It is far far far better to have a break like that then to have had her shoulder dislocate. She'll be 100% in a few months. How's she taking it?

Hey everyone thanks for the well wishes and positive thoughts and to not blame myself. That part is hard since I know it is her 1st real year riding.

Now we add concussion to the list as well. Which I was unaware of. She must have been really flying.
All throughout this year in our little time learning park I have always drilled starting small and progressing safely and hitting features correctly and safely. Today she did have good speed the 1st time we hit this feature and she got nice little (safe in my mind and controlled) air. Which is what this feature is meant for, it is in the progression (beginner) park.

Lack of experience in all aspects, I think she just misjudged her speed.
She is kinda down, I'm sure combination of pain and mixed emotions. I think and hope and from all I can tell, we had a great season riding together and I always rode where she wanted to. Worst part is it was her pushing to go to the park today. I said lets take it easy as it was snowing and visibility was good but not the best.

No cast yet, the break is so high they can't immobilize it with a cast so sling for now. Orthopedic at the end of the week to make sure its lining up properly otherwise surgery and pins. Crossing my fingers the later is not the case.

Again thanks everyone I will miss my riding partner !!!!!

I have a cousin who is a (plastic) surgeon in Milwaukee...while I'm sure you're getting fine medical care let me know if I can see if he knows an orthopedic..

Good luck hope surgery won't be needed and she must have been hauling or just poped hard?

Sorry to hear that, man. Vibes to your girl. A complicated surgery for sure, but kids are a resilient bunch and generally heal better and faster.

Well, Hopefully it's a good lesson on how to bail!

Getting your kids active is awesome, just make sure she stays stoked with riding while she's sidelined. There's so many kids these days that just fuck off, She has a great story to tell and something to brag about in school now!

Now that the pain is gone she'll love the attention. Don't feel bad, you're awesome. I wish my sisters would introduce snow sliding to my nephews and nieces.

Definitely not your fault at all. Sucks and it's okay to feel bad for her but not your fault.

We all have to take our lumps in life. This is hers.

+++ vibes her way that this is a quick and easy recovery.

Yikes, that looks painful!! Positive vibes her way for a fast recovery.

Don't beat yourself up, this kind of stuff happens to kids - they all think they're invincible. This could have happened falling off a bike or scooter or on the playground at school - you can't be there all the time.
