Services are pending for a 17-year-old senior at Douglas County High School, critically injured during a rodeo accident in Byers.
Stuart Mazanec of Larkspur had gone with about ten other teens to learn bareback riding at a camp run by family friend and rodeo expert Jay Brentner last Saturday.
Brentner says Stuart finished his ride and started to get down from the horse, when his hand got tangled in the rigging. The horse started running, with Stuart alongside, but the animal soon tripped and fell on top of him.
He was airlifted to a hospital with a broken jaw, and injuries to his heart. Family members say Stuart was alert, smiling and talking, but his body began failing Wednesday afternoon. He was taken off life support that evening.
