Every athlete knows the risk of playing sports. We know that what we do isn’t safe. We can get concussions, pull muscles, tear tendons or break bones, but we continue on in our sports anyway. Why? And is it really worth it?
I can confidently say, as an athlete, that the sports we do are worth the risk. I am an equestrian, so my sport is horseback riding. I recently had a scary experience that made me realize just how much it means to me.
