Gruesome Ejie Update *warning*

I feel terrible.
I'm starting to cry again writing this.

I took Ejie out today to work, and I threw on an old/cheap aussi saddle for variety. She moved and it kind of slipped to the side, this doesnt bother her with my english we went over it, but with this one she totally spooked.

She got away from me and took off running, not it was competley on her side.

She tried to jump the fence, we have the hot wite insulators that cover the t-post but she hit the fence first knocked the line and fell back onto it.

She impaled herself on the t-post.

She was hysteric and ran around for a good 4 minutes while I tried to catch her, she ran me over, she got blood everywhere.

My mom was about to call 911 thinking I was bleeding after she ran me over but it was all hers.

She hit an artery and there was blood all over the stall walls, Fable, the water tank, me, the ground. . .

This has been one of the worst experiences of my life.

The vet stuck his whole hand into the puncture wound to stop bleeding, she was very woozy at this point and wobbling around friom the blood loss.

She tore through all the muscles etc. my vet kept say how lucky she didnt hit her lung, she is a smidge away from it hitting her chest cabavity and callasping her lung.

He has sewn together the different layers, and sew in a drain tube.

Her shoulder got torn open he pull the skin back and sew that up, its draining down with the other wound, the t-post exited there. . .

She is locked in her stall now.
I feel like the worst person ever.

I got out every hour to see her and give her hay to occupy.

The vet will be out in 5 days to hopefully remove drain and bring good news, however we could still lose her and its terrifying.

This is all I can type right now, I dont want to lose my girl

I have some names for professional trainers that specialize in arabian and saddlebreds and that is where we are starting when heals, if she makes it though


After she calmed down, this is 30 min after it happened still waiting for vet


my poor ejie girl i dont even diserve her anymore she is so smart and wondering and just willing. She is such a great little horse she has to make it through

Oh my god, I feel SO sorry for you.

Please, this isn't your fault. Do not blame yourself. You didn't try to make the horse spook, this was all an accident.

I really hope she'll be okay, please keep us updated. I know how scary that feeling of maybe loosing a horse is. But, I'm sure it won't happen. Stay strong.

Big, huge hugs! Horses do dumb things for reasons that we can't always predict or prevent. Praying your horse recovers completely, you don't deserve to lose her.

I can understand how you may feel about what you saw and got to del with. I had a simular experience at the track with a young filly. Us on the other hand were not so lucky. She was just starting out with the jog cart when the loud speaker squeeled off spooking her. She took off at a dead run flipping the cart and tearing it apart on one pillar of the barn. Then headed right for the back track. I never in my life seen a horse do what she did next. She ran herself right into the fence ( didnt try to jump it ) and drove the broken fence rail straight into her dropping dead instantly. I will never forget that day EVER. That poor filly. I was gald if she had to go that it was sudden and she didnt suffer. That happened the last year I did harness racing back in 2007.
Im glad your horse is okay and sorry you and him had to go threw that. May he heal soon.

I'm so sorry you had to go through all of that! It's terrible to see your horse in pain and especially with so much blood. Don't blame yourself- crap happens. Sending good thoughts your way for a speedy, uneventful recovery!

I pray she makes a full recover


You are a wonderful horse owner, I assure you!!! It's okay to cry, but do not blame yourself! You got a vet to help her and she's fine now, just needs to focus on healing.

Go hang with your girl and calm yourself down. It's okay!!!

Like others have said, don't put the blame on yourself. They could be bubble wrapped and put in padded rooms and would still manage to injure themselves.

Sending well wishes for a speedy recovery. Big hugs!
