    I know nothing about this type of riding, but that is what I saw as well. Seemed like the horse was going to run into the other and was trying to avoid that. Glad both are going to be ok.

    When the people are running doubles if you have a fast horse running up the other horse that's waiting needs to get up to speed so they can "meet" for lack of better word and hand off the baton behind and between the barrels so it is very, very possible they may have gotten close. When we went to the back of the arena to help Bubba we tried to look for a reason the fall may have happened it there were a couple of really deep pockets and we're thinking she hit one.

    Thanks I know literally NOTHING about this sport so I did not even know that there is a baton. Do they drag the arena between a few horses going out, or are deep pockets common? Either way, it doesn't really matter, I am just glad that both the horse and rider will be ok, I was just asking out of interest.

    Ouch :S I'm glad they're both going to be ok, one of my friends fell off her horse yesterday and got a punctured lung and 3 broken ribs so she's in icu at the moment poor girl :S
    And I got thrown (yes thrown) off a horse about 2 weeks ago and somehow managed to come out scotch free.

    I think we all need to appreciate the job our helmets do a little more lol.

    I can't see the video because I'm on my iPod but it I very possible for a horse to go down because of a deep spot. I was riding Jesse (who is a 16.2hh 1600lb warmblood paint cross, I'm 5'3 and 125lbs) and as I was cantering, he stepped in a deep spot in the arena and almost went down. Luckily, he saved both of us but just barely. So just saying, it is a huge possibility.
