I'm so glad they are both alive! How horrible! I hope that person is caught or turns him/herself in. I can't imagine how anyone could just leave! I mean, how do NOT SEE a horse!!?? Dang cell phones!

Welcome to the forum, I'm sorry to say that under these terms, but welcome non the less!

One is closer to God's heart on a horse than anywhere else on earth!

I hope the driver will turn himself/herself in. I know they didn't hit the horse and rider on purpose, but to leave the scene is beyond reprehensible.

This is why I don't ride along roadways; too dangerous.

You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!

[broad assumption]
Most people who do not stop have a reason for not stopping. Like they are drunk or such.

Youngm, wishing your barn manager a quick recovery.

How terrible!

I wish her a good recovery, though it will be a long one. A friend of mine suffered a skull fracture when her horse reared, slipped and flipped on her 3 years ago.
