I'm sitting here in South Carolina laughing my butt off at your idea of winter and "chilly" weather for your horses. Of course, I know I don't even want to think about your summer temps. It's hot here in the summer (this week 100+), but I'm sure it's nothing like your heat. I'm sorry, but the thought of rugging a horse in 73 degree weather is just absolutely hilarious to me.

Haha the hijacking is fine :) I hadn't even heard of this accident, but looking it up now it's a pretty big deal!

And yes, now looking at it I can see how everyone found it funny :P I did put a light rain rug on him last night and when I went to take it off this morning he wasn't too hot, he was a snug as a bug :)

Yeh the accident was a real shame. But its sad that the campus had to be shut down, accidents to that extent can happen anywhere anytime on any horse. I guess someone had to be blamed. I don't mean to sound shallow or horrible, I had one of my best friends killed by a horse at a campdraft so I can feel their grief. :(

I agree Nyx; I'm sure every horse is capable of causing an accident to that extent, it doesn't matter how "safe" they might be, things happen :/ A barn we I use to board at lost one of their best trainers to a horse accident. Complete one in a million chance of it happening and it happened. I can't say that I can understand their grief as much as you, but I know what it's like to loose someone to a horse accident and the commotion that follows :(

I didn't even know there was ever a horse facility at Orange TAFE.

The only educational horse thing I ever knew was CSU.

I wish my uni had an equestrian centre, I'd love an indoor arena right about now!

Yeh that's right! Horses are unpredictable to some extent afterall. IT is rough but never let it hold you back from riding. I will never ever not wear a helmet now.

Yeh saskia I only found out about it the other week cos I wanted to pick up another course. But Yeh we had a great horse facillity just out of town past the showground. Its still there so hopefully it can start up again. :)
