Chats- postponed

Hello, friends. Chats on the Farmhouse Porch will be postponed until Wednesday morning. D3 was riding Molly. She was loping up a grassy hill when the horse bucked. She tried an "emergency dismount", but that is very difficult on such a tall horse. She fell on her backside first, then her head hit the ground. Had she not tried the dismount, her head may have been first. She hit the ground hard enough that SHE BROKE HER HELMET. A big crack up the back of the helmet. Thankfully, her helmet protected her head. Five hours in the ER told us that she has a mild concussion. This is the second daughter to have a horseback riding accident resulting in a concussion. The last one was quite serious and the doctor told me that she would have been killed or paralyzed had that daughter not had on a helmet. Thank you to the Troxel company for making such great riding helmets! Please keep your families safe by reminding folks to wear helmets for biking and horseback riding. See you tomorrow on the porch!    -Patrice

  3. Praise God for keeping her safe. Why is it our daughters insist on riding? I tell you, watching them fall is horrible. My daughter fell a few weeks back and it scared the life out of me. She was thrown over the horse's head! Ikes! Anyway, I am happy to hear she will be okay and I am also very glad there are safety helmets for our use.

  5. Oh Patrice, that could have been a real tragedy. Thank God that your daughter is OK and that her helmet protected her. Concussions are serious enough on their own. That would make me very nervous for future horse riding. I'm sure that she will be sore. Prayers for D3.

  8. Phew.... thank Heaven for helmets!
    I can just picture that fall - and the momentum, from a large horse, would make the head really slam into the ground with a lot of fury.
    I am so glad she only suffered a mild concussion.
    Take your time. We'll chat when you are ready!
    Prayers to D3 for a quick recovery!

  17. I'm glad your daughter is okay. Okay? Wait, she's not okay. A concussion isn't okay, but you get what I'm saying. I'm happy things aren't worse than they could have been otherwise. God gives us wisdom to do what we can for ourselves such as wearing proper headgear and the rest is in His hands. It looks like He gave charge to His angels in keeping your daughters from serious harm. Every since Christopher Reeve's accident I have been even more so less inclined to ever wanting to mount a horse again. Sorry Wendall! Get well D3, you're in my thoughts & prayers!!!
