The horse should have never jumped out. I bet the old fella
was disappointed when that happened. Too much pressure from
within caused it. Maybe a bigger pen would have helped the pressure situation. I'm glad everything worked out. I saw Buck Brannaman
cause a horse to jump over the fence too, so I guess it does happen
sometimes, but it's sure not what the whisperer's want.

Probably it was a case of too many onlookers. Five-foot tall panels are just not adequate for messing with horses.
