X-country day at the WEG

Anticipation is mounting here at the horse park as the crowds stream in to witness the controlled flight if horse and rider over a course designed to test them both to the very brink of their abilities. It seems as though no photograph ever does justice to the challenges these fences and obstacles pose. Some are taller than me and wider than buses. I wish the test rider would wear a helmet cam so we could all see it as it truly is. Scary.

  1. Personally I think that course is cruel. I’d never ask a horse to take jumps like those. God bless the horses.
