Worried Kate Garraway can be heard panicking in a video of her son being hurled from his horse.
KATE GARRAWAY has shared a video on Instagram of her son Billy being thrown from a horse during his riding lessons, with the mother-of-two shown terrified before racing to his side.
Kate Garraway, 54, of Good Morning Britain, can be heard gasping in terror after seeing her son Billy being flung from a horse he was riding. After addressing 11-year-old Billy’s mishap with her co-host Ben Shephard on GMB yesterday, the celebrity rushed to Instagram to share a video of the harrowing event.
During riding lessons, Billy, whom she shares with husband Derek Draper, can be seen learning to canter on the horse.
Unfortunately, the horse began to suffer from a nasty case of wind, forcing the animal to buck and knock Billy to the ground.
Following Billy’s fall, the mother-of-two dropped the camera she had been using to record his lesson before hurrying to check on him.
“Oh!” she exclaimed in surprise. Okay, fine!”
Kate used the video’s caption to provide more information about Billy’s situation.
“Darcey & Billy are hooked watching our wonderful competitors in the @olympics horse events,” she wrote to her one million followers.
“Not least because, as @benshephardofficial and I said on @gmb yesterday, you never know what will happen next.
“This was Billy’s first effort at a canter, and poor Banjo’s wind caused him to fall flat on his face (listen with the sound turned up and you can hear it!).
“It’s better to be outside than within! or maybe it’s better to have it on than off!!?!?”
After Billy’s fall from the horse, Kate quickly reassured her supporters that he was unharmed.
“Billy is well, by the way, and he and Banjo are still firm friends!! xxxx,” she said.
Fans weighed in on Kate’s post in the comments area, expressing their opinions on the video.
“Oh no, my heart skipped a beat when I saw that footage!! I hope he’s okay, and God bless him!”
“Oh bless him…,” said another.
He was doing so well…the best thing to do is get back in the saddle…,” says the rider.
“Wonderful Kate,” said a third individual. If you ride a horse, you must experience a fall.”
