I am a professional horse rider. Several years ago, I was given a horse because the owners said I was the only person who could get along with him. After months of rehab as a riding horse I took him into a big field for our first canter together. When he saw his horse friends, he began throwing his head violently around. He stumbled and fell completely dowm on his side. I did not fall with him. I was held aloft six feet in the air as I watched the horse fall, straighten himself and then get back up. I felt hands under my armpits holding me in the air the entire time. The horse arose directly under me and I was once again sitting in the saddle. Realizing what had just happened, I vaulted from the horses back and knelt and thanked God and my guardian angel for saving me. I vowed that this horse would never be ridden again and found him a home as a pasture companion to other retired horses.
