“I think maybe that was her last ride,” Todd, 76, told the outlet. “I wouldn’t let her ride again.”

Todd claimed the horse had previously been “gentle” and “amazing.”

“I was there,” he said. “When I saw her thrown off, I couldn’t believe it. I was in shock. I ran over there, and she was just on the floor, and she knew that she’d broken her leg straightaway.”
