“One day my horse, called Faldo, reared and I thought it was game over. I was charging around on him, show-jumping and picking up stuff and dropping it off. I think I just went for it too much and accidently gave him a confusing instruction, kicking him as well as reining him back.
“He thought I meant for him to stand up and the next thing I know he started going. I made the classic mistake of pulling on the reins to keep my seat and he started to go backwards, which is really dangerous because he was about to fall backwards on top of me. That was a near miss.” ~Benedict Cumberbatch
