    Haven't seen this one posted yet. BZ to the driver for preventing a greater wreck.

    Ton of adrenaline pumping through his veins, I'm sure. Looks as though no one was injured, very glad about that!

    That was a great show of horsemanship in a very difficult situation! Thanks for posting!

    Clever, quick, tough driver. My hat would be off to him, but I think I'll keep my helmet on.
    Some riders change their horse, they change their saddle, they change their teacher; they never change themselves.

    The driver on the other hand had sore arms for two week!

    (and so much for the notion that sitting on the neck can keep a horse down...)

    He was aware the horse's right hind was iffy and was gonna make darn sure it didn't get banged up any more. That's love in action.

    tangled up, yup.

    a lot to take in when all you see is flailing hooves and grass zooming by!

    Gutsy guy. Probably saved some other folks serious injury. I expect it would have been a hell of a wreck if he'd lost hold of the horse, and the horse bolted to catch up with the rest.
