The Duke of Edinburgh’s carriage was clipped — and a showing class disrupted at Royal Windsor — by a pair of runaway carriage horses.
Prince Philip was not hurt, but the panicked Friesians then careered into the Copper Horse Arena, where the intermediate show hunter class was taking place.
Producer Katy Carter’s partner Jason Lindley leapt over the fence and managed to stop the pair.
“He’s been filming with Steve Dent [equestrian stunt specialist] and one of the things he learned was how to stop galloping horses,” said Katy. “No one would have thought he’d be putting it into practice here!”
