News Flash!!! – “Big Lick” Tennesssee Walking Horse Throws His Rider In The Show Ring At “Big Lick” North Carolina Championship Horse Show at Western NC Agricultural Center In Asheville, North Carolina

ASHEVILLE, NC –  This “Big Lick” Tennessee Walking horse was being exhibited in the Friday night Amateur Specialty Gelding Class, and had just finished going the first way of the show ring (clockwise), and turned around to go the reverse direction (counter-clockwise) when the incident occurred.

In this 3x slo-mo video,  the horse appears to be “throwing” its front legs, and then wavers behind on its back legs,  then rears,  and then collapses to the ground, and the rider was thrown from the horse in the process.
