^ This as well.

I know Desiree would not risk getting back on Snoopy after the wreck, but it must have shaken her. She needed to get right back on, even if it wasn't on her own horse.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

not to bash but I agree- my own horses health would be more important to me than continuing the show too.

Good for the girl that lent her horse- shows a lot about someones character to have that kinda hospitality.

I don't see the problem with staying to ride if the vet checked out the horse and somebody close had already volunteered to take it home?

Rodeo communities are the best IMO I'll never hesitate to help out a friend with horses if they're in need

*Insert something witty*

OUCH!! Glad everyone is ok.

I dont think there is anything stupid about what happened. Horses get hurt just as much jumping and doing cross country and racing and such as during western gymkhana games... When there is high speed and horses, accidents can and do happen.

My hat off to the girl who "donated" her horse. Sportsmanship is everything and Im glad to see people still maintaining a friendly, helpful attitude during competition.
