Dear [Recipients Name],
I was sorry to learn of your fall from your horse; a broken arm is certainly not funny. The only problem is that now you can't put your fingers in your ears to avoid hearing people tell you "I told you so."
It has been a few years since I broke my arm but still remember getting annoyed at everything I couldn't do. Try not to get too depressed and just make the best of a bad situation. I hope your arms fixes quickly and you will be riding again soon.

Further things to consider when writing get-well letters to friends
Get-well letters are letters sent to wish people a quick recovery when they are suffering from illness or when they are injured. The simple gesture of reaching out to a person with a letter goes a long way towards lifting that person's spirits. Whether it is a serious illness or just a minor injury, you definitely can't say something insensitive. You want to encourage and put a smile on the person's face. Get-well letters provide some comfort and let people know that you are thinking about them.
Before writing get-well letters, you need to consider the relationship you have with the person. For close relatives and friends, it is fine to make the letter as personal as you like. However, for people you are not close to, avoid being too personal or wordy. Regardless, all get-well letters should express your concern for the person's illness. Keep the letter short, sincere, and to the point. Empathize with the person so that he/she knows that you understand what he/she is going through. Make the person feel the concern you have for him/her. Stay positive and avoid dwelling on the negatives. Close the letter by wishing the person speedy recovery.
Letters to Friends
Letters to friends are letters you write to people with whom you have a bond of mutual affection. These letters are like conversations and can be just about anything. They could be thank-you letters to thank your friends, congratulation letters to congratulate them, apology letters to say sorry, condolence letters to comfort the bereaved, etc. You could also write to your friends to share general information such as school and family news, what has been happening in your town, or just tell funny stories. Letters are special and show the other person that you are thinking about him/her. The recipient can keep the letters for years and read them over and over again.
Letters to friends are personal and are usually addressed to specific individuals. Since the recipient is a person with whom you have a close relationship, the salutation is more personal and less formal. Greet the recipient warmly and proceed to stating the reason for your letter. Share some information about yourself. Maintain a polite and friendly tone. End your letter on a note of anticipation to seeing the recipient soon or reading from him/her. You can also add a postscript for something you forgot to say.
