    And my understanding is that they can make the decision about team vs individual riders either immediately before or after the first jog... So a spun horse won't eliminate the team. Can anyone...

    Well, please look it up. If you search my previous posts you will also see links to talks I have given which contain some of these references. It is not an issue of number of deaths per year. As I...

    Unfortunately, this is not true. In terms of fatal injuries per hours performing an activity, "horseback riding" in general has the highest rate of deaths of any sport or recreational activity in the...

    Very unlikely that the rider had a cardiac arrest in the midst of a rotational fall. Cardiac arrest is the final common pathway in all death, but likely not the full explanation here. Common fatal...

    Mr. M did not look obviously lame over the last few fences - maybe a little loose/tired. When he pulled up thru the finish flags he looked off to me, but the kind of off you can sometimes see at the...
