How much do you actually know about Chuckwagon racing and the horses who participate in it? Do you realize that these horses have a better life than a lot of people? These horses are athletes, and love running. While their are accidents, that is all they are, accidents, these animals are not fighting eachother. When these accidents happen everyone involve morns the loss of these animals. Just like every other sport in this era they are pushing the limits and are trying to find ways to make it safer for both horses and riders.
