JOCKEY Bryony Frost was sent flying after her horse Williamstowndancer jumped a rail at Cheltenham.
Frost was winning the race before the horse leapt over the side fencing after which she was thrown off the back of it.
Following the incident, Frost and the four-year-old horse failed to finish the race, which was won by Queens Gamble and rider Jonathan Burke.
Fortunately, it is believed that both Frost and Williamstowndancer are okay.
It is good news as Frost looked like she took quite a bad fall from the saddle of the horse at Cheltenham.
Horse racing fans watching were quick to react on social media as one tweeted: “Williamstowndancer obviously wants to go hurdling sooner rather than later. Hope Bryony Frost is ok after that. Mental.”
Another said: “Williamstowndancer emulates the wild antics of my old favourite Charlie Potheen when trying to jump the rails when in the lead at Cheltenham. Charlie actually did!”
A third added: “Williamstowndancer lunatic.”
While a fourth commented: “Williamstowndancer jumped the wrong fence.
“I got upset and looked away.
