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!
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.
