Rider tries to complete course, but her headstrong horse has a different idea

When this horseback-riding routine begins, all seems to be going according to plan. However, it's not long before this obstinate horse throws off his rider and continues the rest of the competition alone, performing jump after solo jump without anyone in the saddle.
While this may seem strange, this phenomenon may not be so unusual after all. Horse Talk reports, "From a horse jumping enjoyment viewpoint, it is remarkable how many fallers and those who have unseated their riders continue. They often do so for several fences and even an entire circuit on occasion."
