    True Story

    A Royal Marine narrowly escaped serious injury recently when he attempted horseback riding with no prior experience.

    After mounting his horse unassisted, the horse immediately began moving.

    As it galloped along at a steady and rhythmic pace, the Marine, who has not been named, began to slip sideways from the saddle.

    Although attempting to grab for the horse's mane the Marine could not get a firm grip.

    He then threw his arms around the horse's neck but continued to slide down the side of the horse.

    The horse galloped along, seemingly oblivious to its slipping rider.

    Finally, losing his grip, the rider attempted to leap away from the horse and throw himself to safety…

    However, his foot became entangled in the stirrup, leaving him at the mercy of the horse's pounding hooves as his head and upper body repeatedly struck the ground.

    Moments away from unconsciousness and possible death, to his great fortune a Para, shopping at Tesco saw him and quickly unplugged the horse!!!

    How does this happen.
    I haven't heard this for years then suddenly I get it sent by E Mail to me by nearly all my contacts and then it turns up here as well !!
    Sometimes, not this particular one, but similar ones, suddenly get resurrected and even turn up on TV.
    Strange isn't it.
