My grandchildren take horse back riding lessons and I'm very GREEN where horses are concerned, but I learn by watching. Does anyone know WHAT the woman was doing with the horse at the time she got kicked? Horses seem to "spook" easily so I wonder if she innocently did something that just frightened the horse....

Our Prayers are with her and her family! She is an amazing young lady and comes from a wonderful family! Beautiful horses that are kept so well. We send our best to the whole family!
