Omg! Was that on actual roads? That was insane! And the horses slipping and the ridders getting dragged...

They must be very boring, when think this out
In the end most of horses run without any rider at all..
And how many people ! What they see there ?

Wow, they fall so gracefully. They just slide along their backs until they can get up. They almost look like they've been trained to fall properly. I think the rider's must get hurt more than the horses.

I actually laughed when I saw the first horse running without a rider.

I've actually been there..(to Siena, not to the race) the race is held in the middle of the city in a square, its not really even that big... they put dirt down over the cobblestones for the race.

That looks hilarious.

This was in my Horse Illustrated magazine. It's called the Palio horse race. Horse deaths have become common. Stuff like this makes me sick. There's also one called the Omak Suicide Race. It's held over 4 days. The horses have to run down Suicide Hill, which is a 225-foot drop at a 62-degree angle. Then they have to swim in the deep and swift Okanogan River. I'll put a video up as soon as I can find one.

Hmm...I don't know much about this race, but yeah, it IS run on a pretty good surface - the main issue in the accidents are the tight turns, which honestly they COULD make better if they tried - it's only the way they've arranged the crowd which causes the corners. You've got to admit that at last all the horses get up and carry on running, I suppose...And the riders can't get dragged because there's no saddle to get dragged by! If nothing else I'm at least impressed that they do it bareback.

The Omak suicide race is ridiculous, cruel, insanity. I can't believe they've even got the nerve to claim it as 'heritage'.
