Ellen Doughty-Hume cruised around Rolex cross country yesterday for the second time, braving tough footing and rainy weather for a clear round with time added. Sir Oberon is Ellen’s 14-year-old Holsteiner/Thoroughbred gelding, and both Ellen and “Obie” managed an amazing save at the Hollow yesterday.
Co-commentating at the time, Will Coleman called Ellen’s save “the most graceful leg-hang you will ever see.”
Thanks to Nicole Trapp, we’ve got a full series of shots from the save. Check it out:
Great save, Ellen! We’ll call you Ms. Stickability!
