Normally, we wouldn’t post a video of riders falling off their horses on HJU – we like to focus on the positive side of the sport… but I was literally sitting at my desk laughing hysterically while watching this . . . My co-workers think I might be clinically insane . . . they might be right . . . But it’s probably just because I’ve experienced a few very similar “involuntary dismounts” in my day! 🙂

This video comes from horse shows held at the Weston Lawns Equestrian Centre in the UK. No horses or riders were seriously hurt.

(If you think this is in poor taste, our apologies.)
