Day Nine: Any injuries you’ve gotten from riding.
My injuries from riding and/or falls have been minor, thank goodness! Mostly just bumps, bruises and scrapes. I've been rubbed raw from riding in shorts in a saddle. I rode in a dressage lesson once with thin breeches and no half chaps and was rubbed on my leg. It took forever to heal and scarred for a long time, but I can't even find it now. I've been stepped on, but no lasting injuries. Just minor bruises. I've gotten blisters on my hands from riding without gloves in dressage lessons on a horse that was a little heavy on my hands. That's basically it. The only time I was knocked unconscious I wasn't even riding. I was leading a 17hh three year old filly and something spooked her. She knocked me down. I don't know if it was her head hitting mine or my head hitting the ground that knocked me out and gave me a mild concussion. I'm hoping that my list of horse related injuries stays few and mild. :)
