Think about what you get though if your horse wins.

-I'm so busy... I don't know if I found a rope or lost my horse.
-An Armed Man is a Citizen an unarmed man is a subject.
-Where ever free speech is stifled Tyranny will reign.

After pointing that out now I see the head bobbing

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.

I have to say, that was my first thought. I found myself screaming at my computer..."GET OFF!" That was more than just a little stumble, and the first step or 2 the horse was obviously off. I would have been off his back before you could blink!

I see really slight head bob is I really concentrate on it.....but sure not much, and probably not something I personally might not pick up on. Very subtle to me.

Signature undergoing edits. Please standby.......

OUCH! I cringed as I watched that. I saw a head bob too, but it could be just the way the camera was. You would think that at that level of competition if the horse was "head bobbing lame" they would pull it ASAP.

The start of the spin looked like it was going to be the start of a poor run.

I would have jumped off the second my horse stopped and checked him over before I even led him out of the ring! Why would you ride your horse out after something like that happened?

The horse seemed to have been ignoring his leg right off from before the spin...if you look, you can see him cueing the horse, but the horse just turned his head! I noticed the head bob, too, but the stupid camera man doesn't keep it on the horse long enough to really tell if it was an inconsistency or if it continued...to me it also looked like it was the right front, as well, not the hind...could be wrong, but again, it's not shown nearly long enough.
