‘Oh Crap’ Moment of the Day: Victory gallop gone wrong

HN reader Alda, from Portugal, sent us this video of her daughter sitting tight through her horse’s exuberant celebration.

Alda writes, “I send here the link of a video with my daughter Sofia (13 years old) and her horse Visconde Sant’Ana (10 years old). They are a jump team and they are best friends but when the show goes well and the music starts…Visconde loves to be the centre of attention…”

Here it is:

[Alda Santiago]

Well played, Sofia! You just sat back, stayed calm, kept your eyes up and your heels down, and rode it out like a pro. You are a gifted young rider–please stay in touch because we see bright things in your future!


Go Sofia, and Go Riding!
