I think everyone has some sort of horse horror story... what is yours?

I think everyone has some sort of horse horror story... what is yours?
At my old riding school there was this pony notorious for being a dick pretty much all the time, her name was Mini, but she was really good around beginners. So one day me and my lesson group were out on a trail and this little girl was riding Mini and she freaked out and reared at a wallaby going past. The girl fell off and Mini trampled all over her. The instructors had to come with a truck and a stretcher because the girl was out cold and probably in shock. The next week we were told she had broken both arms, fractured her thigh, had three broken ribs and a really bad concussion, luckily she’s okay and is still riding, but I got a massive confidence blow from watching that, especially since I regularly rode the most spooky horse on the yard.
right before a show, i was schooling for a show at my barn. and it was SUPER muddy! my pony did not like it, so he bucked me off into a big puddle! i got all muddy and sprained my ankle!
