    Arrow Jockey Head-butts Horse

    City Affair was being unruly in the parade ring, ultimately throwing O'Neill. The jockey got to his feet and grabbed the reins, pulling the horse to him, before lowering the butt of his helmet into it.

    "When I got to the start he headed straight for a car with me, stopped five feet from the car, whipped round and dropped me," O'Neill said. "I landed on my feet, but a bit awkwardly for my knee and I was a little bit angry then, but I've never done anything like this before and I'm glad to say the horse is OK after it."


    What a nasty person.....
    He couldn't control his horse so took it out on him........

    I am an absolute animal lover and at first I thought this story was actually amusing, but....as I read the article I realized there were other issues. He was 'given a caution by stewards for his use of the whip in the race' and something about his handling of a horse earlier in the year doing hurdles. Sounds like he might not be the best guy for this kind of job.

    More than likely this is not the first time he has mistreated this horse, he just got caught this time.

    Hate folks who are animal abusers, it hurts my heart.

    Hi Pharlap! How'd I know you'd be on this thread. lol

    I couldn't find the video. I probably looked too late.

    What's wrong with people? If they can't deal with animals without losing control then they should stay away from them!

    I changed the link, this one works......
    When you watch it, this jockey is a real bad rider.
    I've stayed on much worse bucks then that....

    I noticed his "apology" was more along the lines of being sorry that people had to see him head-butt the horse, not for actually doing it. Of course, that's just how I read it. He is indeed a sad little man. And like many of you pointed out, he has a history of not being able to control the horse he's riding. Perhaps that's natures way of telling him he stinks at his chosen profession!
