Rio de Janeiro, Brazil – Ruy Fonseca, of Brazil, was having a good ride during jumping qualifying when his horse, Tom Bombadill Too, decided to ruin his day.  Cantering up to one of the jumps, Tom did an impressive sliding stop right in front of the jump, sending Fonseca flying over his head.  Fonseca landed gracefully on the ground, apparently uninjured.  Tom continued cantering around the arena until he was caught.

Dusting off his pants, and seeking to ease his hurt pride, Fonseca put the jump back together, shook hands with the arena hands, and walked off to a cheering crowd.
