WARNING*might be shocking.

I gasped out loud when I saw this. Driving a horse, gone VERY bad.

Well as posted in the text of the video, I think the guy was kicked in the face/head but only would have been nicked. Assume this because the hat did come off as the hoof got close.

There is no way that this guy would have gotten kicked in the head directly because he would have no been walking away from it.

The kickee posts several times in the comments; apparently the horse was a 3 y.o. Imported from the Netherlands and had some basic driving training. This was the first time they tried to drive him with another horse, possibly the carriage bumped his hocks and set him off. Scary stuff.

I don't now about you guys but it's given me a whole new view on driving. What seemed to be a safer sport than most has showed me differently. I can't imagine what would have happened to the fellow who was hit, had it been a draft who did the same thing

I used to think so too before I got in to a breed that is actually used heavily for driving. Since then I've heard about several incidents of severe injury and even two deaths (one from a flipped carriage, and another where a man was thrown from his sjees and landed on a post in the field...not pretty). A runner I met at a keuring 4 years ago was run over when a young stallion he was working with spooked. He still works with horses, but he was over a year recovering and has to walk with a stick. Needless to say, I have a healthy respect for the dangers now, though I would still like to learn!
