Re: [RC] Accident - Kristen A Fisher

This is the kind of hindsight I am looking for in avoiding accidents - it is possible this could have been avoided if the rider had been watching the trail more closely (no criticism, just observation). I have also heard of horses tripping on roots and the team takes a tumble. I try to watch the trail for possible tricky areas and steer around them (not that this will prevent everything from happening) but for example, if you had noticed and steered around something could you have avoided your wreck?

You know, how when things are going along just great, that little something
that comes along to screw it all up? In my case it was a chunk of rolled up
barbed wire, just about 10 feet or less rolled into a ball about 2 feet in
diameter. It was dusk, and I was thinking more about getting back to the trailer
than I was about watching where we were going. Riding my Anglo mare with Barb,
