    Thanks for the recommendations on black cowboys, I am not American, so I don't know. I will certainly look into them. I appreciate it.

    AlexS, one of the most up-and-coming rodeo cowboys is African American these days; I can't remember what his name is but he's in the top 10 or so as I recall.

    PB, you live in a lovely place. I am happily married, but heck I am not ecstatic, LOL, he can be left.

    Totally joking, kind of, I have the best hubby in the world, but he could live in a better place.

    One of the trainers was giving a lesson to a little 8 year old girl. They were in the round pen and doing some low jumps at a trot. For some reason, the lesson horse threw a bucking fit and the little girl came off and landed under the horse. The horse stomped on the little girl, right on her chest! The scream that little dear let out is unforgettable. Luckily, the girl's mother did not see this actually happen. The trainer and I are the only ones that saw her get stomped. She was wearing a helmet, thank goodness.

    The trainer immediately immobolized her and 911 was called. It was a sight to see. They sent a firetruck, two ambulances and a rescue squad. They were quick and efficient. They didn't want to take any chances with such a traumatic injury. We suspect she has a broken collarbone, and several ribs. The outline of the horse's hoof was already visible as a bruise and the skin had been torn off her chest in the shape of a hoof. They were afraid of internal injuries so they decided to bring in a helicopter to fly her to a trauma center.

    We took the horses out of the front field and the helicpter landed there. I was very impressed that all the other horses in the other fields hardly reacted to the noise, sirens, helipcoter, and all the strange activity.

    I am waiting to get word on how the little one is doing. She was very calm by the time she was flown out. I told her I would take video of the helicopter landing and taking off so she could see it when she feels better.

    I just hope this doesn't scare her away from horses. She has already said she never wants to get on THAT horse again, and I don't blame her. Poor little girl. She must have been so scared. Her mom couldnt fly with her and the trauma center is at least an hour away. I hope I hear good news soon,

    Ok,..carry on with campfires and pictures, and rants, and whatever! Just ride safe everyone!!!![/

    I just prayed for her. I hope she is well soon.
    I am praying that the girl is ok
    I can understand why she does not want to get on that horse
    Again

    You are right, I have seen him, but can't remember his name either. Heck I can't remember where I parked my car when I go to the store. But I know you are right, I will look into him.

    I think I have unwillingly caused him to be a snob. We go to rodeos but I ride English, I am a jumper, by choice. I also take the kids to Devon for the GP jumping. I don't believe I talk any crap, but I do go ballistic jumping up and down over Devon. I think I have influenced him in that. And there are no black GP level jumpers I know of.

    I didn't mean to influence him, it's just my thing, so my support is much more when I watch it.

    Country Woman, my hubby saw me on the ground more than once, or walking home when I had an unscheduled dismount.... and finally grounded me until I found a better horse. It's the only time in our marriage that he limited my choices, but I knew he was right even though I didn't want to admit it to him. (I was still able to feel a ridge in my skull that I think was a healing fracture...didn't realize it until the swelling went down.) Anyway, helmets went on after that and we found my TWH mare that you've heard about already, my steady Eddy mare. He was right to work for safer conditions, but it's been harder for you up there in Canada because you have to work through stables.
