Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
May 22 WARNING Jack Attack by Ann Ramsey
park review stars; one to five I am writing to warn other trail riders about an incident that happened to me on 5/15/17 while riding the new trails that go by the Living History Farm. A jack got loose & tried to attack me & my horse. My little 5 year old TW mare ran off with me trying to escape the jaws of the jack. My 2 friends got off to control their horses but the jack kept chasing me & my mare. I was terrified & feel truly blessed that I did not end up in the hospital or dead. This animal should not be left at K.M.S.P.
