I was dragged around by a horse last may. The incident ended when my head struck a fence post hard enough to break the rope (and my skull) attaching me to the horse >_< It began when a spooked horse with a lunge line (30' long rope attached to head) on took off like mad and the rope got stuck around my left wrist. its been a long loooong recovery, but asides from scars and seizures im all better now

Scans of polaroids taken in the E.R.

Forty staples, in case you were wondering

and the horse ran through a fence


So anyhow thats my story

Dude - I am so glad you are better. Those are some pretty graphic pictures. I bet the recovery was long like you said.

Glad you are all right.

I'm happy that you are still with us.
As ugly as the situation was, it could have been much worse.

OMG I'm glad you are better now. You must have had some sort of angel or something watching out for you that day.

Interesting viewpoint... think he needs a better angel if true. His was having a beer and watching strippers at the time apparently.

Glad to hear your OK. That's one of those accidents you wouldn't ever anticipate. I wish you well on your continued recovery, hope the seizures go away for you.

Was the horse hurt in the incident?

Sorry to hear about it and glad you are recovering.

But wondering, you were lunging the horse or riding one on a lunge line?

I was NOT riding the horse just lunging it. she spooked and bolted and the rope got stuck on my wrist. though i dont remember this is just what i was told. It wasnt the (dumb) horses fault. It wasnt my fault. just a freak accident. thanks for the kind words everyone and yes the seizures are subsiding. still get headaches frequently though.

One thing is for sure, next time you tell someone, "I need that like a hole in the head", they'll know you're serious!

Get well soon.

Woah, that's messed up. I'm glad you're getting better.

I can see two definate pluses to this experience: 1) You have something very few people have: a photo of their own brain. And 2) you can now win the "What's the worst injury you ever had" conversation every time.

THis is why most insurance companies classify riding, working, or training horses in the same category as extreme sports like skydiving

As am I, but no kidding, horses are scary. A good friend of my wife had not shown up for work for a couple of days during the summer, apparently she had been grooming a pony when it kicked her in the head. She was alone, so she stayed unconscious in the corral for 3 days before they found her. She died 4 days later.

No thanks to horsepower I can't fully control.

Ouch - and I thought I had it bad when I fell off while show jumping and went through the fence! Darn muddy stirrup iron!

But glad to hear you are okay - I guess that is why it was always drilled into me to lunge with a helmet and never have a fixed loop in the line!

What type of riding do you do?

That is one scary incident!! And, glad you are doing better and hope for a full recovery for both you and the horse.
Now, someone explain 'lunging' for me please. Allowing them to gallop around you in circles on a long line? I'm not familar with the term.

btw, this is one of the things that is always in the back on my mind concerning the internet. You've been here since 2003 I believe, and I remember your posts from back when, but this is the 1st I've seen on this accident. I always wonder about how my internet aquaintences would ever know if anything serious happened to me. Would they think I just fell off the earth? Except for Jane, none of the rest of my family knows of the importance I place regarding all here at PFF, so likely as not, no one would ever know unless Jane passed the word on, and even she doesn't have access to some of my military forums, especially those whose members are my old Marine friends from Vietnam days.
Gonna have to think about this a bit.

You pretty much nailed it. except its not supposed to be just a mad gallop, they should walk and trot or whatever you tell them to. Its purpose is to get them warmed up before you ride.

Myself I just trail ride for fun. My wife is into eventing and jumping though.

Thanks so much for the concern everyone,
Tyler
