Well, it finally happened! Old "Onehorse" got dumped from his horse a couple of weeks ago with pretty bad results. Long story short, I landed on my right side and shoulder and wound up with a bruised rib (no big deal) and a torn rotator cuff (big deal). The doctor said I have a complete tear of my supraspinatus, and the muscle has already retracted about 1 1/2 cm from the bone. This won't repair itself so... going in for surgery on Tues. a.m. If all goes well, and with lots of physical therapy, I MIGHT be ready to hunt by Oct. or Nov.

Onehorse, sorry to hear of your accident. I hope you have a quick and full recovery. A couple of people I know had the same repair and were back shooting their bows in 5 months. Good thing you didn't break a leg cause you know what they do to a horse when that happens! :sadbanana:Just follow the therapy to the letter, they know what their doing. Let us know of your progress.

I'll be thinking about you and your advice as I go through this. Best of luck to you, too, with your surgery.

Sorry about that. Maybe it will make you feel better to consider the shape I am in. This picture is from 1965 and if you will note, I am already wearing a harness on my right shoulder. Through the years and four surgeries, I have to hold my shoulder in tight when Isneeze or it will dislocate. Look forward to the future and good luck...oh, sell the horse :lol: By the way, I won the bareback at riding at Baton Rouge on this horse-Big John. I thought it was poetic.

scribe, you are one tough son-of-a-gun. I was pretty lucky in the little "bruise" I got compared to you. I guess you are a better rider than I, and maybe way smarter because, as soon as I am better, I'm getting back on that critter.:crazy: Actually, he's a good horse, and this whole thing was mostly my fault for not paying attention and realizing we were in a situation that had potrential for a blow up.:wallbash:

Onehorse- I spent 25-years breaking things and getting them put back together. My right arm is almost all replacement parts. But it sure beat working for a living and left me with some great memories and real problem getting out of bed in the mornings. :rolleyes:

This the famed Necklace at Pueblo, CO in 1970. Somewhere around here I have the buckle from that rodeo. A week later, she bucked me off big time at Sterling, CO.

scribe,
Looks like you and I are about the same age (68 years for me), but I didn't start riding until I was 60. My wife, who has been riding since she was two, is an excellent rider, horsewoman and teacher:yes:. I've never had so much fun in my whole life until I started riding. So, if this surgery is the price for it, I say it was worth it. Sounds like you might feel the same way. Thanks for your encouragement. I'll be thinking about you during my recovery. God bless.
