    This is from 2009 and it's been posted here a number of times. Always interesting, though.

    It's worth noting that air jacket purveyor PointTwo used one of the photos of Ms. Cook on this US website and claimed she and her horse were 'uninjured.' Yeah, right -- except for those fractured vertebrae.

    (Ms. Cook was hospitalized after her fall so it's not like she went home and then found out she was hurt. PointTwo did change their website after this was pointed out on this BB. )

    Also, this is not the first horse fall in competition for Faith Cook and Nagor de la Roche. Since 2005, they have had FOUR falls of horse, the most recent one in July 2010.

    That last detail amazes me. Please tell me it's a record. I'd hate to think there are combos out there who've spent more time on the ground.

    oops, it was posted on another forum and I thought it was recent.

    Second photo is spectacular.
