The horse that hit Jim Oury (to Anna & Joe)

::so dont be so quick to judge the horse. Some times it is unavoidable.
Of course I'm judging the horse (and many others have been jugding
the rider). And I don't think I've been quick about it, this discussion's
been going on for weeks.
Of course I am, just like everyone
else that wasn't there.
And whether or not we agree on whether horses can "turn on a dime"
at high speeds, you spent the majority of you discription of your
collision talking about how your horse tried NOT to step on you.
Which means the horse had his/her wits still intact.
My point is this:
When a herd animal (human) rides a herd animal (horse) and they're
running blind, neither animal is in control. Running blind is an expression
meaning they (horse & rider) do not see what's in front of them
because of their state of mind (like a run-away, or stampede).
And yes. We all know how fast situations can change and Sh*% can happens.
So, from the discriptions of the accident that I have read on RideCamp,
I still think this horse wasn't "just racing" into
the finish.. he/she was running blind.
