A friend of mine said that when you go to ride a sale horse, always insist that the owner or a trainer ride the horse before you get on. Here is what can happen when you don't...
What do you think?
oh my god. my heart was in my mouth watching this. I can't believe that someone would be so stupid as to misrepresent the horse!
Why God invented the "pulley rein" stop. My OTTB is not a runaway, but I used it once when he panicked at a potbelly pig that emerged from a doghouse while we were riding down the trail and we were near barbed wire.In the video, it didn't help that the rider lost her irons (well, at least the left one) either. I agree with the comment at the end. And yes, let someone else ride the horse first.
