What a horrible day for you and your friends :( I had a mare that compound fractured her front leg a few years ago in the paddock, I still feel ill thinking it, the hurt never goes away completely, but it does dull over time. Best thing to do is try and get on with life as normal. Thinking of you and your friend xo

Oh I am SO SO SO very sorry to hear about you and your friend's loss. Was it her own horse? That makes me feel sick to my stomach and I almost want to cry. I am so sorry..let your friend know you are there...it must be really hard dealing with this.

Let out your emotions(in a healthy way of course) and let your friend cry on you if needed. I don't know how I would deal with that but you are a true friend.

She was a beautiful horse.

Oh no! I am so so sorry for your loss. That would be devastating to experience. Your friend is in my thoughts!

thank you. it was so scary...you dont ever expect anything like that to happen it was just an innocent ride with friends & it all went so wrong within seconds... i still cant get the image of it happening out of my head & i keep wanting to cry. Yeah it was her own horse, she had only had her since april aswell. Her & her 14yr old son are absolutely heart broken she was such an amazing horse so well behaved.. they were down the yard today & Jake (the son) just sort of forced a smile and a wave bless him..i feel so bad :( trying not to cry now lol

So sorry for the loss, I lost my guy to a broken shoulder about 2 months ago and was the most awful experience to see him in so much pain. They had to put him down right then and there in my pasture he couldnt take one step. Again I am so sorry for everyone having to go through this. It will get easier with time.

Oh, wow, that's so horrible. My thoughts are with your friend while she deals with the loss of her beloved friend.

RIP Hoppet, she was beautiful.

Oh dear. I am greatly sorry for loss and I send my thoughts and prayers for anyone involved.

There is one principle that should never be abandoned, namely, that the rider must first learn to control himself before he can control his horse. This is the basic, most important principle to be preserved in equitation - Alois Podhajsky

How tragic to lose a loved one at the holiday season.... I am so sorry it went so wrong. That was not how it was supposed to end.
