My Morab mare came to this little creek, stopped and wouldn't go.  My dad
got off to walk her across.  She kept looking then decided to jump it!  She
gathered herelf together, back feet to front.  Kept gathering herself
together (guess he was working up the umph and the nerve).  Then she just
became overbalanced and did a beautiful nose dive right into the creek!  I
felt so sorry for her.  That was many years ago circa 1956!  I can still
remember it and get a laugh.  Though I also was worried about injury.  She
seemd fine and we vetted her when she got home.  No problems.

That's one of the most dangerous times, when you are trying to lead
your horse across  an obstacle that they are frightened of.  When they
finally jump it they often overdo it, and then land right on you.
