    [RC] Runaways - Lori Chandler

    Remember a friend telling me once, "you can ride as fast as they can run & you don't go anywhere in a circle". She was a trainer on the race track & I thought at the time , "sure easy for you to say, you ride big, fast, scary horses cause you WANT to".

    Then it happened to me...alone with my runaway horse & God...I remembered her words, somehow that relaxed me enough not to contribute to the wreck & got into a large circle & got smaller etc. finally stopped.

    Now I think the key is NOT TO PANIC. You can't always get in a circle, but if you panic you can't think.
