We report the case of an orofacial injury caused by a horse kick. Animal attacks most commonly involve domestic animals, such as dogs, cats, bulls, camels, and horses. When an orofacial injury caused by a kick from a horse occurs, it is often serious, and may even be fatal. Children are the most common victims of horse kick injuries, generally being attacked by a horse they know. The patient was successfully treated via three stages of reconstruction: surgical, orthodontic, and prosthetic.
