    Looks like the saddle was slipping

    Poor horse. Got his mouth hurt bad, no wonder he reared and thrashed his head about like that.

    Rider was off balance when the camera panned to him. The horse looks like it had already been acting up before we got to see the rear and fall. I think the rider bailed (smart move) and the horse lost it's balance on the slick pavement during the rear. Been there done that. Sucks. Poor rider!

    Poor guys! Glad to see that no one was too badly injured though. That was a pretty nasty rear!

    Lucky, upon re-watching the vid, I do believe you are correct. The saddle appeared to be slipping off the right side of the horse and that's what made it look like the rider was getting off.

    That opens up a whole new world of possibilities with the horse spooking, getting the saddle off balance and getting spooked by that...or the rider just couldn't ride with a balanced seat and caused the saddle to slide off just by being so unbalanced.

    Saddle slipping . That totally explains why the rider leaned forward so much to try an recover. Been there done that.

    Wasn't that the Roy Rogers tribute group? The last horse in the line "side stepped" the whole way throwing a fit! Hope that guy made it.
    I was kind of bummed at HGTV's coverage, it was like look "pretty horses"... 1 second look, nooowwww lets talk about the bands, blah blah blah... lets listen to them play... They were all great! Guess I'm a bit biased! ;)
    I would have liked more breeds in the parade, seemed mostly QH's (which I LOVE), the fresian group was cool. I want a 1,000% horse, televised parade!
