Dear joe joe, please consider yourself lucky that it was your shoulder and not your head. On that note, since you described yourself as lazy (when you mount your horse without proper safety gear) ie; with lead rope and halter upon returning him for turn out, my presumption is that no helmet is donned either. Perhaps you ought to visit a closed head injury rehab unit in your area. Never ever get on your horse without a helmet. Please consider your family and friends in these lazy moments. The burden that they will potentially face pales in comparison. As a closed head injury survivor, I was compelled to write. My injury occurred with a helmet on. Had my injury occurred without a helmet, I simply would not be able to respond due to severe irreversible head trauma. Good luck to you and your horse.
