It was Boyd Martin's barn and unfortunately 6 horses didn't make it. The other 4 are currently at New Bolton. There is still no word yet on what people can do to help.

Ugggh I can't believe that they got it so wrong!!!

My sympathies go out to Boyd, his staff and the horse owners.

6 abc got the story wrong. Here is the link to the real story.

I will change the title of this post because it makes me sick. There is a HUGE difference between all horses made it out and 6 died and 4 are at the hospital.

Shame on abc news for not checking their story.:mad:

Updates are in eventing

Godspeed to those six who did not make it. I just cannot get my mind around this.

So very very sorry to Boyd, and all those heros who risked their lives to save those who made it out.

So sad! His WEG's mount and long time bestie, Neville Bardos, is still in ICU. Jingles to all.
