A lot of things can go wrong when your horse slips the bridle mid course. You could fall off, as most often is the case. You could keep jumping, like Belgium show jumper Gregory Wathelet did last year in Paris. Or in rare, and exceptionally tenacious, instances, you can struggle back into the tack, wrangle your mount with nothing but a rein around his neck and find a way to put the bridle back on, from the saddle, so you can complete the course.

Trillium pony rider extraordinaire Alyssa Schiller falls into that last category. It may have taken an eternity in ring time (ie, some three odd minutes), but she got the job done. Like a boss.


Chances are Charlie Brown will think twice before he stops with Schiller in the tack again.
