There is no way that this guy would be conscious and be able to run off if he had been kicked directly in the face, having said that it looks like he must been nicked as his hat came off.

he may have had to change his pants too!!! This one came on next after I watched that:

yep, that's going to leave a mark. we flew a kid a few months ago that was kicked directly in the chest. Similar kick as the kid we just saw.

the harness horse is definately not the faint at heart.

Crazy eh?! I have heard of some bad stories but this horse can buck. Didn't realise horses that are attached to the cart can buck this hard and strike the drivers like that :?

I saw this on Animal Planet the other night. That was a three year old Gelderlander gelding named Jet. They were trying him out with an older gelding at that time.

What that video didn't show was the horse working fine a few minutes before. They walk and trot both ways, then stop right there. When they ask them to move on, something spooks the colt and he starts bucking. The driver said he was completly taken by surprise because the horse didn't show any tell tale signs of distress or that he was about to spook.

He actually kicked the driver in the temple and chin on the first kick and then in the chest before the driver jumped off. The next door neighbor, who was also a nurse said there was a perfect hoofprint on his chest. The driver was recounting the tale. He was truly surprised to be alive.

After that the horses were loose, with the youngster still bucking, the older horse just walks them into the fence.

That's insane. Thank you for sharing the outcome of this. I tried to look it up online but never found anything. Thanks again.
