    I don't know that I'd class it as a failure, but good sense:

    Virgina Leng (Gawd, I believe it was her and not Lucinda Green nee Prior Palmer, memory's a bit rusty), had the original ride on the great, but difficult, event horse, Murphy Himself. After he gave her a crashing fall at either Badminton or Burghley, she traded him to, I believe, Ian Stark, admitting that for all her experience and ability, he was much too much horse for her. If you search, you probably can find film of the fall she had with Murphy Himself, and Ian Stark did have success with the horse.

    It was Ginny Leng but I wouldn't call her time with him a failure, she did win Burghley on him before the trade, which is a huge win for anyone. Ian had great succes on Murphy too though.
