Not an idiot, sometimes it's worth a risk, but not in that situation. I saw a chap stop a runaway team by grabbing one of the leaders from the ground. I don't see what blinkers has to do with the equasion. A runaway horse blinkered or not will still be a runaway horse.
Sometimes all a runaway horse needs is some input, it might pay off, you might get flattened.
