Maximilian I injured by horse

Those who have read about Maximilian I probably know that his first wife Mary of Burgundy   died because she fell off a horse, but Maximilian I also had a serious horse accident in 1501. He would survived it but he would from then on have to live with chronic pain. Despite that he would have to ride on horses regardless; to travel around but also while hunting, to command troops and while jousting like this:
