That sucks. Something similar happened to me once. I was in my playset, showing one of the neighborhood kids how safe and not scary it was up on the upper level and in the covered slide, when I got attacked by a hive of wasps who had made their home up there.

Zero_Zero, sometimes you have to get around a horse...better around their back end then under their neck. "Never walk behind a horse" is something horse people tell non-horse people when they don't know what they are doing. The closer you are to the horse's butt, the least likely they are to kick (because they know you are there), the least likely you are to get hurt (because you are too close for them to make contact high on your body). Know the horse, the horse will know you. Still OP, sometimes unexpected accidents happen. Sorry about that, mate. Hope you're up and about again.

Trust me getting kicked doesnt make you scared of horses. Ive had many accidents with horses in my 8 years around them and still love them with my whole heart

#5 Cowboy: No animal is completely harmless if trained. I know of race horses that have spent their entire life training that have bitten off a man's fingers. Some horses are just skittish and react in negative ways.

I'd agree but I have a scar on the side of my face that says otherwise.All my life around horses and got kicked in the face.They are not harmless even if you know what you're doing

Horses are big animals. If you don't know what you're doing, they can be dangerous. If they're untrained, or frightened, they can be dangerous. In anything we do though, theres a risk involved. Horses have a high risk for us being injured. When you know what you're doing, you can pretty much avoid most incidents though. I mean, accidents happen and even the best horse person can get injured, but that doesn't mean that horses are to blame. It's like having a pet lion. It may like you, and love you, but if it's hungry it's still going to try to eat you. A horse may be trained, it may be respectful, but of it gets scared, there's still a chance it will injure you.

No, you really don't. If anyone ever tells you to stand directly behind a horse while grooming them, you should laugh and make them do it for you. You should never, under any circumstances, stand directly behind a horse (or cow for that matter). Any grooming or picking of the hooves is easily accomplished from the side.

Even then, you're encouraged to touch the horses leg and talk to them all the way to the side and while cleaning it because it's simple to spook them. Perhaps the OP had the bad luck of the horse moving and kicking them, too.

man, that is so fucking painful. you just have to watch it around different horses. some of them get really nervous when people are around so could have been a better choice of horses. anyway, hope you get better :)

Wow. I feel your pain--literally. I've been kicked before even by the most docile of horses. Sometimes it's just bad luck that something spooked them. Tho you had to have been pretty far off (or just at a bad angle) when you got kicked to get a broken leg. The closer you are the better you're off to only getting a bruise... Get better soon. :)
