    I think they did what they thought was best and safest. When in a situation like this, it kind of gives you an adrenaline rush and your mind goes blank so you act without thinking.

    This video is really old, years old, none of the horses were badly hurt. I guess the first horse was acting up in the warm up ring but the horses owner entered him in the class anyway, the horses owner got suspended by AHA for a year and had to pay for all the damages.

    My horse has acted up in the warm up arena and I still entered her in a class and got 1st...that's why they have warm-ups.

    really, so if your horse is bucking and kicking like that, you're going to enter the ring? That my friend, is a bad decision.

    Sometimes horses act differently in classes than in warm-ups because during warm ups there are usually more people than in the classes themselves..btu I've learned that 4-H is a lot different than real shows so it could be different.

    If you've got a horse that is acting up in the warmup ring, and I don't mean just little things, I mean like behaviors that could be dangerous to the horse, rider, or other horses and riders, the horse should not be entered in the class. It's better to miss one class than to have fines and injuries to worry about. And not to mention, if you are showing at this level, then you should have enough common sense to pull the horse from the class and prevent stuff like this from happening.

    This was a very scary situation, and it is very lucky that no one was severely injured.
    It must have been very terrifying, and I also agree that the announcer did a great job in trying to control the situation.

    Oh my goodness, that had me on the end of my seat, that is terrible and everyone yelling "WHOA WHOA" "STTOOOOP!" and yelling and shouting certainly didn't help, at least the horses are ok.

    Woooooooooooow....
    That was outta control!!!!!!!!! And to think, the entire time I was watching that, I was thinking: "Man, that horse has a nice canter on him/her." Idiot.
    I'm glad the last horse was OK, he seemed a little in shock when he was laying on the ground there.

    I don't think I've ever witnessed something like that! I've seen the occasional crash with trotters, but nothing quite like that. Thank goodness no-one got hurt. As you watch its just one thing after another after another! Man...
