    Default Looking for a specific photo ...rotational fall into water?

    Hi! I'm looking for a photo that somebody posted on here maybe a year ago ...very neat photo of a rotational fall into water off a large jump, horse is completely vertical, rider's arms outstretched, but they haven't yet hit the water so you can see their reflection.
    It was mentioned that both horse and rider escaped w/o serious injury.
    Anyone have a link to this picture?

    Edited to add: Found it using Google Image search and the search term "Equine eventing rotational falls." Interesting results, but not for the faint of heart. Definitely don't look at this shortly before competing or going xc.

    I think that might have been me who posted that pic. Let me just go find it again....

    Here is the link to the pic itself:

    There was a 2nd pic in that series which showed the horse and rider walking away totally fine but couldn't find that pic online.

    And the link to the thread I started about it:

    Funny enough I was just thinking of this pic/thread the other day too.
