woah, sounds spooky.
Hope he's okay! (:

Scariest thing that every happened to me? We were in a lesson, and were riding in the intermediate ring for the day because the intermediate kids wanted to give the advanced ring a try. My friend Amelia was riding a six year old appy named Freddie, and she was rounding a corner. Freddie was very clutzy and his legs totally slid out from under him. He came crashing down to one side and Amelia was thrown off. The first thing I noticed wrong was that when she stood from her fall, instead of going to get Freddie-which she would've done normally, she loved him to death and would probably be scared that he was hurt- she walked off in the other directoin. So 1) she had no idea what happened/where she was, or 2) she was hurt too bad to be thinking about her horse. Our instructor told her she could sit down, which she did, but she was about to collaspe, so she said she could lie down, which she did. She didn't try to get up and we were all freaking. Amelia is one of my good friends and I was crying my eyes out, totally freaked. I was so scared I swore I heard ambulence sirens. After what seemed like forever, the beginner instructor/barn director walked into the ring and asked what happened. We started to explain. She asked Amelia if she could sit, and thank god, she said yes. After a minute she stood up, just brushed herself off and asked how Freddie was. I was in awe but so happy.. Amelia got back on but Freddie was lame so she just walked him out for the lesson bareback. It was SO scary but she was fine.. thankfully.

When I was ten my older sister(by eight years)) was training this horse of hers. This is like 5th time shes been on his back and he was doing good but some how I knew today would be different. I wanted her to put a helment on of course she told me no she will be fine then i started crying (a month before a guy died at me barn in my lap so i was kinda scared.) she finely said okay lil'one I will go get a helment on. She got on the horse and one of the guys from lead he around on him like normal and then she said "okay. I think its safe to let him go, just be near if something happens". She made to laps up and down the barn and something spooked the horse and he reared and made her hit her head agaist the concrete wall. James (the guy who was helping) ran over there and helped her up. I ran and grabed the horse who was trying to break down a door. Meagan had scratches down her back and the helment broke in half but she seamed to be fine, or so we thought. She walked the horse up and down the hall way to make sure he was okay and then she looked in one of our horses stall and said "Rachel, weres jasper?" (Jasper was her stud that she sold a week before. We put our mare in there after he left) I looked at her funny like did she forget for a secound then she said again like she was freaking out "Rachel!?! Were is Jasper?" i told her "Meagan we sold Jasper a week ago. Remeber?" she looked at me like I was an ailen and then said "I need to go to the hospital." Someone said they would take her. She asked me to come with her and she held my hand because she was scared. Every car that looked like my moms or grandmothers car she would be like "Is the mom?" I would say "No.I havent called mom yet. She doesnt know your hurt". It turns out she had a cunncussion but she was fine other then that.

It sounds like your hubby has the same thing but you dont need me to tell you that.
