Accident out on trail... Amazing horsee tries to save me



Let me remind all of you that I only adopted this horse 4/28/10 a couple of days after my birthday and a couple of days after I swore I would NEVER ride again!

You see a couple of months before I adopted my Beau bear I had a huge fall that resulted in minor head injury and had a major occurrence that broke me apart. So in that case I gave up riding. Plus I was losing my seat a whole lot. Falling off friends horses, my own horse down south. So here is the story.

At about 2:00PM 06/28/10 me & my horse went on trail to where there is a huge lake you can swim in and a big straight away you can gallop/canter/trot the whole way down if you want. My horse has a horrible way of putting his feet so it **** well of mighta been that he tripped. Well were were cantering along the trail going back home and *boom* tripped once ! Now I don't know about any of your horses but, my horse prances when we are going back home. So as i'm letting him prance I let him break into a canter and since he didnt get to gallop alot I let him pick up the gallop. I can normally keep him into a controlled collected hand gallop but, this time all he wanted to do was run. So what am I going to do stop him? Naw! So I let him gallop. I asked him to slow down and so he did. Broke back into a canter. Exactly what I wanted him to do ... patted him on the neck and told him "good boy beau" I had no idea what was to come next. He trips again! But, this time he didnt make it! He flipped over onto his back HEAD FIRST and once I felt his back end coming off the floor I knew I was going to either 1)get squished and risk being in the hospital
2)jump to the left and land ina pile of sticks
3)jump to right and pray I don't break my neck!

What do ya think I did?! Hell yeah i'm jumping to the right. I jump off of him and he goes tumbling! I coulda **** well been dead! That's how bad he fell onto his back. I'm in the back of him crying in unbelievable pain i've ever felt in my life. He thankfully did NOT get up and run awaii... Instead of running awaii he whinyed until I called out his name... I was in so much pain that he stood there whinying for 2mins straight.. I'll put it into quotes of how it was...

I jump off "holyyy sh*tttt"
*on floor crying watching for beau to get up*
*he gets up and immediately starts whinnying*
Me - beau im over here! Behind you! Beau!
*still whinnying*
Me - beau bear over here! Come here beau bear!
*he finally turns around in my direction and trots in my direction*

He must of known I was hurt b/c he waited for me to sit up. I was curled up holding my ankle screaming in pain b/c of the fall. I finally sit up and he bows his head. I thought he was itching his leg which he normally does but, he was waiting for me to put my hands around his neck so he could help me up. Let me tell you before he flipped. I saw him put his front legs in front of him and tried so hard not too.. Like he knew I was going to get hurt and he was doing everything possible to have it not happen. HE WAS PROTECTING ME! Anyway, I wrapped my hands around his neck and he pulled me up! Right off the floor! I hopped to the front of his face and patted him on the neck and cried so hard and thanked him for protecting me. A normal horse wouldn't do that! I put my head on his head and thanked him for a good 5 mins.. *still on trail at this point* I walked over to him and held onto him while I was hopping to my stirrup.. YES I WAS IN A SADDLE! Grabbed on and he stood perfectly still.. NORMALLY he would walk while I was getting on or he would keep moving but, this time he stood PERFECTLY still! I got on and he walked off. Not holding onto the reins, not in my stirrups. I told him *walk* and he walked off the trail like a perfect little angel. No prancing, no trying to break into a canter. Walked real slow! Because he knew I was hurt!

Let me tell you! Since I first bought this horse I regret NOTHING. I love this horse! He is my light and without him I don't know what I woulda done when that happened! I love my horse <3 Im also going to put some pics in here.

Well, thank goodness you weren't hurt! I know what you mean, though. While I've never had that happen with a horse (the flip or the protection) I've had a few dogs who have pulled me out of creeks or tugged on the leash to correct my balance as we are going down a woodland embankment.

Perhaps you ought to do some pole work with him to help him learn to pick up his feet, you could even find a way to raise the poles an inch or two off of the ground. Also, I'm not entirely certain, but in the front view of him in the cross ties that you are not in, his front hooves look funny, like the angle is causing his pasterns to be a really weird angle. Maybe trying something different with his hooves, a different angle or going barefoot for instance, might help him some. Certainly talk to the farrier about it.

And for safety's sake, wear a helmet. You didn't specify if you were wearing one or not in the fall, but all the same. You never know what's going to happen.

I am going to try and go barefoot when the farrier comes the next time. His feet are a little wierd. And no I wasnt wearing a helmet. I make stupid decisions lyk that. I actually have a hairline fracture in my ankle. I definitely will do some poles with him :) thank you.

What a great story. Isnt it weird that you and your horse are so connected that this happens. Some people wouldnt believe you or would say the horse must have been hurt that's why he didnt move or run home. I believe in that connection whole hearted! Its beautiful. Can't ask for a greater relationship!

So I am just curious...

How exactly did this miracle occur at about 2:00PM on 06/28/10 when you posted this story at 7:36 PM on 06/09/2010?

Or the other copy that you posted at 2:14 PM on 06/11/2010?
