Poor horse... tears my heart up to see it struggling to stand back up because of that tie down. What a wonderful horse for such a small child to have to ride. It entered the arena at such a tame, managable pace for a rider that size.

Never saw this video before, i thought it was going to be the one where the barrel horse flips over (its been on TV before as well) Good find!

It was horrible... but seing how many people were there so quickly to get things under control was heartening.

Not a good scene. Did anyone else notice that she got stuck in the saddle because she had her foot way far forward in the stirrup? -- at least her left one was anyway. And she was losing it before the horse did I think. Also, a great demo of why NOT to use a tie down.

Poor team. I hope they both faired out OK. The horse looks OK, but the girl got a bit of a banging around.

Excellent care given by the parents tho. They all did an excellent job prioritizing grabbing the horse then the kid. Good for them.
