I only made part way through the video before I had to stop it. My heart was beating to fast.

As a competitive driver an accident like that is my biggest fear. I think about wrecks every time I enter the arena. When I was a teenager I saw a wreck very similar to that. One horse took off and people tried to get in front of it forcing it into the center of the arena causing tons of damage to everyone. I was the scarriest thing I had ever seen in my life. It only takes one bad horse or stupid owner to put everyone in danger.

Someone stole my %&#*@&% Carrot!

that sucks, the second the stop one horse another one gets going. I don't understand why they didn't get all of the horses off their carts? well I don't drive so maybe it would have been too much of an effort?? scary though.... very scary.

Ya I saw alot of things that could've been prevented. Although when in panic alot of things are forgotten. My coach always preaches about how important it is for a horse to know the word woe! This just makes it show how important that is. I'm not sure who left in the ambulance..
It looks pretty scary and people should train there horse's to know what to do incase that did ever happen to them. Thats why I think lunging a horse is so important too.
As for other horse's and people getting ran over! umm.. that horse was obviously scared to death and when there in that state you pretty much can't stop them from running no matter what.
I hope people learn to take better measures when they are driving or riding, or even leading a horse. They should spooke proof them as much as possible!
I had to watch it twice, it was so crazy! I'm glade that everyone ended up ok.

After reading through the comments, it seems that BOTH horses that got loose are owned by the same person (who posted the video on youtube). They also seems to have very little sympathy towards everyone else who was in the ring and completely obvilious to the danger they caused.
When you take a horse anywhere you are responsible for preparing it for anything it may encounter and are responsible for how it behaves. IMO those horses had no business being in the show ring.

Some people make me sick!
