It does happen, and it will hurt for a while. My wonderful mare gave her heart in her work and recently had to be put down after reaching the ripe old age of 42. I miss her everyday, but there will be more horses that you will bond with just as much.

There is no such thing as natural horsemanship, because nothing we do with horses is natural. There is only good and bad horsemanship.
