Grave News

The second girl from the right in the above photo is Kaylee. This photo was taken when a group of riders from Jenny's farm came to pick Daisy and I up at our house for a ride last spring. 

Today Kaylee went for a ride on her horse (not the one pictured), helmetless. Tragically, she fell and the impact of her head hitting the road was fatal. She died instantly.

Please, ladies and gentlemen, strap one on. Your brain is worth it. Your life is worth it. These things happen. Life happens, no matter how great a rider you are. 

My thoughts and prayers are with all affected by Kaylee's passing. 
Wordless Wednesday will resume next week.

I'm so sorry to hear it. How tragic - my heart goes out to her family. I agree with you about helmets - I took some nasty falls last summer and I can tell you- my helmet saved me at least once. Literally.
