    Flip a coin. It's not what side lands that matters, but what side you were hoping for when the coin was still in the air.

    I have seen them before and just knew it had to be that same series... I can't believe the rider continued as if nothing had happened.

    I can't believe they let him put the helmet back on and continue! Seems like that should be pretty clear grounds for elimination (also dumb!)

    Wow! I also can't believe they let him continue.
    I was at a jumper show last week and watched a rider come off her horse, and her helmet come off her head. Seems to defeat the purpose of a helmet a bit.
