This falls into the don’t try this at home category. I’m sure you have a lot of things of your own that come under this header!
I am often faced with disbelief (after relating a horse accident to the non-horsey) when I say “the horse tried not to hurt me.” This video embodies that concept. The horse is trying to accommodate the situation…and succeeds, much to the jockey’s relief, quite possibly saving his life.
I don’t agree with the title, it’s not hilarious.
It does show you what heart a horse can have, and the dangers of flat racing. Quick thinking on the part of the jockey!
Jockey and ride are listed as Nate Hubbard, 1989
