After Carriage Accident, Community Rallies to Help Injured Equestrian

A carriage accident earlier this year left an Epping woman in serious condition in a local hospital. Now, the injured woman’s friends, husband, and horse farm have banded together to help raise the funds she may need in order to travel the long road to recovery.

The accident occurred during a hay ride event at Applecrest Farm Orchard in Hampton Falls, New Hampshire. The woman was working with a team of large Belgian horses and offering hay rides to the orchard’s visitors. During the hay rides, the mechanical equipment on one of the wagons malfunctioned, spooking the horses. The woman stepped in front of the horses to calm them and prevent them from stampeding or doing any other damage to people in the immediate area. While trying to calm the horses, however, she was severely injured.

The accident has left the woman’s husband, an armed forces veteran and three-time Purple Heart recipient with disabilities of his own, alone in the work of running the couple’s horse farm. Seeing that he was struggling to keep up with the farm’s daily chores and pay the bills, friends and colleagues founded the Ledgewood Belgian Farm Fund to help the family meet the costs and keep the farm running while the injured equestrian recovers from her injuries.

Severe injuries often result in high costs, and the impact of an injury can extend far beyond medical bills. Losing a loved one’s help in running a family home or business may leave others scrambling to catch up on the work that he or she once provided.
