There was an incredible story on EventingNation.com recently about 18 horses that were evacuated after a flash flood destroyed a local stable in Virginia. Skyeler Icke Voss is an event rider and trainer who was competing at the American Eventing Championships in Georgia, September 8th – 11th when she received a call that floodwaters threatened her farm back home. Staff assured her precautions had been taken and all the horses were safe.
A half hour later, she received another call saying the rising waters had turned into a flash flood, and the horses were being evacuated. Miraculously, all 18 horses were rescued before the flood waters overcame the farm.
