Sisters man badly hurt in horse wreck
Sisters-area horse trainer Chad Hurtley suffered serious head and facial injuries on Tuesday, November 14, when a horse he was working with either kicked or stepped on him in a round pen.
According to Hurtley's friend Beth Lynn Matanane, Hurtley was working a big draft cross horse in a round pen, preparing to go out on a trail ride with another friend. The woman went into the house and later found Hurtley coming up her porch bloody and dazed. According to Matanane, a neighbor reported that the big horse reared and threw Hurtley, and either kicked or stepped on his face.
The friend drove Hurtley to the hospital in Redmond and he was subsequently transported to Oregon Heath Sciences University in Portland where he was to have the first of multiple expected surgeries.
Matanane has established a GoFundMe account to benefit Hurtley at www.gofundme.com/chad-hurtley-medical-fund. Updates on his condition may also be found at that site.
