even scarier- go to the eti nationals in burbank- every year i take the little ones to get miles- its the scariest place i have ever ever been. this year a girl got bucked off and kicked in the teeth about 20 feet from me- no helmet- western rider- had to be taken out on the stetcher.
not to mention the general freaky-ness of the jumper ring that goes down. no scratch that- of any over fence class, or rail class. in fact just walking on your two feet is hazardous.
