A team of jockeys went head-to-head against a team of eventers on Saturday (1 February) night to find out who had the best stickability.
The riders tested out their rodeo skills to see who could stay on the longest on a mechanical bucking horse.
Some of the riders made it seem more difficult than others. William Fox-Pitt’s long legs were not enough to save him and he only lasted a disappointing 20sec on the horse.
In the end jockey Sam Thomas and eventer Laura Collett proved to have the greatest balance and grip.
In the final round to decide the winner, Laura managed to stay on for more than 6 minutes and was eventually allowed to dismount from the horse.
The evening raised more than £10,000 for the Nicholls Spinal Injury Foundation who fund medical research to try and find a cure for spinal cord injury.
