Alwaysbehind, the family HOPES he may have wandered off. Very big difference between thinking something has happened or hoping it has happened. If someone comes up to you and tells you your horse has died/gone missing/is caught in a fence, you think they're probably right, but inside you're hoping they've got the wrong horse.

If they are competing at as high of a level as it sounds, then there is the very real possibility that the horse could well have been stolen. I wouldn't even be surprised if it had been stolen by a fellow competitor. Some people will stoop that low to sabotage the person they feel most threatened by.

was the horse on their property or at the show grounds. had he jumped there would have been evidence in tracks around the fence near his leaping. but she to still compete throws me, if i was that worried bout my horse i wouldnt be still riding. could it all just be an insurance scam? its been done before im sure.

Bleh something smells fishy.....If my horse went missing I wouldn't put on my million dollar smile like that young girl did. They seem a bit "ladeedaa" about the whole thing. Could be an insurance scam OR the horse could really be missing and they just don't really care.

What does the horse being used to a specific pen mean in this situation?

Any updates on Roanie?

I surfed the web looking for updates and found on some rodeo blog somewhere that the horse had been found. I tried to look up the youth nationals points to see if she had made the show but had no luck.... I would think if the horse had been stolen there would have been updates.

Glad the horse was found.
There are some IFYR barrel results here:

...But her name isn't there. Maybe she didn't compete, or just wasn't in the top?

i think they mean hes use to being locked in that "pen" before comp so hes not just put there for the first time and freaked and jumped out you know?

I think AB's point was that ANYTHING can freak a horse out at any time, any place. Just because the horse had been in that pen before doesn't mean there's NO way it could have jumped out, which was the implication of the first statement.

Sure it probably didn't just decide to jump out because it didn't like it's pen, but if something spooked it, he could have jumped.
