p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Bad Crash at the Devon Horse Show


I photographed this fall this weekend at the Devon Horse Show. I practically LIVE there every year, and usually catch 5-6 falls on camera. This was easily the WORST I have ever seen.

Amazingly, both horse and rider are doing okay. The horse tripped coming up to the fence, flipped over, landing on the rider and then proceeded to roll on top of her. She was knocked out cold for at least two minutes. Injuries were minor.

Amazingly she is back on her feet and released from the hospital with just a concussion. No riding for a few weeks though. Impressively, the Devon Horse Show modified it's rules to allow riders to now wear safety vests if they choose after this happened on Sunday.

Golly, glad they are both okay, looked pretty bad for her there with the horse trying to get back on his feet, hooves frighteningly close to striking her.

Phew, OK now that I know that everybody is going to be OK, I can enjoy them much more ;-) Yeah, those reactions in the crowd, especially that poor lady in the back with the white shirt and the grey cap.

Great sequence catch.

What is most interesting to me is how the men in the back simply look for a better view, and the women nearly all put their hands to their faces and gasp.
Kind of an interesting social study!

Were you moving or stationary when you captured this? Because it looks like the angle of the background is changing, or is that just the crop?

Great captures, regardless!!!!

Well captured and glad the young lady is recovering well. This happened to me once when I was still show jumping (20 years ago), except I was lucky and my horse flew over me. I did get some nasty splinters from the poles landing on me though

Wow, that is really amazing. Glad she is okay.

Not only does the action tell a story, so do the changing expressions on the spectators' faces (I wonder why people tend to cover their mouths in a situation like this?)

Glad both are doing ok. It looks like the horse was very careful and took great care of the rider when standing up.
