Ashley McBryde Offers Riding Accident Update – Everett Post
Ashley McBryde provides more information on her horseback riding accident last week that took her to hospital.
In a note posted to Facebook Over the weekend, the singer shared that she and friends went for a horseback ride in Montana hours before her scheduled show at Wilma on Wednesday. Ashley says she first enjoyed a gentle ride on a young female named Jenny. But on the way back to the barn, something scared the horse, and Ashley’s foot had slipped out of the stirrup and couldn’t correct it in time.
“We passed the ranch owner to whom I shouted, ‘I lost the stirrup that I can cross,’ and I did. Jenny wasn’t trying to throw me out at all. But she was moving faster than I could stay with just one stirrup and a loss of central balance, ”she explains.
Ashley says when she hit the ground she thought she only hit her shoulder. But during a trip to the emergency room, scans showed she had a “pretty hard” concussion and needed to have her scalp sewn up.
“You know me, I wouldn’t postpone a show for bumps and bruises. But at the moment, I am not able to walk without assistance. We are in contact with my doctors and take everything they say seriously, ”she continues. “And as soon as I can walk through a scene again, that’s exactly where you’ll find me.” Take care of each other. I come back soon.”
Ashley postponed two of her shows last week due to the crash. She’s in the middle of her headlining This Town Talks Tour and will open for Luc Combs on his What You See is What You Get tour.
