my thoroughbred pic of her when she was hit by a car last may

las may my friend was trail riding down a gravel road and a car came barreling past her and spit rocks at her and spooked her. tricky then rared up broke the cinch on the saddle and through my friend and she chased the care down and i made the mistake of calling her back to me . so she cut infront of the car and jumped over the hood she had the car just about cleared except her back feet hit the windsheild and she rolled over the car and landed on her feet running back to me. she totaled a 2008 colbalt. but what i dont get is how can u not see a 1500lbs thoroughbred running down the side of your car and not slow down a bit. but ya that was my scare for the year... but now she is healed and we are back under the saddle

did she loose her eye? Is that blood pouring out of her hip?!

I had a car swerve out if its lane and start coming right at me and my mare. There was no one even in their lane, we were just riding around in my development. Some people are just dumb. Were you wearing bright colors? Reflective equipment for you and the horse always helps. Esp since you mare is dark.

Oh my goodness... How is she now? That's horrible! Poor, poor baby girl. I can't imagine how you must have felt! We'd love to see some pics of how she is doing today!

Anyone else thinking of the Horse Whisperer right now? I still cry every time I see the opening scenes.

Smart people listen. Not so smart people think they do not need to hear what others have to say.

OMG, how horrible. I am so glad that she healed up well. :,,,(

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:
