Never saw it before. Thanks for sharing!

The rider came in with no impulsion to that first skinny, too much of a coffin canter for sure - but boy, did that horse make up for it - and the rider rode that whole thing solidly, without irons......good job!

That rider is so lucky!
Those types of falls where the horse hits the jump with his chest like that are what has been causing so many injuries in the eventing world.

What a saint that horse is!

At first I thought it was completely the rider telling the horse to keep right on jumping... and I was peeved. Then slow mo proved the rider didn't have the reins half of the time and was all over the place in the saddle. It was the horse who kept chugging along. Kudos to the both of them, and I hope that horse got some well deserved treats, rest and any necessary TLC.
