Anything can happen when riding a Horse and in any event

We had a Barrel Racing in the County I lived in a while back, I probably went to over 100 races over the years and saw maybe 2,000 individuals race and never saw one accident, this club raced for money and they were pretty intense racers.

But you are correct, I never ride that fast or want to


May all your Trails be happy and safe ones

I know accidents can happen when riding , even if it's just in your own pasture ...but I wouldn't want to be in one of those accidents , those horses go so fast ...but I don't know I may change my mind on it ....once I get comfortable in my seat again it may be different story....When I was younger I used to love the speed , but now that I'm older I think of the "what if's" maybe a little to much for my own enjoyment lol

Proper training and preparation is going to help negate the chances of disaster in any sport.
