    Default Bummed and in need of jingles

    I heard from my parents today that my former trainer in OH was in a severe accident. He was helping to load a horse in a trailer when it ran out and knocked him over backwards. He suffered a skull fracture with intracranial bleeding and was air lifted to the nearest university hospital. Apparently he still recognizes his wife, but goes in and out of consciousness and has a feeding tube. Prognosis is obviously very uncertain.

    This man helped me learn how to connect with Missy (when I didn't understood the hot chestnut mare personality), owned Pixie's sire and started Pixie for me. He's in his 70s and has been training and giving lessons as long as I can remember. I would periodically take a lesson or two when I go back to OH because I get more from 1 of his lessons than 10 with most other instructors. I'm just shocked and saddened. This is the last person on earth I would expect to get hurt by a horse. He's very, very experienced and very careful.

    I know he and his wife are very religious and would appreciate any prayers/jingles. I go back to OH for a family event in another 10 days, so I'm hoping to be able to visit.

    PS I'm deliberately not naming him out of respect for his privacy but will answer PMs. He would be well known to anyone in the western crowd in Butler Co, OH.

    Equinelaundry, I was thinking the same thing...

    Regardless, jingles from a former resident of the area. He and his family will be in my thoughts.

    Wishing him the best, quick recovery.

    Such accidents happen so fast.
    I saw a horse loading up a ramp miss the ramp's edge with a hind foot, jerk his foot up and hit a groom in the belly with his hock.
    The groom was injured internally, rushed to the hospital and died two hours later.

    Plenty of jingles. With horses, the unexpected is always a possibility, and it can happen to anyone.
