    Default Help finding TBI thread

    The search function is not helping here.

    A few years ago, a young teenager was killed when she fell at a highly rated show. The situation was that she appeared fine at first but her brain swelled and she could not be helped in time. The resulting thread was an eye opener as far as COTHers discussing and admitting to brain injuries.

    Can anyone remember the name of the show or otherwise help me find that thread?

    Thank you!

    I do vaguely remember that. IIRC it happened at the old Littlewood. I think it was a junior rider as well

    No, that is not the one. This was more recent, like maybe summer of '11. And it was a teenage girl.

    But what a horrible thing to happen to the girl at Littlewood. Sobering.

    No, it was at a big H/J show. It was a head injury. There were COTHers who knew the girl and rode with her.

    It was just an amazing thread, with so many people talking about the effects of concussions. One poster in particular admitted a concussion after which she was never a good student again and lost her math skills. There is a concussion thread right now on the dressage forum and I wanted to post a link to it.

    I don't quite remember that but in summer of 2011 I was moving 2000 miles so I wasn't online much.

    I can attest to the struggles of living with a TBI. My dad sustained a severe closed brain stem injury in a construction accident before I was born. He was not supposed to live and spent 6mos in a coma. While he certainly is a miracle to be alive and fully functioning, he will never be "normal".

    Might it be the children's jumper accident that happened at the Kentucky Spring HS?

    I was not there when it happened, but IIRC, I was there the next day and everyone was talking about it.

    I know the girl died, but I cannot remember the exact cause of death.

    I finally googled the right combination of terms and it came up.
