I am so sorry this happened to your horse. I am so sorry this happened to you. Sleep well if you can. Don't beat yourself up over this. You did, as we all do, what we think is best.

I'm very sorry for your loss, OP.

A somewhat heated discussion about the folly of not researching a company's reputation before using the company has been removed from this thread. It is, however, an important subject, and a general discussion about it would be welcomed if started in an appropriate place.

Please remember that members who start threads in our memorials forum are already obviously grieving about losing a horse they loved. Unless an OP posts about a reasonably foreseeable/easily preventable death that results from her negligence, to which critical replies are arguably reasonable, members should reply with the same consideration and tact they'd appreciate if the thread were about a horse of their own dying, e.g.,

There are many accounts of incidents with this company online. That's why it's so important that people do as much research as possible about a company before using them.
as opposed to

Had you done your research before letting the horse go with them, she might still be with you.
Thank you for keeping the Horse Forum a safe place to discuss and grieve for the loss of a beloved horse.

So sorry for your loss, and the insensitivity of the transporter.

I hope you have filed a lawsuit. The court may even charge the company with failing to secure a load (very serious charge here), animal cruelty, etc.

im so sorry for your loss, she was teken too soon, but i know she touched my heart and others on the forum. She looks like she was an amazing girl. I will do my part to spread the word where i can about the company. Angel was loved and well taken care of and i know she touched the hearts of a lot of people. She was taken too soon and unfairly, remember all the great parts please dont concentrate too much on the accident. ~(((hugs)))~

the hardest part of riding is the ground... yup sounds about right

I am so sorry for you your loss, as well. Angel was a beautiful...well...appropriately named, Angel! Her video made me smile over and over, what an inspiration!

How she died was a horrible, horrible thing, and it should have NEVER have happened. (I DO hope you have contacted an attorney in all of this, there is serious charges to be faced!) And she should have had longer with you, but those 2 years were filled with plenty of love and warmth - anyone watching that video can see that. And anyone can see the lives she touched while she was here, and still does! She was loved, and I know she passed that love back to you. RIP beautiful Angel.
