Swedish Rider Angelica Augustsson endured a scary moment today, Sept. 28, in the Furusiyya Nations Cup Consolation Final. Early in the course, her Mic Mac du Tillard stood up on the way to a vertical and refused to go forward. She kept rearing for a full minute or so, well after the pair was rung out. Augustsson took her time, finessing her through to get her calm.
They walked out of the ring in one piece.
