    I think this is Clover Flush, and both survived although CF was injured and retired to stud.

    "He represented Australia and won the Norwood Gold Cup at the prestigious New Zealand Horse of the Year Show . He then went on to be reserve for the SYDNEY OLYMPICS in the year 2000. He retired to stud due to an injury when he heroically lept off the top of the Hickstead bank during the Derby."

    This is a better way to do it.

      Yup. I have a book - I think it's "The World of Show Jumping," showing Neal Shapiro (I think) and the supposedly ex-rodeo horse Uncle Max doing something similar off the Hickstead Bank. Not QUITE so extravagant, but it does look like he tried to jump from the top straight to the bottom.

          That photo is not Hickstead, and the horse is presumably not Clover Flush although he was a chestnut too.

          As others have said, the rider is Ben Maher and the photo is Hamburg in 2008.

            No, you are right, that is Alfredo, Clover Flush did his leap years before and not so successfully although he is still going strong as a sire. I understand Ben Maher has bigger problems now than horses leaping off banks.

              This is the one I was looking for last night, unsuccessfully I might add. Thanks!

                      No kidding. Surprising the original link still works! A whole lot of the followup ones don't...

                        That picture is making the rounds again on social media now.

                        I'm surprised the newbie poster was able to find this thread with the title being quite vague. But glad, anyway, because I never saw this thread or the picture before.

                        YIKES!

                            Mum said my sister was picked to go to an ODE further away.

                            The only other comment she made was that if my sister had known that there was an obstacle like this and he was going to jump from the top she wouldn't have attended.
                            It is better to ride 5 minutes a day than it is to ride 35 minutes on a Sunday.

                              I remember a book from kidhood featuring riders from Mexico. They trained cavalry and the banks were immense. I want to say the famous rider was Humberto Morales but I dont know. For a while they made a big splash on the world stage. Mid 50s I think
