Re: Running Horses

One of our weanlings just mowed down my husband last week. The horses were 
running, but I wouldn't say they were crazed. They all turned but one. Who 
knows why. Probably just misjudged the distance.
I think it's fairly difficult for a horse to change direction at absolutely 
top speed, and just think of all there is to focus on visually. Quite a lot 
of input in a short time.
A well trained horse being ridden would also be waiting for rider guidance.
I don't think we'd better leave it up to the horses to handle these
