Has this ever happened to anyone? When I worked at Dixie we had a horrible accident while they were training. A guy was roman riding a stubborn team to try to get them over the hoop. I guess they were setting up to jump and King shied to the left while Elvis jumped the hoop. When he did the rider tried to pull back to stop him and I guess Elvis bit down, snapped the bit and almost cut his tongue completely off. He had to have it stitched back together. =/ It was just a big mess. Has anyone ever heard of this? If I remember correctly, they used an eggbutt snaffle bit on all the horses.
