have you seen this? Horrible
 
Someone posted this on my facebook page and it just made me cry and also be incredibly angry

Old, old, old news.

No horses were injured and no people seriously hurt, although it looks pretty dramatic.

All of those horses and drivers went on to compete another day.

Horses can be dangerous, and are unpredictable regardless of their training.

Yes, very old news! But a good reminder of what can go wrong so quickly.

I think they decided the horse was stung by bees

I saw that awhile back.

I'm glad no one was injured, but it really is terrible how horribly they handled that. Where were the men on quarter horses in western saddles ready to herd up any wild horse? Horses are herd animals, and that really is the safest way to handle this situation.

Just goes to show how unpredictable life can be.

I am still stuck on the Op-why angry? I saw no mistreatment, etc. What was the issue that angered you?

JustDressageIt 06-08-2011 07:35 PM

I'm also curious as to why it drove you to tears, OP?

Epic Fail!

That was pretty nuts. But i am not sure why the anger and tears either.
And I'm not sure how they could have handled it but to stand in front of a scared horse going at full speed is just plain stupid, lol

I honestly don't see the big deal. They're horses and they're unpredictable.

Sure it is scary when stuff like that happens, but you have to prepare for things like this and for the most part it seemed to be dealt with fairly calmly and orderly.

As SR said, no one was seriously injured and this is very old.

it angers me because of the stupidity. the guy standing out in front of the horse like that's going to make it stop. the guy who grabbed the reigns of the horse as it sped by, did he really think that was going to work? the people in the stands screaming. It made me cry because i just thought those horses must be terrified in all of that, with all the commotion and chaos. I know we all can't say how we would or would not act in a situation but what i think could have avoided that whole thing is if the driver of the initial horse turned him straight into the wall. he was obviously trying to stop the horse at first by pulling on the reigns. when that didnt work, where did he go? did he fall out or did he bail?
