAND after all fall, with his horseshoe on, and it was on PAVEMENT). I've gotten bitten, kicked, scratched, pulled off the horse by my sister while riding double... but it's totally worth it, and I miss it now that I don't have access to any horses. I'll take the bruises if it gets me another horse!
You forgot one thing though - rough, calloused barn hands!
