The sad part is that mine is more for horses than me....lol. I figure its easier to get back out if I can keep my horse patched up. I haven't needed a rescue yet, but if I ever did I would like to be able to get it. I've been lucky that I haven't. We've been shot at (they thought we were deer), chased by dogs, honked at by semis, and had deer and birds pop out. I was lucky to be on a good horse who onlly reacted with a 3 step bolt and then stopped as soon as he hit the bit.
