Wow. That was amazing. What a brave young lady and the horse was a champion of champions that day. He deserves his ration of feed and a sweet pasture the rest of his life!

I am just SHAKING after that story!! WOW! Bawling my eyes out!
It is absolutely AMAZING how some horses will fight their natural instincts
To help their rider.

I was trail riding one day and was attacked by 4 huge german sheps.
One even attacked my mares hind quarters and latched on to her
Tail! I jumped off to help scare the dogs away, and just knew Sky would
Take off leaving me behind with the dogs! But they were hurting her and
She wouldn't buck, so I needed to help her! Instead of running she turned
Into a raging banshee and killed two of the dogs and severely injured the two others! After she ran them off, she came back to me shaking her head, and
Was covered in blood. I walked her home, called the vet and she had to have
So many stitches I lost count! The old girl saved me and didn't leave me in
The dust!

I had her till the day she died and won't EVER find another like her!
