Sad, Touching story, as Missy is now dead...

Hello all,
I'm glad you guys put this here. It was a good idea too.

Please read this. I know it looks long but it is really worth the read...

One of the ponies, Missy I used to ride a while back died.
She was a moody mare and used to kick and buck at other horses when they ran up her bum. (Fair enough! Those thoughtless riders needed to have WAY more control!)
In my group I had to stay at the back because of that reason. When I was at the back none of the horses would go or go fast. So they put me at the front. Then I would go and trot around as we was told but the horses behind followed but the silly riders didn't slow them down!
The people that used to ride Missy would say to me...
"Do you want my whip? She's been really bad today!"
I would say no and get on her. For some reason Missy and I just connected to each other and we never fought and I never used a crop on her.

Sorry that it's a long story but I feel it needs to be told...
One day when I was riding a different horse, everyone was getting ready for event day. There was dressage, barrel racing and jumping. Now, when I used to ride Missy, if I went in her bay (or stall) my mum and sister used to stand WAY back because we knew that Missy didn't like people crowding around her. But on the event day there were two girls in her bay, each on one side. There were about five adults standing right up close to Missy with three little toddlers. Now, since Missy didn't like people crowding around her, she did a little kick so the girls in the bay would back off. But they didn't. The person that runs the place went into Missy's bay and was about to do the girth up. She told them to stand back. But none of them did. She tightened the girth and Missy got scared (as I think she was girth shy before they got her. As well as the crowd and the sudden movement.) She reared up and reared up again. This time she reared up too high and her lead rope, (which was attached to the pole thingy so they couldn't get away.) It snapped and she fell back on her back. But as she was falling back there is another bay behind her and she whacked her head on the WOOD HARD POLE.
As she landed everyone gasped. But wait, there was horse in that bay that she landed in. But luckily he didn't move. People rushed to her after a quick 3 seconds as we all thought she would get back up and run away. But she didn't...
They took the saddle and bridle off her as quick as possible. They started patting her on the belly and saying to her "Come on Missy! Come on!" Mum stood there and told me over and over again "She's gone. She's gone. Nah, that's it, she's gone..."

The worst part was that I was standing right next to the bay which she landed in. I saw it all. I cried and cried but only for ten minutes as the event day had to go on. Mum was even crying too. She came into the club room which is next to the bays and gave me a hug. Mum told me that she had to help drag Missy out to the van or whatever they put her in.

I was so ever sad and what annyoned because if those heartless people had moved like they were told. It wouldn't of happened. So still to this day I believe those people that didn't move practically killed her!

Some say that the bay she landed in that had the other horse in it stood on her head and that's what killed her.
But I was standing right next to her and he didn't...



Missy you were the one and only I love you so...
R.I.P
Rest in Peace....

And remember... I love you.
