The Cheese Wedge: Cheltenham Cross Country steeplechase

I commandeer a young lad into being my video cameramen so I can use my canon. I think he did a good job! Tremendously exciting to be up close and in the middle of this confusing Country cross Country steeplechase in torrential wind and rain - imagine what it's like - those wet leather saddles and reins and thin silks and freezing driving rain, mud and steam filled goggles and huge fences!!! Lacdoudal the winner is the grey horse. Watch how they have to jump; land and take off again. Takes an intelligent horse
