Why do horses die when they throw up?
Horses have a band of muscle around the esophagus as it enters the stomach. This band operates in horses much as in humans: as a one-way valve. Normally, USA Today concludes, if a horse does vomit, it is because its stomach has completely ruptured, which in turn means that the poor horse will soon be dead.

Will a horse step on a human?
If you are on foot in the middle of a frightened herd of horses, you will probably get knocked down, but every single horse will do its best not to step on you. You might get hit by a passing hoof however. This isn’t altruism; they just avoid stepping on squishy stuff to avoid falling or injuring their legs.
