    I think the guy tried to fall off, but the horse scrambled too much, staying under him.





    Impressive!

    Got to love a horse that tries to keep a rider on! I've got one now, I don't think he would let me come off if I tried.

    Looks like the rider pulled back so hard on the reins that the horse lost his balance.

    I loved the bit with his hat!!! Not every horse rider combo falls over a calf, and keeps going.
    Some riders change their horse, they change their saddle, they change their teacher; they never change themselves.

    Looks like the horse tripped over a calf that fell in front of him to me.....

    Skill and luck, and he didn't even drop his hat! :-)

    The last time that happened to me the horse and I both went down. Fantastic save on both horse and rider's parts.
