My horse almost killed me!

I tried to start this in more detail but it got too long, anyway I got kicked square in the chest by my 3 yr old gelding today, one of the scariest things I have ever lived through (my friend wanted to call an ambulance), partially my fault but I also think he was an *******, too. I am really sore! I'm really glad I didn't duck, or I would not be posting this.

So what exactly happened?

Horses kick for one of two reasons:

They feel threatened
They are following through on a previous warning

Thanks, the boss mare left on a walk with her lessee and her teacher, we (a friend and I) were keeping the boys occupied while they were gone, and on their way back the mare screamed and the boys went nuts. I was headed over to the gate to tell them to bring her in a different (safer) way but Cody charged past me, did a 360 and then nailed me! I saw his *** in my face and knew what that meant, but I was trapped by a fence and had nowhere to go. I was NOT able to do anything at that point, but my friend put both horses out of the yard, quite severely!

Glad youre okay.

Its always an eye opener when you see steel shod hooves, connected to a 1000lb animal coming at your face....to say the least

*Insert something witty*

Did you get checked out? Being kicked square in the chest can be dangerous, better safe than sorry.

Well I'm glad you're ok but agree that you should get checked out.

Were you just chilling with them in the pen loose?

I hope somebody kicked that horse into next week.
And I also hope you've been looked at by a professional.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

Please go get checked out by a doctor! That's a bad place to get kicked, you could have internal bleeding.
