Title: Driving class (horses) cluster screw-up.
Post by: 230RN on September 13, 2019, 07:20:05 AM
Relevant to another post, I got to poking around on horse videos.  This one reminded me of one of Benny Hill's chase scenes with the Yakety Sax theme going in the background.

Too bad about the horse being injured at the end, though.

1000+ lb animals can be dangerous and difficult to stop. Probably why Cavalry charges worked so well.

Also jumping off a horse that seems out of control is not really the best first option and the broken ribs from doing so tend to hurt for months. Try to ride it out...

From the video, jumping out of that cart was a MUCH better choice than trying to ride it out. Did you see what happened to the carts on the out of control horses?

I wasnĺt talking about the carts, I was talking about riding.

The problem with the carts is it looked like the first cart broke or at least part of the harness did and I think the lady then bounced out. They failed to clear the rest of the carts and contain the runaway horse and things just got worse and worse. This is why for many events only one horse is even allowed in the ring at the same time.

Okay, just a short ways into the video:  Why are people trying to grab those reins or get in front of the horse when it is moving that fast?

My guess is to try and stop it, it looked like many of them werenĺt particularly experienced, but hard to tell from small video and no sound. You can often stop a horse by getting in its way and waving your arms, but you can also get run over as happened to several people there. It looked like at one point a guy was able to grab the harness and stop the one horse and then another got spooked.

Iĺve had horses almost come over or through a 5 foot gate when I was working Western Gymkhanas. That was with a rider on it. You did not open that gate though until the rider had the horse stopped and under controlor you might have another 20 or 30 or more horses going wild in the holding pen. Pretty much even if it meant taking a 1000lb horse in the face. Same reason most classes didnĺt allow more than one or two horses in the ring.

Worse things can happen than being behind a runaway horse . . .
