Wow, That is absolutely incredible.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog:

And do we notice that it was the draft cross that saved the day?

That is an awesome story.
Wallaby, Golden Horse and BCtazzie like this.
Do not tell me I can't...because I will show you that I can.

Wowwwww! What an inspiring story. Angels must really, really exist, and for horses, too! I hope that little boy continues riding. I can't begin to imagine what the dad went through...

Now we know who would win in a face off between a draft cross and a bear. : p

The horse, of course!
