Prince Harry was thrown from his saddle at his recent polo tournament. Rider and animal were apparently unharmed.

Moment of shock on the polo field in California: Prince Harry (37) fell off his horse at a tournament in Santa Barbara last Sunday. This is reported, among other things, by the British newspaper “Metro”, which has several pictures of the fall.

At first, Harry is still focused on seeing him in action. He is wearing white pants, a dark green jersey, a crash helmet and goggles. Another photo shows the horse and rider falling on their sides just a short time later. According to the report, Prince Harry collided with another rider.

Apparently no one was injured in the fall. Both Prince Harry and his mount quickly got back up, but took a short break. The 37-year-old is said to have provided the horse with pats.

Harry has been riding horses since he was young

Prince Harry has been active in polo since he was young, following in the footsteps of his father Prince Charles (73) and his brother Prince William (39), who also sat on the horse for a long time. William is said to have given up the sport.
