Tough Break

Oh dear god, nightmare alert, nightmare alert. When Thea Maxfield fell from her horse she had no idea she’d snapped her neck until she went to stand up and her head stayed where it was. Ewh. Known as a “hangman’s break” Maxfield had to cup her hands around her head and then carry it  to  avoid being stomped to death by the now distressed horse. After staggering to safety while holding her head in place she was rushed to hospital. Miraculously she has made a full recovery and back riding.

  3. Yea, I couldn’t deal with that one either. I’d just die of shock. Well, also of the broken neck I guess.

  4. Shouldn’t a ‘hangman’s break’ by definition be kinda ‘fatal’ ?
