more excitement than you wanted

This was posted on FB....


  1. Crazy picture. How can you ever prepare for something like that on the trail. Wow!

  2. I wish I knew how this turned out! And who took the picture? Just before both horses bolted!? I hope it wasn't too far back to the barn, because I have the feeling the riders had to walk it. Wonder if there were any broken bones.

  3. OMG! I can just picture this happening to me. Like Deb I wonder who took the picture and what happened next.

  4. I had something similar happen, although thank goodness not quite *that* close.

    In the woods on Ft. Lewis Army base, thousands of acres, hacking alone on my horse when a large deer(elk?) leapt onto the trail what would have been maybe 15 or 20 feet away except that we had strangely levitated about 40 feet farther away. I lost a stirrup but was otherwise good.

    Since we were both initially convinced it was a cougar, I was cool with my horse flying out of harm's way. When we realized it was a herbivore, we were slightly less alarmed. The poor deer(elk?) however was freaked out by my horse's neon reflective/glowing quarter sheet and fled.

    My horse was quite a bit *up* for the rest of that ride. Not much fun.

  5. OMG!! What else can I say? That looks just crazy!
