    Videos: great cross-country saves

    William Fox-Pitt survives an unfortunate stumble in the water on Cool Mountain at the HSBC European Eventing Championships 2011.

    The pair also defied gravity at the Rolex turn towards the end of the course (pictured top) to completed without faults to help Britain to win silver and finish 7th individually.

    Earlier the same year, Gwendolen Fer and Leria Du Ter had a lucky escape in the Colt Pond at Badminton, but unfortunately fell at the Quarry later on the course and were eliminated.

    But still the best cross-country save ever has to be Andrew Nicholson riding Mr Smiffy at Burghley in 2000. That’s why he’s nicnamed Mr Stickability!
