It's rough on the horses though. Unless they are panicked, horses are very careful to avoid treading on people sitting in the ground, which is one reason why sitting down is the best thing to do in a crowd under pressure.

Back in Vietnam protest days there was talk about people with catapults and ball bearings in face of horses, and if it ever happneed it was a damn silly idea for that very reason. Also of course, if you want to alienate public opinion in England the best way is to hurt animals.
