While on a tour, a horse was passing a “cherry picker” and something spooked the horse. The horse started walking backwards and the carriage wagon jack knifed and got stuck to the “cherry picker.” The horse fell to its knees and stayed that way until it was unhooked from the wagon. The horse was walked back to the barn. It had scratches on its knees. A vet checked the horse and recommended cold hosing and Bute for several days and the next 5 days off.
