A few years ago I rescued a mare and found out she was in foal....delivered a beautiful lil filly and when the foal was about a month old I decided on a whim to let my son ride the mare......he had never ridden a horse before....i was talking him through it as I was trying to take a picture. Her filly decided to go out of her sight and the mare trotted after her into a lean-to with a low roof. My son ended up getting closelined...did a backflip off the back of her and wound up landing on his feet! Great dismount...son!!! He turned around and looked at me and started crying....poor kid.....he was 14 yrs. Old
Safe to safe he doesn't ride now?
