London International Horse Show aims to end bleak show jumping year on a high

understand my passion for my sport. Even better, be passionate about it or…

this is such a good jumping position. it’s just chilled, no throwing the reins at the horse, no leaning on the neck. in an ideal world a little bit more release would have made it even better but it’s balanced and neutral and it’s so great. no stress.

He makes the height of that jump seem like nothing! Such a beautifully still body over such a large jump!
