The accident occurred while the agency's mounted patrol unit trained new recruits on how to handle large crowds.

Thank God for that ballistic vest. I hope you recover quickly and return to duty soon. Find that horse again and show it who is the boss and you will mentally heal faster and be better prepared for the future. Don't give up.
