I became aware of the EMM a few years ago and I must say, I love it. I followed one of the mustangs progress (belatedly!) from 2007 I think it was, on Youtube. The horse was Ranger, the trainer... Kitty someone I think. I believe they ended up coming second.
I do agree that some of the things they are asked to do are ridiculous, but it's all to show just how calm and tolerant the horses are, so it makes complete sense to me. It's a great way to get the breed 'out there', and I really wish that Australia had something similar.
As for the accident, I hadn't heard! But it's great news that all is well :)
