Last year, a friend of mine had a traumatic experience on horseback when she got tangled up in a horse’s stirrups, and was thrown to the ground as the horse approached a jump.  The jump wasn’t even that high. Although my friend sustained only minor injuries, she knew the only way to get over the trauma was to get back on a horse.

One day that following spring in the country, an opportunity arose for another girl to do just that, get back on the horse. She took a moment to get to know the mare, then with caution, mounted it, while her mother watched.  The horse took off in a gentle trot.  All was going well until suddenly, the horse started galloping.  The girl was frantic.  She held onto the reins for dear life, as she bounced up and down.  I could see the terror in her eyes, as I watched, unable to help.

The mare galloped at a furious pace, unaware how terrified the rider on her back had become.  The girl’s foot got caught in the stirrup.  The harder she tried to free her foot, the more the stirrup twisted around her leg.  She girl let out a loud scream.

Just then, the Walmart manager came to the rescue, and unplugged the ride.

And so it was.
