Kudos to my old time trainer-he is the trailer loading GOD.

As well as the master of many other things!.. I knew he was good, but I was out to lunch with a mutual friend yesterday who told me a pretty amazing story. I will try and keep it as simple as possible. Three families and about 10 horses go to Florida every winter for 3 months. THis friend, another friend and the trainer basically. They went out riding the other day which involved trailering the horses. My friend has a Chevy pickup crew cab with a gooseneck (thankfully) 2 h straightload. They had 2 horses in the trailer, going down the road at about 45 mph. Thankfully, the husband was driving. My friend said she looked up and saw a black van veering over the center line coming right for them. Of course she hit them, just behind the rear cab door of the truck.....and continued contact with the truck, and entire trailer, to the point where is actually ripped the wheels off entirely. Somehow, by the grace of god, my friends hubby fought that load and kept that trailer on the road, upright for about 200 feet, until he came to a stop. I cannot imagine how frightening this was. But-NONE of them (except for the lady in the van, who will be ok, I guess)were injured. Horses were fine!.......

So, my friend stopped shaking, made the calls she needed to, and had the trainer come with his trailer to get the horses. When he was in the trailer, he noticed that the trailer was hit so hard the center post was even bent. I would NOT have expected that either one of those horses would be keen at all on getting on another trailer......but-trainer got there, unloaded and reloaded both without one single moments hesitation. That shows me a couple of things. He has done a GREAT job with these horses and they respect and trust him immensely.

I am just so glad noone was hurt. It could have been SO horrible. And-I LOVE LOVE my trainer.

I just cannot believe those horses would go back on. Now the real test will be if a couple of weeks when they come home. Perhaps that was too soon to be a real test. But-trainer travels with, so all is good. Cannot wait til he gets home to give him a hug!

Cowchick-you have no idea. And his son, and now daughter in law are going to carry on the legacy. They are all so good. I am anxious for my guy to go spend a month with the son......in April. Dad won;t be quite home yet, plus he is booked MONTHS ahead. I can always go ride with him, which I do, because I consider him a friend, but at 75 he is still pretty busy!

Wow, that's so crazy!! I'm glad everyone was ok!!!

A friend of mine had a mechanical failure of the hitch which caused her bumper pull trailer to come right off, break the chains, and roll into the ditch at highway speed. By some grace of god, her horse was still in one piece, just a little cut and banged up, and when someone brought another trailer to take him home, same thing, he walked right on without a moment's hesitation. *THAT* was when my friend totally lost it. It's amazing what these animals will do for us!
