    It's very easy to cast blame but let it be a lesson in how powerful the flee instinct is for horses in a herd situation. It is, after all, what gave us the racing industry.

    Ditto. And the more you get, the stronger the instinct is. I honestely cannot Phathom the logic behind 100 horses and young riders, and only 6 responsible riders....actually the 6 riders doesnt really matter - its the 100 horses with kids on them bother me....

    im suprised nobody thought that might be a bad idea in the first place

    i dont think even if most of them knew the one rein stop it might not have help if 100 horses took off.

    glad i wasnt on that ride thats for sure
