Glad your daughter is ok! I was cringing when I read that the horse was trying to back up!
My moment was nothing to do with gloves, but with helmets. I know some people never wear them, but I always wear one.
Reason being, when I was a teen (as a kid I was forced to wear a helmet at all times by my parents), my mare was recovering from a sprained tendon or something similar.
So we were starting work again after her rest period, and were strictly only supposed to walk.
So I thought, I'm a big girl now, I can decide NOT to wear a helmet on my own... And we're just going to walk anyway.
Fair enough, but, last minute, something made me grab that helmet. And that day, my horse did something I don't even remember, I just remember hitting the ground helmet first... Then nothing...
I was fine, but knocked out. But I couldn't believe what couldve happened had I not taken the helmet last minute.
But. I don't trust my gut completely, so I always wear my helmet now... Good intuition or bad... Just in case my gut is wrong! Ha ha! Posted via Mobile Device
