Got to go to the world equestrian games this weekend thanks to a christmas present.. My husband ended up taking video of each jump on the course on his iphone while I was busy cheering and snapping reg. Pics.
So here are all of the XC jumps on course.
It was Amazing!!!
Great video. That sure was a long walk, wasn't it? I haven't had time to look at the videos I shot. I know I got a few good sticky rides at fence 5 coming through the water and one horse that bolted near the Cigar fence. The rider eventually had to retire. Someday I'll get it all downloaded and posted. So glad we got good weather.
Puck, that's awesome you were there too. I managed to get a rider flipping out of the saddle over part of 7, and a couple of other run-outs. I'm just glad there were no huge accidents. Except for maybe the one at the very last jump wit the german rider. I guess horse and rider are ok, but it was a little scary.
Wren, fence 7 sure seemed to be the toughest out there. I sat there for about 10 riders and didn't see a single clean trip. That bank after the ditch seemed to get more slippery as the day went on. I'm glad nobody was really hurt either. The announcer said before the stadium phase said the horse that was hurt at the Lincoln cradle jump would most likely recover completely and the rider was resting comfortably, so it sounds good for both.
I am a tad video challenged, but I'm going to attempt to edit my stuff tonight and get it up for all to see.
Did you guys hear about the horse getting electrocuted?! Aprently it's stud hit a TV cable or something and it electrocuted him! He was aprently fine, but I think it was really careless... Posted via Mobile Device
