    No the horse wasn't put down. The owner said it was fine.

    I know a guy who tried driving once and said it's more scary than riding. If the horse decides not to listen to the bit you're up the creek!

    It looked like the horses were spooked at first, but after awhile the 2 horses diddn't look scared at all, just teasing everyone and perhaps enjoying themselfs..?

    Hope everyone was ok. That's scary. Did they trip the horse at the end , how'd the cart come loose? It looks like they threw out a rope or something and the cart came off.

    They tried to rope the horse and the cart broke free and so did the rope. The horse tripped on it's harness.

    The horses were all fine.

    The horse that spooked was a seasoned champion and they still have no idea what caused him to panic like that - they figure he was somehow stung, or his tail had gotten hung up in the tracing and he couldn't get it loose. I believe they have retired him since this happened.

    It's easy to say "do this, do that". When a horse is that erratic and you have no idea where he's going, opening the gates is the WORST thing you can do. You can try and believe it would be easy to evacuate, but the pattern of the bolt was all over the place and staying in the center WAS the best solution. Most horses don't bolt into the center of a large group but with blinders on, it's understandable how it can happen.

    I absolutely ADORE the announcer in this video - she is a picture perfect image of cool as a cucumber and being able to effectively manage things without even being in the ring.

    And as to why the cart broke loose, I believe(don't quote me on this) that they are built with emergency break away mechanisms to reduce damage in such cases as this.
