    At least for one more fence... then he makes a beeline for the out gate!

    Needs to learn to read the numbers, so he can find the rest of the course when the rider is missing.

    Similar thing once happened to me - many years ago. I got bounced off over the first fence of a coffin. Horse kept going, circled round back to me. I climbed back on and re-did the jump. When the scores came out, I had no stop, just a fall???? TD said they had all talked about it, but horse never stopped - I just fell off. He also said that they did discuss what they would have done if I hadn't re-taken the fence, since they had already decided that the horse hadn't stopped!!!
