Man who got bucked off horse sues tour company
The Oregonian reports Thomas Williams claims he was injured last summer at Ocean Trails Riding Stables near Pacific City. The business provides hour-long tours for $55.
According to the suit, a guide’s horse bit Williams’ horse during a tour, causing Williams’ horse to buck and throw him to the ground.
Williams said a guide instructed him to remount the horse and return to the stable. As Williams climbed back on, the horse bucked again and Williams fell.
Williams said he injured a finger, leg and knee in the fall and aggravated a pre-existing knee injury.
Attorneys for both sides did not return calls or email messages on Friday.
