Broke my arm. bucked off!
« on: February 07, 2014, 02:05:15 PM »
Had a great day of riding and almost done. we decided on one last trail before they finish logging it. We call it "The Trotting Trail", hence we were not walking it. Trotted nicely along, jumping logs and must have just jumped the last log. I pulled my horse back to a trot and for some odd reason he bucked hard (english saddle) and I went off, my shoulder hit first, then I felt dirt in my face. I was last so it took them a few seconds to realize I wasn't with my horse. I could hear them talking about it,"did she get up?" "Can u see her?" "where?" "How?" I tried to get up but I kept hitting a branch with my helmet, the heck with it I'll wait for help, my arm wouldn't work either.  Very dazed, everyone's faces looked different. "Do you want an ambulance?" my sister asked but I said "no way, (maybe not the language I used) I'd rather walk."  It took a while to get me on my feet, I passed out once from the pain. Then as long as we kept moving I didn't feel too faint. Walked a mile to get to the closed gate and waited for the rest to trailer the horses and drive to where I came out. .Drove me and one horse trailer full of horses to the emergency and met my husband there. My sister took the hoses home and my friend stayed There were 8 of us in two trailers and everyone did their part. Good practice for everyone in this kind of situation. I broke the neck of the upper arm, therefore they can't cast it.  Out of work for a while, no desk work on a farm. Not the "last" memory of that trail, but unforgettable none-the-less!

Just before we cut into the trail off the new logging road.

I think any major injury I ever had was from a horse......   Sorry for the accident.  Glad it wasn't worse.

No cast....just a sling, can't even get it signed.  :( Broke too high in the arm. It's been a week and today I feel a lot better! Yes! I'd rather break something on a horse and walk a mile out, than in traffic any day. I'll try get a pic to post.  Thanks.

My hunting partner and I have had a lot of horse wrecks but no serious injuries YET.  I hate to say it but we know it is only,a matter if time when you hunt in rough country.  Glad you are OK.
