Horse Show Accident

The last circuit show of the year didn’t go so well.  Showing was going okay but when my daughter asked for a canter, the pony said no.  She did a little jump, planted her front feet and let out a buck. My daughter went over her, landed on her head and then flipped over.  She’s okay but it was very scary!

Thankfully, we have a great group of people in our horse project. One of the moms is an emergency room nurse and she was there in a flash helping my daughter.  One of our young alumnis is also a nurse so she came right away too. They were so good and kept everyone calm until the paramedics got there.  Other people came and helped with the horses. 

Another thing I was grateful for was that Flash has gotten so good at loading into a trailer that it was no problem for our friends to load him up to get him home. While they waited for our friend to get there, the 4-H kids all made sure he had everything he needed. 

We were only at the hospital for a couple hours while they did a few tests to make sure nothing was broken. She had a mild concussion and a headache to go with it but that was it.  She’s very sore today but we’ll take it!  It could’ve been so much worse!!

  1. sounds like you have a good support team. always good to get a fall checked out medically when a rider has landed on their head or does not bounce right back up in the blink of an eye. Good to know she is OK.
