Had a bit of a shock at work today!!! After taking a collection off one of the stallions, I followed him out of the collection area and got an almighty kick off him on the top of my arm. I didn't think I was too close to him but these horses do seem to have a good reach when they fly buck!!!! It hurt so much, at one point I thought I was going to pass out. I wasn't brave enough to take my jumper off for a look at it, but I did eventually have a feel and it was just a big hard lump. I was panicking that if it was broken I was not going to be able to ride my horses and I've got an event on two of them in three days time. After a trip to hospital and an x-ray I was relieved to hear that it wasn't broken. So arm is in a sling and I've got good painkillers so fingers crossed for the weekend.
