Last Day of School Horse Accident.....

May 26, 2017
On the last day of school, Andrea invited Molly to go horse back riding with her family up Payson Canyon.  She was so excited to go!  They hauled the horses clear up.  Molly and Drea brushed the horses and just had fun being with them.  Then they started off on their ride.

 They hadn't made it very far when they came to a part of the trail that was very narrow downhill slope with another steep slope off on the side that lead down to a stream.  Andrea was in the saddle and Molly was riding off the saddle just behind her.  The horse started to trot down the hill and was bouncing the girls pretty good.  Andrea had the advantage of holding onto the saddle horn but Molly was on her own.  She was bouncing quite a bit and got bounced right off - and she had such a tight grip around Andrea, that she pulled her off with her!  Both girls went tumbling down the slope and right into the stream!  Molly was devastated!  As you can see from the look on her face!  Poor baby girl!  They were both super wet and had their fair share of bumps and scrapes.

RJ MADE Molly get back on the horse to ride it out, which I'm really grateful for.  She was scared to get back on at first but she did and all in all, she had a great time!  She was super sad that one of her nails got broken, ha ha!
When they got back to the truck, They stripped off their soaking wet pants and tied RJ's big jackets around their waists.  Molly said when she took off her boots, that water ran out of them!
Jamie doctored up their scrapes and they came home with a few bruises and a great story to tell1
