Please give me your opinion :)

Hi! Im new here and this is my first post!! I am currently leasing a 27 year old morgan mare who is in wonderful shape and perfect health! She's very energetic too :) yesterday I got a text from the barn owner where I ride saying that Tea (horse I lease) was in her run-in stall while the BO was brushing her, when another horse came in, spun around, and gave her a good solid kick her right in her side with both hind legs! Tea fell against the BO who was pushed upp against a wall so she was trapped. From what I was told, Tea didnt run or try to fight back she just couldnt get away. BO finally got the other horse to leave, but Tea had already been kicked about 5-10 times in the side. When I went to go visit her last night her whole side from her girth all the way across her back and stomach to her back leg was sore and swollen and she had a minor cut on her leg and side. The BO said that she doesnt think she cracked any ribs but how do I know for sure that they arent bruised or chipped? I was just going to wait until the swelling went down and the BO said she was better, but I don't want to get on her and risk hurting her anymore :( Please give your opinion! Thanks :)

If they are bruised or chipped you would just hjave to wait until she got better anyway. I would give her some banamine and wait and see. I also wouldn't have more than 1 horse in an area that didn't have an escape route and space to get away. A run in stall should only be for 1 horse.

I wouldn't ride her, give her some time to feel better.
She's an old girl, Id be surprised that ribs weren't broken. Keep an eye on her breathing that's for sure.

I would call a vet out, just to be safe.
I hope it turns out that she's a-okay!

Poor girl. Yeah, I'd be inclined to just let her recover for a while, so long as she's not lame - if there's any chance of fracture or other damage to legs I'd get a vet sooner rather than later.

Hopefully the BO has learned from this, that small enclosures where other horses have access should be open sided or have an escape route, and if dealing with a horse in that sort of situation, the person needs to be alert & in control of other horses in the vacinity too.

I'd give her some time off. Esp since she's older, it might take her a bit to heal. Poor girl :(
