Patrice Delaveau and ORIENT EXPRESS, World Equestrian Games, sept. 6th 2014.
This is the second round of the individual competition. They were already clear in the first round, however they had the obligation to go clear again in the second round to reach the top 4 and get into the final.
I have to aopologize for the awful shaky cam, but my heart was beating so fast at this moment it’s a miracle I could get anything on film. You can’t actually see the last fence because I was already on the edge of my seat, ready to get up regardless of the result…
I hope you can get an idea of what was the atmosphere like in the stadium. I swear it was intoxicating as everyone was holding their breath for each fence. You can actually hear the crowd lost it a bit during the delicate moments, then shush itself… I lost it myself at the end.
