I have fallen several times -- one of them was a doosy! I was showing my champion show dog in the herding group. We had just finished our individual exam, and were gaiting around to the end of the line of dogs. My foot caught the rubber mat that was laid over a small rise in the concrete underneath it. It was like being on roller skates -- my foot stopped, but my upper body didn't. When I smacked into the concrete, I hit my left elbow and my head! Knocked my out cold. The ring steward came rushing in to take the leash, my husband was checking on me, and someone called 911. Luckily we had friends at the show who took the dog and all of my grooming stuff, put it all into the van, and drove the van to the hospital so my husband could ride in the ambulance (he got to play with the siren). I had a moderate concussion and a broken upper arm/shoulder.
There are more stories, but that is the worst one.
