Hit-and-run

Very sadly, a man driving a pick-up truck struck a rider and her horse in Collingwood, Ontario. The rider sustained minor injuries while her horse did not fare nearly as well. The full extent of what transpired is not known, however, we do know that it was a man in the truck, and that he fled the scene after the incident.
Let's hope they catch him.

Jessica Ruppel, riding Bella. A brief description of the horse's injuries and the suffering she endured after being hit nearly brought tears to my eyes.

So sad. We have many riders around us on the roads and this time of year is especially bad. The horses are more spirited; my trainer used to call it "spring fever". Road riding is always dangerous, but sometimes a necessity to get to habitual trails.

Oh, that's terrible!

They've paved the road I live on:(

TONS more traffic, and I was treated to the sound of drag-racing on the weekend.

That poor horse..
Oh, my, the poor rider.
Stupid drivers.
SLOW DOWN.
