Boyd Martin made the save of the day at the Dutta Corp Fair Hill International yesterday after somehow managing to stay on Welcome Shadow when the mare scrambled over the duck at 24a in the last water complex on the CCI2* course, launching Boyd out of the saddle and bashing the leg he broke in March into the duck’s head.

Our friends at Practical Horseman posted a view from the other side of the duck. How on earth did he manage to stay on?

And then he pulled off a save again at the ducks with Crackerjack in the CCI3. Check out this photo sent in by EN reader Erin Huffer. Holy hind end!

Alec Thayer has a video of the whole sequence with Welcome Shadow that he’ll be sending us shortly. In the meantime, if anyone else caught a video of the save, we’d love to see it! Send it to [email protected].

Stay tuned for much more from Fair Hill.
