    Default Jingles for trainers injured at Thermal

    I just got the iJump blast that Archie Cox was injured at Thermal. The press release said fracture hip/separated pelvis. Ouch! Last week's iJump email blast brought news of John French injuring his ankle. Best wishes and a speedy recovery to both of them. That's two bright spots out of the hunter rings at Thermal.

    Between those guys and the injuries at WEF so far, it's already been a rough year. Somebody needs to turn down the dial on the gravity!

    Hope everyone has a quick and smooth recovery.

    Best wishes to all for a speedy recovery. Truly, all are a loss, even for a short time, for our sport.

    Must have been on one of Archie's rounds, as he showed yesterday. John French didn't show yesterday

    I just heard from an impeccable source that Archie was walking a horse back to the barn and the horse slipped. Archie threw his weight beck to get the horse's head up -- the horse never did go down. But just by that motion, while still on the horse, Archie broke his hip and pelvis.

    He was in such pain that he could not get off the horse. He had to be given morphine just to get him off and the ambulance pulled up right next to the horse so he could be loaded in easily.

    He was air lifted to LA so he could have the best surgeons work on him (his father arranged that)

    Wow that's crazy that he could break his hip and pelvis from a horse slipping.

    it doesnt necessarily mean he had bad bones. it means he twisted or turned the wrong way and put the right force on the bones to make them break. i think i have strong bones and i shattered my leg by slipping on ice. i twisted it the right way to allow hte bones to shatter.

    That's exactly what I heard too, Lord Helpus. That just sounds so beyond painful. Archie's a great guy, jingles for a speedy recovery.

    And Holly Shepherd broke her ankle pretty bad a few weeks ago. Freak accident at her barn apparently. But she's showing at gulfport now with it all wrapped up. Even won a class on her grand prix horse. Hope everyone has a speedy recovery! Not a good 2013 so far!

    Just flashed by on my FB that Archie leaves the hospital tomorrow AM. Turns out he "only" had a separated pelvis. Unlike the last photo of him in the hospital he wasn't talking on his phone in this one.

    This is terrible, hoping for a quick recovery for all!

    But actually....the water isn't filtered (Thermal), so if horse has sensitive skin, do need to be careful. No hosing down without shampoo. And the grounds are on an old Native American burial ground, so the ring crew/office staff does burn sage and have certain rituals so that it is known that they "come in peace".

    Thank goodness! It still seems crazy that he could do that without actually coming off the horse, but it's better news for his recovery, anyway.
