    Crash Bang

    Driving problems

    Two sharp turns
    Four stunning horses, no brakes

    I like how these horses stopped.
    I'll call it two horses in a bog by a log.

    There go them fancy riggins!

    One way ticket out of there

    OUCH!

    Having survived more than my share of driving catastrophies, I can safely laugh at many of these. Though it's pretty easy to see most of them coming LOL. I still feel sorry for the poor horses though. The people....not so much.

    I can remember when I was about 4 or 5, my Dad and I were on a wagon having a runaway down a back road. I pointed to the right hand mare and asked my Dad "What would happen if that horse fell down?" He just looked at me and said "Oh, sweetie, we don't want that to happen."

    That being said, our teams were always really well broke before we ever thought about taking them out among people.

    Im sorry but BAHAHAHA this sounds like something I would say lol

    I feel bad for the horses more so than the people...the people may have fallen off but most of those horses got caught up and tripped.

    It drives me nuts that 90% of the time I see driving horses, they barely seem to be under control. Maybe I'm missing something, I'm not a driver, but for how chill Drafts are known to be, it's surprising that they're always blowing a gasket when hitched up. Every time I see a class around here, it's like they just pulled them all in from pasture and hooked 'em up for the first time in 10 years!

    I love love LOVE the video where the horses stop dead. Definitely some decent training there!

    Draft horses are pretty sensitive to the environment around them. Eg: Roothie is super laid back and gentle, but every time we take her to the Christmas parade she gets really excitable with all of the activity around her.

    Also, alot of people who drive horses, have a tendancy to use blunt force to get a point across. And sometimes the horses just get tired of it.

    I like the one where the guy gets catapulted, lol! Poor guy.

    The way the one mule was acting.. I would have never hooked him up in the first place. It was obvious that wasn't going to turn out well... looked like he wasn't even broke to a cart.
    I've seen the one where the guy gets launched... NOT a funny thing, but it's hilarious how dramatic Spike made the whole scene.

    When I used to work at a Saddlebred stable the trainer would often times run out of time so would ask me to work several of his horses in the cart. Terrified me every time we had to go around a turn. Saddlebred arenas are long and narrow so trying to make that turn wasn't easy. And many of the horses had no mouth left so would try to have them slow down but they had no response to it. I'm surprised I never had an accident. But many of these accidents I could see coming which is sad that the drivers never took notice to try and prevent them from happening.

    Having been raised around racing standardbreds I have seen a few accidents myself. While racing, it is a rule that there is a person that rides another horse. This person is always on the track and ready to catch any runaway/driverless horses. It is pretty hard for a person on the ground to catch a horse and buggy, so after watching many videos like these I have always wondered why something along similar lines is not practiced at other driving sports.
