Wow - what a stunning moment of horsemanship!

 

One of the most extraordinary clear rounds of the Prix du Qatar at LGCT Paris 2014 came from Gregory Wathelet (BEL), whose mount Conrad de Hus managed to dislodge his bridle part way round the course. As the pair jumped the third to last fence, the bridle fell off mid-air, momentarily obscuring the horses view and leaving Gregory to hold up the bit in his horse's mouth for the final difficult line to maintain control, which he did to the delight of the crowd who cheered his incredible show of horsemanship.
