"He spooked at something while being ridden and bolted," described Allen. "The rider came off and the horse ran toward the barn. He got into a freak accident and slid into the side of the barn and lacerated his right hind leg about 4 inches above the fetlock on the back of the leg. It looked like a knife cut it; he severed the superficial and deep digital flexor tendons, ligaments, cut both branches of the arterial blood supply, and nerves.Memories of Teddy O'Connor."My experience with injuries like this are that the chances of reattaching the vascular supply and nerve supply and reattaching the tendons and ligaments is almost zero," said Allen. "The horse was remarkably calm and let me examine him completely.
K2) see printed e-mail from USEF and heard from friend who is giving up eventing and doesn't want her daughter doing it either:1. If a horse has a rotational fall, horse and rider are suspended from competing for three or six months2. If a horse has a rotational fall, horse and rider lose their qualification at the level at which they are competing.3. If a rider falls off on the course they are eliminated.4. Open oxers on courses at every level are made frangible.5. If a horse falls related to a jump both horse and rider are suspended from competing for one month.
