New Mexico State's Horse Knocks Over Girl During Pregame Ceremonies

One unlucky New Mexico State student was knocked over by a horse during Thursday's pregame ceremonies for the Aggies' season opener against Cal Poly.

NMSU has a horse named Keystone that runs around the field before home games. While turning the corner, Keystone hit Zaina Atyani, a student who works for NMSU's athletics marketing department, and knocked her to the ground. Though the collision looked rough, Atyani was apparently fine, and took it all in stride on Twitter.


Zaina's a champ.
