Oh wait, you can't.
One definition of rotational fall.
"a fall where the horse hits a fence with its front legs or chest and its body somersaults over the fence with the fence acting as a pivot point. In a rotational fall, the rider usually is thrown out of the saddle and goes over the jump before the horse. In a worst case scenario, the horse can land on the rider."
If the jump gives way it can't be a pivot point.
This type of post is just one more example of eventings totally defensive attitude towards horse and rider seriious injuries.
If you personally think it's 'OK' then heaven help you when PETA and HSUS go after you. LMAO
Too much denial that there is a problem.
I notice that FEI's latest position is that the rider is to blame.
Maybe so but a bad ride in H/J just means no ribbon, not a death or crippling injury.
This quote from the FEI is clearly defensive and disturbing in several levels
"The FEI Eventing risk management needs also to take into account the risks for the FEI deriving from an unmanaged communication of any accident that will inevitably produce a bad image for the organization and the sport if not put in the right context of a proactive risk management policy.
Public perception of proactive risk management is as important as the risk management actions performed and an effective risk management communication plan is key for achieving the mission of the organization.
In order to ensure the above:
A communication strategy for FEI Eventing risk management must be urgently developed. All risk management actions must be made public and actively explained .
A clear procedure has been established in case of any serious accident to allow correct distribution of information."
That's pretty clear. Hush, don't let on there has been an accident.
