‘Oh Crap’ Monday: Falling (in Love)

This certainly is one way to fall in love … 

Monday already is the crappiest day of the week, so it only makes sense that we make things official. Here’s our latest “oh crap” moment.

Thank goodness for good horses, grit and true love. Stunt rider Ben Atkinson was putting on a performance at the Great Yorkshire Show, during which he fell twice in the span of 20 seconds. We bet he was thinking, “Oh crap.” Fortunately, his horse Sablo is well trained with a good brain, and stuck with Ben the entire time.

To be fair to Ben, he might have had his mind on other things, since he ended his performance with a very public proposal to his assistant and then-girlfriend (now fiancée) Georgie Jackson.

Get the full scoop here.

Go forth and tackle your Monday, Horse Nation.
