'Passive' ways to break a bone/necessitate amputation

Setting: Vaguely medieval, realistic with no magic, technology wise, something like the Renaissance era. It is a short story (~2k words) that will be focusing on the MC's trauma, so the only important things about the setting that I can think of right now are that it is a monarchy, and the mainstream religion is polytheism, believing in a pantheon of god/esses.

Character: A 14-year-old princess-turned-queen due to the untimely death of her brother. She will have had physical training in horse-riding, but probably that's about it?
