    I was wondering if he was still jumping. Any idea what he's doing now?

    I did not look. No need to scare myself.

    If it's the same horse that was being discussed on another board [ages ago] then he was sold on several times due to his "habit" of leaving a leg at fences ...

    Perhaps landing in water was a good thing? Less of an impact?

    Retired now I think but I am pretty sure he was at Young Rider's the year my son went (2008).

    That's why George Morris says horses that point their knees down are dangerous...

    Not that I am aware of. The water is shallow, around 18” inches deep, and there are officials and others around the water jump. If someone was knocked out and in the water at the same time, they would be attended to quickly.

    Having had a rotational fall off of a 4'9" showjumping fence (the kind that are supposed to fall apart and not cause issues!), I have to say the pic didn't scare me as much as I thought it would.

    Not that I'm signing up to do it ever again!

    Horse I did it on with me in warmup prior to the incident, which was not caught on camera, over a low fence: http://images.yuku.com/image/jpg/e61...4cf1f945_r.jpg

    We weren't seriously injured. The horse did knock himself out on the other side of the fence. I thought I'd killed him and tried to stand up to go to him (wind was knocked out of me). I remember my French coach running out and grabbing him by the bridle and punching him. The horse jumped to his feet and seemed fine afterward. I'd never ridden him before or after that day.

    I eventually stopped showjumping because of the fall, it shook me so badly. I even quit riding for about 6-8 months (which is a long time!).

    12 years later, I've started getting back into jumping again. Here I am, first time ever on a cross country course: https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-R...20/Gibbes8.jpg

    Every time you canter up to a fence, the feeling of flipping over the top bar comes back to you. Every time. I still get so panicked jumping I don't remember the last stride, the jump or the stride after at the end of a course.

    But hey, we got a 32 on a BN CT recently! Pic: http://sphotos-b.xx.fbcdn.net/hphoto...62674432_n.jpg

    Anyone else have a bad rotational fall? I've obviously let it affect me and end my jumping career for more than a decade.

    I had a rotational fall – when I was 13, horse caught its knee on the face side of a cross country jump and we went a$$ over teakettle.

    Horse was fine – jumped right up – I thought I was fine, jumped right up as well – discovered my chin was bloody, and that my front teeth were knocked loose.

    Shortly after that it became apparent I had suffered a major TBI – rushed to the hospital, induced into a coma for three days..... And fully recovered!

    I can’t say it affected me long term. I was riding again as soon as the Drs allowed it – and back to jumping, and eventing to prelim.

    It never caused any fear of jumping for me. Maybe it was because I was young, or felt it was a freak accident (horse tripped on takeoff).

    I like the "Please contact me if you want to purchase this photo."

    Um, not so much.
