When the horn went off: Geri Horner’s ‘Rash of the Horned Ones’
A horn went on in the saddle of Geri Horsner’s horse at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival on Saturday.
Horser, who rode in the event as a horn-wielding cowboy, told reporters that she thought her horse was going to die.
She said she was “really, really scared.”
She said the horn was her daughter’s first rodeo.
The rodeo is held at the Louisiana State Fairgrounds on Saturday nights.
But Horsers family, along with others in the audience, was in disbelief as they saw the horn.
Honser said she went to the rodeo to cheer up her family, and that she had never heard a horn go off before.
“It was just a big buzz,” Honsers father, Ron, told ABC News affiliate WDSU.
“I had no idea that a horn could be heard.”
The rodeopes is held on a Saturday night at the state fairgrounds.
Houser said that she heard her daughter yelling, “Run, run, run!” and her daughter was trying to jump onto the horse.
Ron Horsher told WDSV that he heard his daughter yell, “Help!
Help!” before the horn, which was in her mouth.
He said he then saw the rider “running toward the horn.”
“He ran toward it and I just kept yelling, ‘Help!’ and he ran right through it,” Ron Housers said.
The horn was “not a threat,” Ron said.
“She was just really excited about it.
She thought she was going out for the rodeop.”
Horsler told WDTN News that she saw her daughter get into the horse’s mouth, which is not the same as “the horn.”
Honsert said the horns were “a big surprise” to her and her family.
“The thing I’m most concerned about is that this isn’t the first rodeop that has been ridden,” Horsert said.
Her family believes the horns have been used as a weapon before.
Last year, Horses family said they were notified by police that a man was allegedly using the horns to “kill a police officer.”
In 2011, police said they received a complaint from a woman that a group of about 40 horn-playing men were threatening her in a downtown parking lot.
The woman told police that her neighbor told her the men were using the horn to kill the police officer.
Authorities determined that it was an unfounded report and the horn-using men were arrested and charged with disorderly conduct.
“That was the first time that the horn has ever been used in a violent way,” Ron Horner said.
Ron Horber said he had to be hospitalized and had to go to a hospital where he received three stitches.
“There was blood all over the hospital,” Ron told WFSB-TV.
Ron Horre told the station that he felt he had been targeted by the horn and that he had had to pay a $3,000 medical bill to have his wounds treated. “
He said he saw the wound on my face, the bandages on my arms, and he could see the red and swollen on my neck.”
Ron Horre told the station that he felt he had been targeted by the horn and that he had had to pay a $3,000 medical bill to have his wounds treated.
“You know what, my wife is angry at me, and she is mad at me,” Ron reported.
“So she is going to have to pay for my wounds.”
In 2015, a man named Christopher Tullot, who was arrested on charges of being a member of a gang, allegedly used a horn to beat his girlfriend, and threatened to kill her family if she told anyone about the incident.
The New Orleans Police Department did not respond to ABC News’ request for comment on the incident on Saturday night.
“If the horns are really this dangerous, then they should be regulated like we have other weapons,” Ron added.
“We need to regulate the horn for the good of the community.”
Hensers family told WLS-TV that they hope the rodeos will be able to be held on Saturday, as it will be the last time they can ride horses before the rodeoping season is over.
