Prayers up for Josh Ward.

He was involved in a horse accident this past weekend that resulted in a pretty serious injury. Surgery was needed to stop internal bleeding, and effectually save his life, however the surgery was a success and Josh is now recovering.

Unfortunately, internal bleeding will force even the toughest of cowboys to cancel some shows, and Josh will be spending a few weeks on the mend.

He shared the following update to Instagram:

“Sunday August 8th, Josh was involved in a horse riding accident that resulted in serious abdominal injuries and internal bleeding. He underwent surgery to stop the bleeding, the surgery was a success.

We are all very thankful for the surgeon and his team at Memorial Hermann who saved his life. Josh will be in the hospital this week and will require a few weeks at home to fully recover.

Unfortunately, there will be some rescheduled dates that will be announced tomorrow. We ask that you keep him in your prayers for a full and speedy recovery. The family advises us that no visitors are allowed at this time. Heather & Jayce thank you for all your prayers & love.”

If you were planning on catching a Josh Ward show in the next few weeks, keep your eyes on his social media for rescheduled dates:

“Thank y’all for all the kind words. For more info regarding these shows, stay tuned on the venues and my social media for updates and rescheduled dates. Can’t wait to get back out there on the road soon.”

Cue up the “A Cowboy Can”
