I'll be wearing ALL my riding gear from now on. If I'd been wearing my boots and padded leather pants I would have probably walked away with just a few scratches.[/u]
One shoe flew off, and one glove came off, and I broke bones on those areas.
Gloves had short gauntlets, so I can advise getting gloves with long gauntlets.
Dude sorry to read about this. Hope you heal quickly and recover fully.
