Courtney King-Dye is a famed American Olympian whose life at age 32 was shattered by a horse accident. The Olympic equestrian was knocked unconscious when a horse she was training tipped over, causing her to fall. She was immediately taken to a hospital, where the doctors detected a career and life threatening skull fracture. Courtney was lucky to have gotten treatment in time. After recuperating for months, she made a return to horse riding.
Next time you ride, take all the variables into account. Don’t go riding if you are rushed, or feel under the weather, or have too many other things on your mind. Give your horse not only your time, but also your full attention.
I was not long in school before I met my future husband. Again I did not take a stand when my gut was signaling this was not a good idea. Friends and family were telling me I was having the “normal” pre-marriage jitters. During my 5-year marriage I did start a horse equestrian appreal business for competitive equestrians. Remember what I mentioned above about my sewing abilities? Well there are others who professed to me they were skilled in doing the work required. This did not prove to be the case and finding suitable people to do the work was practically impossible. When I did find someone, she was limited with her time. Today she and I are the best of friends.

Second, shop around for a vet. In Atlanta, there are city vets and country vets. The city vets have large offices, lots of staff and, consequently, higher overhead. Country vets run smaller operations, have less expenses and often charge less for their services. Higher cost doesn’t always mean better service.
The Glass Bridge has become Las Vegas’ hottest “off-Strip” attraction. More than 1 million people have “walked the sky” since the bridge opened in 2007. It’s a fabulous structure: Made of special glass, it extends 70 feet over the Canyon, wherein you’re suspended 4,000 feet above the Colorado River.
Be careful leaving a treat bucket in your horse’s stall. We often leave a bucket of carrots or other supplements in the stall with the horse as we run off after a ride to our busy lives but it’s really quite dangerous as the horse can easily get its hoof stuck between the metal handle and the plastic. Play it safe if you must leave something in there and opt for a rubber flat feeding bowl.
