Worst motor vehicle experience on horseback?
What is your worst experience on horseback or with a horse with a motor vehicle?
I wanna hear the stories. XD.
Heres mine;, I was leading my mare up the road, home from a lovely ride when a car backed out of a driveway in front of us. I saw it coming, and stopped about 10m away. The car proceeded to drive slowly up the road, and I followed it, maintaining my distance, eager to be home and eating dinner. Suddenly, in the middle of a busy road, the car reversed with speed. The driver did not check his mirror or peer out the window, I was in the middle of the quiet road and wearing florescent body armor, my pony was wearing a florescent bridle. The light was good. Still, the driver managed to back up and RAM his car into us! He hit my pony in the flank, causing her to throw her head up and scream. She then spun around, LEAPT over my head as I fell to the ground, and bolted don the road. The driver, completely oblivious to me and my horse, which had just bolted past his window, continued to reverse and would have crushed me behind his hind wheels if my neighbor had not bolted from his house, waving his arms and screaming at the man to stop.
Rest assured the driver got the talking to of his life. He didn't even seem sorry. My horse was okay, we found her about 300m away grazing on a lawn.
The man claimed he had no idea we where behind him. Like, whatever.
So who can top that for a motorist story? I wanna hear some!
