So while I was away at State for equestrian team, I got a text from back home. It details that two of my good friends were in a head on collision during a team speed event and both horses went down, and landed on their riders. That's what happens when you bump knees going mach 5 in a team barrel race.
Apparently all was well, everyone was fine, just very banged up and frazzled. I hear of black eyes, majorly bruised knees, a choke mark from a necklace, and horses being pretty sore and a bloody nose. However, I was touched to find out one of our other friends and fellow barrel racer lent out her prized gelding to one of the girls and my dear friend to end the day out on in the rest of the events, when she felt she should not finish the day out on the horse she rode in on.
It's just nice to see such a comradeship between us all locally. I know I would of given her Selena had I of been there as well.
Here's a picture, Desiree on her loaned horse and in the middle of telling her husband why she's going to be coming home with bruises. Both she and the other girl she rode with were real troopers, I hear.
