I was gearing up a trotter I always drove at work, when that feeling of somethings wrong came over me. Trainer said I was being silly and to get going. Half way around the track and the horse burst into a fit of bucking. After running him into a fence after he broke half his gear I saw the reason for his outburst. The sulky chaft had snaped and was digging him in the side. Luckily it didn't peirce his skin, just gave him and I a huge fright. My boss listened to me from then on, and I now always trust my gut.
