Thankyou for sharing. I was in a bad accident last year and I believe my helmet saved my life. Landed head first on pavement.

Ouch, that sounds terrible! Were you badly injured?
I found it hard to even watch Courtney's video, but I think she's so brave for making it.

The back of my head was just sore and some road rash on my legs and arms.I was also knocked out for 15 mins. It happened because I lost my stirrup at a full gallop. There is now a rip in the material on the back of my helmet, a good reminder to always wear one. I found the video very hard to watch too

It sounds like you were really lucky!!

I just noticed your horse is named Africa! I used to train a beautiful TB named Africa. I liked her so much that I was going to use her name (and personality!) in my book, until a friend reminded me there's an 'Africa' in Riders by Jilly Cooper. It's a great name :)

I don't know if these have been said..

I am a barrel racer and one thing that drives me nuts is when the horse and rider are running home and they smack their horse on the neck or whip them. Don't people know that when you whip them they only stiffen up and run slower? And then they smack them like, "oh you ran a great patter but im going to beat the crap out of you on the way back anyways!" Can't stand it.

Also, when people think a horse is worthless because it's not registered. If you don't plan on breeding that horse, then honestly, what's the point? There is none.

Everyone trips, and most people fall. But some people make a beautiful dance out of it.

I just remember a pet peeve I have,
So this wednesday I am hauling my mare to trade for another taller mountain horse. Its the perfect situation for both horses and people, however, I still go out there with my mare everyday, and give her cuddles and kisses and ride her just like I always do.
I hate it when somebody decides they want a new horse and suddenly forget about the one they have. I know a girl that was in my situation (trading her horse) and for the last week she had her old horse she just ignored her, completely occupied with the one she was getting.
Terrible.

How about the opposite? Ignores the horse for a full year and a half, only combing out for a few months at a time then we don't see her forever. Then decides she's selling horse, and is out all the time trying to get him ready to sell. Horse is a ottb.
