I work on a farm in Rhinebeck and i talked to vet's from Rhinebeck Equine about what happened and they said that the stallion he was working on bumped him and he fell over and hit his head on the ground.

I would like to know if anyone has information that disputes this fact. What is the source that reported that he was kicked by the horse?

Dr. Steiner was attempting to collect and hold the stallion, the horse bumped into him and he fell back onto the concrete and had massive brain damage because of the force at which he fell.
