THIS is the incredible moment a horse blindfolded by her own noseband somehow manages to jump three fences perfectly.
Frau Georgia and jockey Tom Scudamore worked absolute wonders to avoid disaster in a race at Worcester.
The seven-year-old mare's noseband moved up her face during the 2m7f contest on Tuesday.
But she miraculously jumped the final three obstacles foot-perfect before finishing second by just over a length at 13-2.
The Neil Mulholland-trained runner was travelling ominously well on the outside in the home straight and looked certain to challenge to the line.
But it was just as she was really motoring that her noseband – a piece of equipment horses wear to help keep their head at the correct height when running – moved in front of her eyes.
That looked to have totally obscured her field of vision three jumps from home.
Fortunately she made it over one fence perfectly well before charging at the penultimate flight.
Scudamore cajoled her into the jump well there and she continued with the leader in her sights before clearing the last easily too.
In fact, it was only on the run-in where 11-4 favourite Coral found more to win.
The story of the race, though, was Frau Georgia's remarkable jumping feat while essentially blindfolded.
One impressed punter wrote on social media: "Outstanding from horse and jockey."
Another wrote: "Amazing stuff from horse and jockey."
One comment read: "Racehorses are incredible!"
Racing has seen a number of impressive performances in recent weeks.
Alex Cruz left one commentator purring over a skill he 'hadn't seen in 44 years' with this amazing win in the US.
While another rider in Australia was commended for somehow staying upright with a brilliant balancing act.
