I'm glad no one was injured, but it really is terrible how horribly they handled that. Where were the men on quarter horses in western saddles ready to herd up any wild horse? Horses are herd animals, and that really is the safest way to handle this situation.
That was pretty nuts. But I am not sure why the anger and tears either.
And I'm not sure how they could have handled it but to stand in front of a scared horse going at full speed is just plain stupid, lol
It angers me because of the stupidity. The guy standing out in front of the horse like that's going to make it stop. The guy who grabbed the reigns of the horse as it sped by, did he really think that was going to work? The people in the stands screaming. It made me cry because I just thought those horses must be terrified in all of that, with all the commotion and chaos. I know we all can't say how we would or would not act in a situation but what I think could have avoided that whole thing is if the driver of the initial horse turned him straight into the wall. He was obviously trying to stop the horse at first by pulling on the reigns. When that didnt work, where did he go? Did he fall out or did he bail? Posted via Mobile Device
