As you all know, I am relatively new to the sport, learning every day. However, even with my limited group of reining friends and trainers....I now know 2 people personally who have had their horses somersault on them. Both very experienced riders (one is a trainer and judge) on horses that were young, but not total greenies. Both recovered, but were real sore and bruised for a few weeks.
How often does this happen? Anyone else hear of this? I am not really understanding how this happens. I must be when stopping, I would guess?
