OUCH

This is the worst of both worlds not only do you land on your head after being thrown from a horse, but his hooves are on a direct course for you body.  Hope the Emergency Room’s not busy

He Should Be Breaking Your Fall

You know whats worse than falling of a horse, a horse falling on top of you.  Well at least the guy in the background has some good photo’s for the funeral.

Is It Over Yet

Falling off a horse is bad, really bad but when your foot gets caught you better start praying because your going to be pulled around like dog on a leash.  Just close your eyes and imagine your on a beach.

Levitation

I’m not sure how this happened it almost looks like the man was trying to jump on the horse but I’m sure that’s not the case.  At least he’s on top unlike the other guy.

Aerial Acrobatics not Recommended

Maybe this horse is trying the impossible 360 and couldn’t quite get around but no matter what its going to hurt either for the horse or they guy riding him.  My guess is the horse.

Way to Use Your Head

I’m sure when your flying off a horse you see  life flashes before your eyes but the only thing this guy going to see is the ground get closer and closer.  Either that or he’s found a terrible spot to practice his handstands.

Rough Landing

Flying through the sky is quite a feeling its such a rush.  I’m sure this guy’s thoughts are changing from I’m flying, too crap this is is going to be a rough landing.  I hope the Chiropractors on speed dial.

Hooved

This is not pretty at all.  Being stomped is just about the worst thing that can happen after being thrown of a horse.  At least theirs someone there to call for help because your going to need it BAD.

    Great pictures. The bad point about it is those closest to such accidents can only think of getting a rare shot instead of extending a hand in help.

    Images were better than I expected given the title. I used to attend rodeos but in a fannish capacity. Never to ride, though some of my friends rode the Brahma bulls, the broncos, etc. Nu’uh, -not me!
