Flying showjumping finishes in Chantilly [PICS]

It was fast and furious in the Airbus Group Masters 1.50m class at the Longines Global Champions Tour of Chantilly last week. A mammoth 22 riders reached the jump-off and it resulted in a high-octane racing finish — not surprising when there was a €15,000 top prize at stake.

Cameron Hanley and Antello Z won it for Ireland with a great dive across the line, but he wasn’t the only one to go all out down the finishing straight. We bring you some of the best photo finishes in pictures.
