Katz, our county laws in PA state riders and bicyclists are to ride with traffic, as a vehicle. Apparently someone got a ticket years back for riding on the left side.

James, no fault of the barn's, the support beam took out the light on the ceiling. It's not a beautiful barn, but it works, safely. (Like I said, the halter was accidently left on)

I wouldn't say overly safe if there are exposed screws for horses to get caught on even with a halter being accidentally left on.

It was on the other side of the wall. It's not sharp, it's where the gate is hooked to. Regardless, not what this post is about.

When I ride on roads I never go past a trot and a slow. Trot on straight stretches. My sister and I were coming home from a ride and we were walking down a hill with fences on both sides. My sisters horse got looked by a horse that ran up to the fence and fell. Thankfully neither her or her horse was hurt but we both got off and walked the rest o the way. And also when we ride if there is a way to get off the road we take it. I was riding my mare up to the farriers. And she took off on me I stayed on till we got to the road then she made a sharp turn and I got drug 20ft along the shoulder...I am so thankful se didn't

Accidents happen and horses get themselves into trouble, with or without a human being involved an any way! You can't blame the OP for the barn wall being dragged down. The horse came out with a minor scratch, he didn't get seriously injured like before.

I think most states say right side, figures we'd be different.

Thanks for posting this story.

To all those who told they OP how crazy stupid this all was, I think perhaps she wasn't talking to you, but was talking to me and all the other newbs who have no idea that taking a horse on pavement is that dangerous. I learned something reading this thread.

This is also a great reminder to all of us that just because we get away with doing dumb things and not having anything go wrong for a long time doesn't mean we're better or smarter. We're just lucky. Fortune may favor the foolish, but the odds can catch up with us when we least expect it.

Anyway, glad to hear Pistol is doing well.
