When the Going Gets Tough,

We see it in harness racing, and we see it in eventing.  They’re two very different sports, but both with their own sets of risks. While these moments are frequently outweighed by the amazing, breathtaking moments that everyone in the horse world strives and lives for, they still happen. And they suck. There’s no way around it.
