Jingles for our trainer please?

Our beloved trainer, who has to be one of the "original" cowboy NH types, at 65-70 years old-came off today. It was UGLY, and he was mercy flighted out. Jingles appreciated please......we are all beside ourselves with worry, plus the fact that we know he has no $, no insurance........But a nicer person you would NEVER meet, who cares SO much about horses! They all are like magnets to him. They all love him so much.

Just a freak accident today-as the all are, and a reminder to (A) wear your helmet (he never wore one-just a cowboy hat, thanks! And (B)-please try not to ride alone!

We were SO fortunate that many of us were there.......SO many days he rides alone. Owner was just starting to ride her horse, horse being a bit snotty today-they were all feeling good on a monday, with cooler weather......he got on the horse himself.......asked for a canter...horse bucked, saddle slipped (it had been adjusted and check NO LESS than 4 time in 20 minutes)-he went off-hit his head. Was unconscious for at least 5 minutes, and now, 4 hours later is just beginning to remember who the horse even is he was riding.
While he lay unconscious, the horse, who is actually a very nice, usually sensible, but green, mare, just LOST it. The saddle was slipping under her, she was running and bucking.......again-thankfully, several of us were there. Had this been another day-horse MAY have trampled him in her scared state, as he lay there.
Just a sobering reminder to all of us. We are all pulling for him. I think he will be ok, but will take some time......know the shoulder is dislocated, but the head injury is the more concerning obviously.

He'll be in my thoughts! Those old folks are just SO stubborn sometime. :( If he can move and memory is coming back then I truly believe he'll be OK. I've seen that happened 3 times (twice with older people) when they fall and then couldn't remember what happened and how they ended up on ground. I hope everything will be fine with him!!

Thanks all. Just got an update. So far all tests are negative, thankfully. He is very very sore, and may be released from the hospital today. Will keep you posted, but I am thinking perhaps at his age he needs to give lessons and teach people to train their own horses! Lol

Wow, that's scary. I'm glad that it sounds like he is going to be okay. However, if he is anything like the old cowboys I know, keeping him off a horse will be an unwinnable fight.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Afraid you are right. He would much rather show us how! Lol. He is a man of few words, as are many.

All the more reason for him to teach and not ride green horses. Even good solid horses have bad days.

My husbands medivac ride was $5,000. And that was several years ago.
