    Officially come off Oliver...the road is a bad place to land!!

    Yeah so keeping it short cause I'm really hurting right now but took O out on a tail ride and he was great!!
    Coming back along the short bit of road we have to a car from behind us wasn't paying attention and started coming into the other lane from behind us and I stop and get the attention, nowhere for me to go cause it was a ditch then a yard and at the last minute hat swerved back cause they decide it would be nice to pay attention to the road...it was either pull O into the ditch ontop of me or just let him do what he was going to do...straight up and I was in the road on my back. He stayed with me, shaking so bad poor guy!

    My whole left side is throbbing and killing me and I need a new helmet. They jerks didn't even stop...

    I HATE inconsiderate people on the road. Especially if you don't have a choice but to ride on the road. To get to a few good trails from my house, you briefly have to cross the road. I can't tell you how many times idiots have flown past, not paid attention, not slowed down, honked or revved their engine at me, etc. I feel your pain.

    That really sucks. It really gets my blood boiling too. I would have a few words to say to those people, especially not even stopping to see if you were okay or needed to go to the ER.

    Omg, that is so scary! I don't get why people don't understand to be careful when there's a horse around.
    I was riding my Arab a few houses down to my neighbors last summer when I was keeping him at my mom's house, and as I was about to walk onto the neighbor's driveway the people across the street started up their Mustang about 20-30 feet behind us. Mind you, it was a race car so it was LOUD. Thank goodness my little bombproof guy didn't do anything more than jump a little bit. Then the guy in the Mustang, continued to drive it out onto the road towards us anyways, not even caring that I was on my horse. They were just lucky my Arab is more of a "stop and drop" spooker than a bolter (or more of I'm lucky, haha).

    Thanks you guys, it was really scary. My trainer came home from her lesson and she checked me out. I'm just super sore, maybe some bruised ribs

    I'm so thbakful for my Ollie for being either too scared ****les to move or whatever but he stayed with me and walked with me back to the barn nice and slow.

    Sorry you took a spill. But your trainer might be able to check out your horse, but if you need checking out, you really need a Dr.

    People in cars need to realize horses have the right of way on the roadway.

    I've had people try to purposely yell out the window to scare our horses- speed up- not move out of the road- slam the breaks to a screamin hault- honk- say rude things- try to stop and talk to us- burn out by us- have their sub woofers up all the way- (that really makes em jump) we seen these people driving with no tires just wheels throwing sparks all over the place- lol; I even had an angry granny purposely swerve at my mare, then give me the finger like it was my fault-- and her bumper literally clipped my mares hocks!!

    People are Jerks!!!! Im sorry you fell off onto the asphalt-- trust me I feel your pain! Still better than in a rock bed!

    It got to the point where when a car would come up behind us, we'd walk into the road on purpose- walk back to the side- then wave them down to slow 'er on down'-- and if they ignored us- wed yell at em, lol. I used to carry rocks, and D batteries, for the people that didnt wanna slow down.. thatll get their attention-- reckon it works pretty good on mean dogs too! ;)

    I am sorry abbot your bad road luck toto but that is something I am not doing, sounds like you shouldn't be on that road?

    Also sounds very dangerous to do....they have a car and have the ability to really harm you and your horse....I would not be doing such things to egg them on or makes them upset if this is what they are already doing...
