Courtney King Dye had a fall in the dressage arena
Rebecca Howard had a rotational fall at Pine Hill, as did Jan Byyny and Rebecca Lee
Reading the article, above, I saw Karen O'Connor also had a spill.
It's a dangerous sport, no doubt. Even the dressage riders aren't exempt from injury.
I won't rant on about helmet use. I'm as guilty as the next girl, most of the time I do, sometimes I take it off for parts of the ride, some days I forget when I hop on Romeo, and regret it later.
But please remember to be careful, but not scared. Ride with courage and caution. But keep on riding...
Prayers being sent up for all of these riders as they recover physically, and emotionally from their accidents.
