Wow. Sorry that happened, but I can surely see where it could have been even worse! I hope they heal up soon and well.

There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.

Wow! That is so awful! I hope the injured horse makes a full and speedy recovery and that you have some sort of insurance coverage to replaced the collapsed arena! D: You're only about a 2 hour drive from where I live. We have 1 - 3 feet of snow here as well depending on where you measure. Luckily no one I know has had any collapsing structures. Of course, most of us do not have indoor arenas. I just hope we don't have significant flooding later this week with the suddenly warm weather and all the melting snow. I am SO ready for this weather to be over!

And we are getting more snow tomorrow. Just had about 4" yesterday. The path I made to the horses will be buried again. Supposed to be milder here tomorrow so tomorrow's project will be to remove the snow from the hay shed roof. This will be the second time. Usually it's done in mid Jan just once. This year it had to be done in early Dec. and never has it needed doing twice. I just have to shovel my way over there.

That's insane. Those pictures are so scary!!

When I was younger, the indoor arena/barn where I took lessons collapsed. The trainer at the time just let all of the horses out of their stalls--it was the fastest and easiest way to let them out.
She ended up getting trampled into the snow, and only breaking her nose. Who knew snow could be such scary stuff?

The sensitivity of the internet baffles me.

Oh my gosh, I hope she has a speedy recovery! I can also see how that situation could've been a lot worse.

I live about an hour northwest of you and the weather has been absolutely brutal. Just storm after storm it seems like. :(

I never would have thought that would happen. Our arena was beastly. Seeing the steel beams warped gave me chills

Oh, how horrifying! Glad the one horse was uninjured and I'm sending jingles for the other. That much blood always makes me shudder.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog:
