What an appalling thing to happen, have known three horses this has happened to. Terrifying and nothing anyone can do. So very sorry to hear this.

So very sorry for your loss. Sweet looking mare they break our hearts sometimes you have to try and remember the good times which in time you will.

Recently bought into cob culture.
I am so sorry for your loss. I also feel for your freelancer.

I have had this with one I just bought, it was awful, I was in shock as it was so unexpected (passed 5 stage vetting 24 hours previously!). It was not the most pleasant thing to witness either, I feel for your freelancer. She must know she did nothing wrong, but it is difficult not to blame yourself.

I had that one PMed, it was simply an electrical heart attack, no rupture, nothing. I was out with a friend years ago, theirs ruptured an aorta. After mine, my vet said it is more common than people think.

Hugs all round. X

Hugs to you and your freelancer. I too have known this happen in a 3yr old that was in a trailer. Loaded fine and was dead less than half a mile away at a new field.

How awful for you and her rider. I think she will not have suffered and I am so glad you could have her brought home for her friend to do the thing they do and nobody was hurt. Three small positives to try and ease what must have been a dreadful day for you. RIP Fizz

Hope you are OK x
