In light of past posts I have made, “Evacuating Horses in an Emergency: 7 Tips from Lessons Learned”, and our latest “Equine Athlete of the Month: APHA Stallion ‘Smooth Gambling Trouble’ “, who was such an inspiration to so many, I found it quite timely that Sports Illustrated ran an article on US Olympic Team hopeful, Boyd Martin.
In May, 2011, Martin’s barn was set ablaze in an electrical fire, nearly costing the lives of all his horses and staff members.
I wanted to share Martin’s story to remind us all how much things can change in an instant, for better or for worse, no matter who we are. But as Martin shows, you can’t let the downs in life affect the ups.
I encourage you all to check out the above mentioned past posts to refresh your memories on fire safety, as well as read anohter truly inspirational story about overcoming obstacles.
