I have been trail riding Pippi a lot lately. She seemed bored doing flat work lately and so trail rides it is. Sunday after the mini horse club meeting my friend A and I went on a trail ride. We were having so much fun. I made sure to grab my helmet since we who'd more like be running up hills, and crossing traffic at one point. Pippi mostly followed A's horse but decided she would take te lead once. Then it happened. Pippi spooked at a rock or something, reared, backed and started to spin around. She ended up running into A's horse who got upset and spun around to kick. He ended up kicked me in the ankle and got Pippi with his other leg. Pippi takes off, I fall off and roll down a hill with briers. Pippi ran off and I can already tell my ankle is broken. Poor A had to go search for Pippi while I chilled out on the ground and call my mom. A got Pippi and mom started to hike out to find us. When mom got there she got me up on A's horse who was more chill and A led him out of the trail and mom took Pippi who had broke her riens. Kevin got the truck and trailer and met us. Got horses loaded, and unloaded. Iwas in the truck and mom wanted me to get in the car but since I was comfy Kevin drove me to the hospital. Got X-rays, waited around forever to find out I broke both my Tibia and Fibula right above the ankle. Joy. They out it in a splint and gave me meds (that I ended up being allergic to).
Yesterday I went to the specialist and he was shocked that the hospital sent me home. He informed us that he was a complicated break and that I may need rods put in with pins. Great. He called another doctor who thinks he can push the bones together and cast it. So Wednesday I am going back in, they are putting me under and setting my leg.
Equine Affaire is now out of the question. I am on couch rest untill told otherwise. I am not allowed to even go to school to take my finals for the quarter. Fun fun fun. I am pretty bummed about it all. And in a lot of pain. I probably won't be on much. Can't ride for awhile, or walk, or drive.
