Hurt horse and green horse- help??

So we're on our way to the Charmayne James barrel racing clinic that I've been waiting for since February, and wouldn't you know, I woke up this morning and last night my horse jewel got her leg through the fence and cut herself right to the bone. Without a backup horse, I'm now off with a pretty green horse who's only had about a month an a half of riding last year and about 4 rides this year. Does anyone have any advice at all for getting through the weekend as best as we can? I'm so ridiculously upset right now. Talk about a waste of 800...

Well, as long as your hurt mare is going to be ok ........................

Yes, she's okay. I don't mean to sound insensitive or anything. Believe me, she's my first priority. She's washed and bandaged as best as we could and given penicillin, dad is waiting at the house for the vet right now. She was pawing and got her foot through the fence and peeled the meat back from the front of the foreleg, and you can see the bone in a small place, but I don't think there's any damage to her tendon or anything. Just a nasty flesh wound. :(

Take it very slow and do not ask too much of the green horse. It is not his fault this happened so don't get frusterated with him. Concentrate on learning as much mentally as possible. Ask lots of questions, that way it is easier to recall when your #1 horse is better.

I find it very helpfull to write things down right away.

This will not be a waist of $$$ you will no doubt learn something and your green horse will deffinatly be better for it.

Have Fun and meet some great people!

You can learn so much from the clinic just listening to her. Helped at the clinic here a couple years ago and it was amazing how much the riders/horses learned over the course of the clinic.

I agree with the others, take it nice and slow. This will be a good learning experience for you and your horse. Have fun and just relax :). Best wishes for your mare's recovery.

Sorry about what happen. It's always my nightmare too: something to happen before the show or clinic. :(

As for the green horse, take it very slow. It's much better to just learn a little, than try to rush and put yourself and the horse in unsafe position. I'd consider it as a new experience! :)
