Well onehorse were glad that nobody was hurt and that the good ole' boy is OK. If there's any positive aspect to this it may have been a blessing that he didn't have his "wild episode" while you were out far off into the wilderness where things could've been worse. There's no doubt about your great knowledge of horses and you and your wife are the best at knowing what's best for the horse. I respect your decision 110%. Hopefully your wife will feel better after reading this.
