rotational fall at Bramham CCI***
A scary photo from a scary paper (the Daily Mail)
"For my next trick, a perfect head over hooves: Picture of terrifying fall of rider and horse at international show"
The horse is ok; the rider has neck and back injuries and the article says it's too early to say if she'll make a full recovery.
Let's hope she does.
The comments attached to this article are predominantly negative. And while we might object to making these sensational photos the public face of our sport, the sad truth is that these falls are horrifying and highly lethal.
